Kayak rentals, including glass-bottom kayaks, provide an alternative to those who prefer to see these beautiful creatures without getting wet. Stand-up paddle boarding and surf lessons are available nearby, as well as sunset dinner cruises, snorkel and scuba excursions, whale watching boats, and more.
