Since you paddle on the quieter MDI side (beautiful!) and because equipment (good) and service (nice) fit - there is also the maximum score in the low season.
My wife and I booked this kayak tour and had an awesome time. The guide briefed us and our fellow travellers (6 kayaks total) before we hopped into a van and drove to the boat launch to start our tour... more »
We did the 3 hour family kayak off of Hadley point. It was perfect for a family with a younger child (we had a 9 year old). The water was calm and hardly anyone around. Brad was very knowledgeable about the area, and was constantly looking out for wildlife for us. We saw a couple of eagles and even a harbor seal. Great time!
Was very fun!!! Travis our guide was a Rock Star! He had everything in control and made special attention that everyone was relaxed and having fun also was very knowledgeable. Saw many seals, porpoise,eagles, and great site seeing. All the staff were great. Travis remembered everyone's names right from the start. And on the quiet side on the island!
