1. The guide did not orientate us on the equipment, didnt tell us how safely navigate the lagoon. 2. We had no guide come wothh us to make sure we were ok. 3. We spent longer than a hour coz it was dificult paddling against the current, and still then there was no intrest paid by the guide. Neither did he even come and look for us. 4.we were concerned for our safety as ot was most of ohr first time kayaking. And we got a reaponse saying dont worry u have a life jacket. 5.on arrival back to the point, we had to get ourselves out the water andbring our kayaks back on the dock ourselves. We found the guide in his shop minding his own business, with no care in the world. 6. Blatant unintrest of the guide was shocking So, DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS ACTIVITY AT ALL, AND HOPE THEY FIRE THAT GUIDE COZ THE DISRESPECT WAS ON ANOTHER LEVEL!!!
