Why should I kayak?

First of all, kayaking is a very popular activity and a great way of exercise in a quiet and eco- friendly way, we take you snorkeling where you can't reach by car. We leave no trace and no smell of engines, fuel or diesel spill in the ocean. It’s a great way for every participant to actively participate and get the sense of what pedal kayaking is all about with us. 

 

I have a mustache, is it going to be a problem for snorkeling?

Yes, but we got our way around it. It's best if you can shave at least the top part where the mask seals. 

 

Can I bring my own snorkeling gear?

Yes, you can bring your own snorkeling gear for your comfort. We do have great masks and snorkel with a special treatment to prevent fogginess. Learn more about it on our trips. 

 

Can I bring my camera?

Yes, you can bring your camera we recommend a waterproof camera. However, if you don’t want to risk losing it, leave it behind as it is better safe than sorry. We take hundreds of pictures during the entire trip and they are available to purchase after the tour.

 

Can I drive to your location and leave my car there?

Yes, you can just let us know you'd like to drive and we'll send you our location. 

Do you provide lockers for our valuables and personal belongings?

We do not provide lockers but we do provide 20L Dry bags OR all personal belongings can be left in the minivan such as towels or bags. The less you carry the less to worry about! 

 

Do you provide food on the tour?

We carry a cooler with refreshments and dry snacks. We do not provide breakfast or lunch. Feel free to bring any additional drinks/ snacks not too much you can't carry.

 

Do you rent wetsuits?

No, we do not rent wetsuits but many people choose to wear a quick dry t-shirt or wet shirt for more protection from the sun. Our water is usually about 79F to 82F. I usually wear my long sleeve wet shirt I think is better sun protection than sunscreen or tanning stuff. 

 

I’m a good swimmer; do I need to wear PFD’s?

Yes, it is mandatory to wear the life vest and or life jacket we provide. We have two jackets; one for kayaking will keep you on the surface and a snorkeling jacket you can inflate/ deflate. Have it completely deflated gives you the opportunity of freediving. It is against our policy to go without a life vest or jacket.

 

I’m not a good swimmer can I still do the tour?

When kayaking one must always expect to capsize and swim. If you’re not comfortable in the ocean we do not recommend this tour.

 

Can I tip the guides?

Yes, you can tip your guides.
