We met at the tour agency's office, which was easy to get to. Helped Daniel pack into the van, then he drove us to the kayaking site. It took roughly 40 minutes to get there. At the kayaking site we learned how to use the kayaks, the paddles, what to do in case we capsize, etc... We all had waterproof pouches for any small belonging, like phones. I brought one of those transparent waterproof holsters for my phone so I could take photos. Worked pretty well. The kayaks each had a separate waterproof compartment for our backpacks.
After everyone preparing their own kayaks and donning our gear, we set out for some paddling. It takes a bit of learning how to navigate but it's a lot of fun. I wish I dressed a bit warmer (it was September) but it wasn't too bad. On a sunny day it would've been warmer, but we cought rain. After 1.5 hrs of paddling we reached our lunch spot, a charming wooded island in the beautiful archipelago. There - while our little group explored the island and took plenty of insta-content - Daniel cooked our meal. Basically hotdogs with plenty of toppings as well as tea and coffee. It tasted great after all the hard work. I particularly liked the vegan and gluten free options (these have to be requested when you buy the ticket). Then we headed back, on a slightly different route, stopped here and there, frolicked around in the water, as we were all more confident with the paddles now. Back at the kayaking site, we all washed our own kayaks and stowed away the equipment. This makes sense as we also got clean equipment ourselves. Then Daniel drove us back.
It was a perfect way to spend a day and make new friends. Highly recommend it to anyone.
