Fun and Beautiful Morning of Kayaking!

Reviewed by: J_L, 2019/09/13

Had a wonderful trip on the calm waters of Zushi Bay. Was lucky enough to launch with Mt. Fuji looming through the distant haze. Paddled around watching fish jump out of the water, various birds soar above, wind surfers zip by, and board surfers catch waves off a nearby beach. Took a nice tea break and then headed for a closer look at a giant torii gate. The tour was exactly the peaceful and scenic experience I was looking for and Azumi was the perfect guide.

I've kayaked before, but given the guide's attentiveness and the Bay's calm conditions (I was told that the waters are always like that), I think the tour would be perfect for beginners. I enjoyed it so much I did a second tour later that week. Different guide (Koji this time) but another great experience. I'll definitely do the full day trip with Lounge Ever if I visit the area again!

The friendly owner and guides at Lounge Ever were helpful, fun, and laid-back,
and knew more than enough English (unfortunately I speak no Japanese)
for us to communicate and relate to one another. The kayaking equipment was excellent and Lounge Ever itself was quite comfortable (great coffee too!). There were showers and small lockers for valuables. No problem leaving backpacks at the lounge - I felt totally secure once I saw the set up - though there are lockers at Zushi Station if you don't feel like walking from the station with big items. (I actually left a cumbersome pack at Ofuna, a connecting station I knew I'd be heading back through.) Zushi itself was very easy to get to, as was the meeting point. The general area is worth exploring post-tour too.

I was initially a little skittish about booking through Veltra as I'd never used it before, but it worked perfectly and quickly. When I had a question post-booking, they relayed it to the outfitter and provided me with a timely answer. Payment went smoothly. So I was quite happy with that aspect of the experience too.
