We were a little nervous about our first time kayaking on a marsh being from Indiana, but Kate put our family right at ease. She showed us the ropes and made sure we enjoyed every single minute. She really made us feel comfortable and ensured that we loved our experience. She was so knowledgeable about the ecosystem, shared fun facts, and answered our many questions! This was by far one of the best memories of our entire vacation. We recommend COA hands down and will definitely be back!!Angela May, March 2019 (Trip Advisor)
