There are 5 groups of participants in this trip, a total of 10 people. Two people and one boat, two guides accompanied by one boat each. One guide took the lead and the other stayed last. Unfortunately, 15 minutes after the departure of one group of participants, they were unable to control the canoe, and the tail-guiding guides led them to withdraw. At the end of the event, another group of participants did not know how to row, and after consciously rowing to the far sea, they gave up rowing on their own, waiting for the guide to rescue them. I have a boat that I can paddle freely, so close to the sea lions.
