There are difference ways to enjoy the beauty of the bay. And kayaking is one of the best way to explore the beauty of this marvelous natural gift. Paddle through islets, around the islands, go under hidden caves, get closer to limestone karts, and unspoiled beaches …are wonderful experiences.

Kayaks go where other big boats cannot. Depending on trip length, and the weather condition you will have different kayak route and time frame. Cruise with us means that you will have more time enjoying this activity without rush as in the mass touristic area.

Our staff on boat or tour guide will help you use paddle and guide you to the safe area. Life jacket is a must for this activity.
