Excellent tour this afternoon with Levi. Really great guy and a overwhelming dedication to making the tour the best it could be. A locally owned business belonging to a top guy, would definitely book with him over anyone else. Thanks Levi.

A trip with a pedalokayak was a new experience for us. Watching the seal's yoga was amazing. Levi and Liz were super guides, although we couldn't understand so much. Our Englisch isn't perfect, but it was a great day. Thank you. Uta und Wolfgang
