If you are NEW to kayaking, over 40 or a bit out of shape…..this tour is not for you! It was a constant race to attempt to keep up with the tour guide who never looked back. At one point when the group and guide were no longer visible, finally made the decision to stop fighting and turned around. This was such a better experience to go at your own pace and enjoy the beauty of nature despite never seeing the emerald water or cave.

Hello everyone ! For anyone reading this review my name is Matthew and I am the owner who launched our guests this day . I personally helped this guest into her kayak a Pungo 125 which is a new super stable quick comfortable ride. I fixed her foot pegs for comfort and gave her a personal paddle instruction after Kylee had already went over a full paddle instruction. She stated she did not like the water and did not want to go into a cave from the beginning. I said don’t worry it’s not a deep cave but a grotto and she could relax in it’s shade and enjoy the glowing water . She said she would give it a try . After her leaving her first stop Kylee went up to catch her kids who raced up to the cave having a blast of a time ! Kylee had a radio and had Jared my extra guide stay with her and offered to move at a very slow pace. She said no I want to go back . Kylee was only 100 feet up from the beach and Jared waited patiently. She left the group and headed back I was informed on radio she was heading back to the marina . I retrieved her helping her out and even offered a personal tour around willow beach . She refused saying she didn’t want to go any further . Kylee took amazing pictures of her kids and went to air drop them she cut her off and said I don’t want them . Kylee even offered to take her way off our route from the Las Vegas strip to her Airbnb and She refused . Everyone else on this tour had a wonderful day . We really tried guys . Now please read the other reviews about Kylee and her great tour this day .
