I would strongly recommend the single kayaks, they are much easier to steer! Duncan runs a very organised outfit, he brought in added help for safety on our trip. We got some local history along the journey

Duncan is an awesome guide. There was a first-time kayaker in our group and Duncan was confidence inspiring. Absolutely good fun for all skill levels. Excellent communication. Downpayment required but easily sorted online. The photos taken were an added bonus.
