What do I wear?
You will want to wear clothing that you don’t mind getting a little wet. You won’t get soaked, but a little bit of splashing is normal. Dress in clothing that is active and appropriate for the weather.
What should I bring?
All you’ll need is active clothing, sunscreen and other sun protection, a water bottle, and maybe your camera. We provide all safety gear, plus a splash jacket and spray skirt to keep you as dry as possible.
Do I need to be experienced?
Not at all! The Tiki Tour is great for first time paddlers and families. The pace and the route will be adapted by your guide to fit the needs of the group.
How long does it take?
From the time we pick you up, until the time we drop you off, you should anticipate about 4 hours. Transport by water-taxi is usually about 20 minutes each way, and we’ll spend about 2.5 hours on the water and picnicking.
Do I need to be able to swim?
You do not need to be able to swim, but please let your guide know so that they can make sure you are comfortable on the water.
Can we have a private tour?
Yes! If you would like a private tour, please contact us to book it. The cost for a private Tiki Tour is $220 for adults and $95 for children under 13.
Will I fall in?
The kayaks we use for our Tiki Tours are very stable, so it is unlikely that you will fall in. Your guide will be there to help you learn to use your boat and show you how to manouever it safely, as well as to assist if you have any difficulties.
Will I get wet?
We will try and keep you as dry as possible, but getting a little wet from the splashing of your paddle is normal.
What type of kayak do you use?
We use a double sea kayak with a simple rudder system called a Mission Eco Niizh. They are very stable and great for first time kayakers.
What weather do you kayak in?
We go rain or shine! If there’s a lot of wind around making the lake choppy, we know some great sheltered spots where we can still go kayaking!
How far do we kayak?
How far you go depends on how fast your group decides to paddle, but typically Tiki Tours go a total of 5-8 km.
