The kayak experience activity is with a guide/instructor: it includes complete equipment, safety vests, technical presentation before departure, practice on the stream, then the descent into the rivers and inland streams. During the tour, the guide shares information about the ecosystem of the delta and we learn about the flora and fauna.
