This tour is a good length for younger paddlers who can team up with Mum or Dad or one of the guides. No previous paddling experience is necessary. Your guides will be with you every step of the way.

With a fleet of extremely stable Sea Bear sea kayaks, the experience will be even easier for first-time paddlers.
