We had a fun time kayaking out to the caves. We got to see a a few sea lions that swam up near us and saw some dolphins.
The guides, Tommy and Haley told us some stories and history about the area that was interesting and entertaining.

Great guide. Reasonable price and amazing views! Highly recommend. The one thing I would say to do is rent a wet suit. Pacific water is COLD!

A great kayak trip with a knowledgeable guide. Highly recommended for fit and agile people with good arm strength. Beautiful views of the caves and shore lots of baby seals.
