What is Kayaking like?
Waves crash over the front of the kayak. All around, white water sprays up into the air. The relative calm of the flat-water section (where you start) that follows this 100-meter-long rapid seems like a long way off. Every wave that hits the side of the kayak holds the potential to throw you out of the boat and into the white-water.
Warm water, sunshine, tropical islands, and the perfect introductory rapids mean that your full day white water kayaking trip is sure to give you a memorable experience, off the tourist trail.
