 The daily pace duel with "Hjertøya" end the season this weekend, but there are other deals for people who do not have your own boat. June, Didrick Ose in DID Adventure had an offer of daily trips by sea kayak to Molde islets.
 Moldivene. Guides Jaime Sharp and Thomas Berg Hestad provides safe passage in the steady one-and two-man kayaks. The offer will continue through August.
 There is a reason many have begun to call for Molde Holmene Moldivene. This is really something to show for tourists, and kayaking makes people experience nature in a close way.  We add up to a trip on the 4 to 5 hours from Lubbers to Sæterøy and Hjertøya.  On the way we go on land to eat lunch and stretch your legs.  We have put us at a reasonable price, 500 per person.  Then lunch included, "says general manager of the DID Adventure, Didrick Ose.
Saturday a week ago, there were seven people on the trip with Jaime and Thomas: Mari Skeie, Svein Tore Tande, Grant Potter, Max Cammidge, Sebastian Bjerkvik, Anita Pedersen Harald Pedersen.
– Vi hadde en flott tur i strålende vær. - We had a great trip in glorious weather. This really inspired several trips on the lake with kayaks, "said Anita Pedersen.
God opplevelse. Good experience. The tours begin with a brief review of the safety, basic paddling techniques and how to control the rudder on a kayak with his feet.
This is the guide, not a kayak course.  The emphasis is, therefore, that participants will gain a good experience.  After a brief chat, sitting all in kayaks on the way to Molde islets, "said Jaime Sharp. He comes from New Zealand and educated padleinstuktør with long experience as a guide in many countries.
 Norway is a wonderland for people who want to experience nature at sea, rivers and mountains. Had Molde  been in New Zealand or Canada there would have been plenty of offers of the kind that DID Adventure offers, he says.
  Security. Hestad Thomas can reassure people who are afraid to pass when they cross the fjord in such a flimsy craft.  We use stable kayaks. Are you sitting in one of our two-man kayaks, both go for it if they get the kayak to go around. Should anyone be so unfortunate to fall into the sea, we will make sure they are up in the kayak again within a few minutes. All paddle course with the life vest, "said Thomas Berg Hestad.
 DID Adventure want the participants to get a good paddling and nature experience. The content of the trip can be to some extent varied according to require from the participants.
– Vi padler gjerne rundt til sørsida av Sæterøya. - We like to paddle around the south side of Sæterøy. Der får vi ofte nærkontakt med havørn. There, we often close contact with the eagles. 

Lunch we take in Hjertøya, and then a tour of the Fisheries Museum of natural elements.
The nature trail is popular when we have Family on tours, and of course we Can swim during the course Home through the idyllic Valan (lagoon), "said Jaime Sharp.
  More tours. Didrick Ose hope more people get your eyes for this trip.
