Q&A with Peter Jones, Owner and Sea Kayak Guide
Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about?
We have a skills-based Quickstart Kayaking workshop for beginners and intermediate paddlers, as well as weekly sunset and sunrise excursions. We offer Epic Kayak workshops where you can try out your sea kayaking skills in these innovatively designed boats. We also provide comfy overnight accommodations.
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We like to think that most folks can learn to paddle all day without getting tired, so firstly we'll provide you with an ultra-light carbon-fiber paddle, which is easy on the wrists and arms, and then we'll teach you some of the energy-efficient techniques you can use to help you get the most out of your paddling.
I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience?
At the beginning of each excursion, we will plan the day's excursion using a nautical chart and have comprehensive on-the-water training in paddling technique and safety procedures. We also review what to do in an emergency situation. The planning and safety talk will take about an hour.
