Well worth it

This was such a nice experience. The best part was going into the surrounding mangrove and trying to navigate the kayak. Although we did not get to see dolphins the experience was amazing and the guide so chill and knowledgeable. Will definitely recommend doing this.

Fun, safe and scenic

I can’t swim but the calm/shallow water and life jacket plus an experienced guide make me feel safe. There are dolphins around we are lucky to see one just before getting into water. The bendy part of the river sided by mangrove was the highlight.

Dolphin Sanctuary & Kayaking

Our kayaking experience was great. Aiden was a wonderful guide and was very informative about the area we were kayaking around, the dolphins, and the shipwreck. Would definitely recommend this booking!
