Both my wife and I are great adventure-freaks. After getting married, we tried all the major adventurous things there are. We had tried skydiving, snorkeling, bungee-jumping, deep-sea diving, etc. One weekend, while we were at home, we decide to do something new and different. It took us some time and some google searches to find out activities that could be done nearby. After a while, we came across the term Kayaking. It seemed interesting and we both agreed to go for it. We looked for companies and found Kayaking SRQ Tours and Travels. After reading about the tours, our interest got piqued and we decided to go for it.
It took us a little while to select a tour but we finally agreed for the ‘Guided Mangrove Tunnel Tour’. After reading about it carefully on the website, we carried all the necessary things stated such as hats, towels, sunblock, etc. We reached the place early to not be late for our tour. Our guide and instructor came an hour late. Although the schedule was disturbed by the late arrival, we chose not to pay much heed to the fact. We were really excited to get started. We were provided with Paddles and Lifejackets but not with dry bags for our electronic accessories. We were assured that we would not need it. Keeping the price of the tour in mind, I thought about how it is not okay to not provide us with essential things.
We were provided with a double kayak and to be honest, the kayak did not seem to be new. It was now time for our basic lesson. The guide did not seem to be too interested in teaching beginners. He showed us the paddling techniques only once. On asking for the lesson for a second time, he shut us out by saying ‘Once is enough’. The tour began. The waters seemed beautiful although we could see the dirty algae all around us, the water at first was not too deep. My wife clicked some beautiful pictures and we discussed how we would get them framed and put them up in our living room. The tour guide was lost in his own thoughts. He moved too far ahead of us. We had to shout and ask him to slow down. Although we spotted a few beautiful birds, the guide’s attitude was ruining the entire experience.
We kept on paddling. Soon, we were in the deeper waters. The weather had been cloudy all day and we were assured that it would not rain at all. But it rained.
The guide, instead of guiding us back, paddled away to save himself from the rain. We tried our best to save our electronic utilities from being damaged but we were not successful. Along with our phones, our camera got damaged too. We paddled back ourselves and on asking for compensation, we were denied as ‘it was not raining when we started’.
I would never, ever, ever recommend even my mortal enemy to go on a tour sponsored by Kayaking SRQ Tours and Travels.
