In our tours we use tandem SIT kayaks (boat for two persons) for their safety, easy handling and stability. We also have single SIT kayaks only in case of single travellers and/or odd number bookings. When booking, you select number of passengers, not boat or boat type. The type of boats will be chosen on spot accordingly by the guide, not upon request.

Participants must be at the meeting point 15 minutes prior to the departure time!
