Just the peace of the water and views

My first time kayaking since high school and I loved it. The view was absolutely amazing and currents beginners friendly. $50 for a 2 hour canoe ride on your own. A few fast spots but nothing you can’t handle.
1st time kayaking

Excellent adventure. Well worth it. Next time we will take the 4 hour tour. The guide explained very well how to work the kayaks for first timers and we had so much fun. Definitely recommend.
