  1. Are kayaks easy to tip over?
    Kayaks aren't any tippier than canoes or any other small boats.  One advantage to kayaking is your paddle, which is held across your body helping with balance. 
  2. If I can't swim, can I still go on a kayak tour?
    Sure! Swimming skills are not a requirement. For safety, everyone is required to wear a Personal Flotation Device at all times while on the water.
  3. Are water, beverages or snacks available?
    Yes, there are beverages, energy bars, ice creams and snacks available for purchase before or after your tour.
  4. Is gratuity included in the package price?
    Gratuity is not included in the tour package. If you are happy with the service you receive, your guide would greatly appreciate any tips!
