Did the Swingers Combination of bush walk and sea kayaking. Superb scenery: excellent guides full of information on history, natural history of geysers. Perfect for anyone of average fitness - no kayaking experience needed.

Not so commercial as the rent of kayak rentals but good equipment, good programmes. Only the personnel seems to be in a hurry all the time! They do not understand that English couldn't be your home language.

Water was a bit rougher that we had hoped but the can't do much about that :-). Hike was very nice and the lunch and coffee were awesome.
