The tour is great for tourists, and caters to faster and slower canoeing participants.

The scenery was out of this world fantastic, was a very easy tour, if you were worried about fitness. Waterproof protection is provided for your phones/valuables. Instructors stay nearby at all times. Dolphins were sighted on our tour, but it’s up to the dolphins really.

An excellent experience which I would recommend to anyone

An excellent experience which I would recommend to anyone. Our guide was informative and cheerful which added to the experience. You do need to be reasonably fit to complete the whole tour particularly if the wind is against you as it was on our return journey. We saw several dolphins close up which made it very special. Would recommend this to anyone visiting SA. The addition of somewhere to purchase a coffee or snack whilst waiting would be great.

It was a bit cloudy day but the water in the river was warm and all the staffs were so friendly and helpful

It was a bit cloudy day but the water in the river was warm and all the staffs were so friendly and helpful. Thanks to them, we could three dolphins at last! That was an amazing experience for my daughters, my friend and me. We also enjoyed the scenery and the course which kayak through amongst the mangrove forest. We could see lots of birds even flying pelicans as well.
