The estuary is a lovely area, abundant with seals, otters and birds.
To be honest, the bike seats were extremely uncomfortable. If I went back, I would kayak rather than bike.

The owner had a personal emergency in early December 2018 and the voucher has not been able to be used. I think the voucher time should be extended. I made a reservation in December but he had to cancel due to emergency. Emailed me he would not be back until 2019. I'd like a refund or credit.

Easy to cover a significant distance - physically easier than a kayak.
