It was quite lovely. We enjoyed the paddle boarding. I would suggest making it clear when reserving this tour that you need an English speaking guide to orient you.

The description of this tour didn't match at all what we had. The people in charge were very nice. But my daughter and I were left with two kayaks and paddles on our own. No small group guided. I am a kayaker, we kayak for a while and left earlier.

Really good experience, very relaxed and easy going at the centre. The place where you get the kit is similar to a leisure centre or outdoor sports centre. The only thing was that the description suggests you get tuition- this was limited as the instructor didn't even get in the water with us. Better for more confident people, but us four girls had a great time!

the instructor showed me and my sister what to do on land but as we entered the water he helped us take some pictures then left us alone. We stayed in the water for an hour paddling around but got bored alone. would have enjoyed it if there was a group of us or if the instructor kept us entertained but we had to entertain our selves. We went in Oct which is one of their quiets periods.

This was not at all like what's described. There was no instructor, no one in the water with us, nothing! Other bookings with Viator have all been outstanding but this was really disappointing. Definitely not a lesson, more like 2.5 hours of rented equipment. Do not recommend if you're not experienced with either of these sports.
