    Overall a very good tour where we did some hiking and some challenging kayaking. The guide showed a lot knowledge of kayaking and the surrounding water, and we really enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Due to weather, we had to change the kayak route, and we couldn't get close to the Split Apple Rock, instead we were able to take photos on the water taxi from far away. Definitely check weather forecast before booking because it does make a difference.
