I would highly recommend a kayak adventure with Fore-adventure. Josh our instructor was great. He was knowledgeable about the local area and sites and passionate about making the experience, not just a trip out on a kayak, but wanting you to take more than that away from you time out on the water. I learnt a lot about seaweed, plants, things that are influencing the environment in the area, and lots more. Really interesting!! Thank you Josh.
