    Kris_M, May 2022
    The guide was knowledgable, capable and helpful. Kit was well managed and all staff nice to deal with. Weather was beautiful and trip with a mixed group was enjoyable. Only slight mark against, it would be great if they could arrange photos of the groups.
    Great 👍
    Galle_M, Nov 2021
    Beautiful sight, motivated and passionate team. Chilly weather in November, but the equipment was suitable. We had a nice surprise : goats climbing on the rocks around us. We really enjoyed the experience.
    Response from Host, Nov 2021
    Mountain goats! They are a privilege to observe! The cliffs have a different beauty when they are around :) Thanks a lot for the review, we always strive for the best, as we have one of the best surroundings around the whole coast! See you next time, maybe with warmer weather! Javier
    Great way to spend the day with family.
    cslatts13, Nov 2021
    We had a lovely family day out with teenagers and adults kayaking and snorkelling in clear blue waters. Sophie was extremely helpful when we had to change our dates very last minute and the guides were all super helpful and charming.

    Toby_M, Sept 2021
    Amazing experience, with a guide who showed a beautiful passion for the environment and the job. Very friendly and accommodating. A relatively good level of fitness is recommended as the kayaking can be quite difficult. 10/10 will definitely be returning!

    Good experience
    Ammar_A, Aug 2020
    Everything is fine, except the time for snorkeling, would be a great experience if we have more time for it.
    Response from Host, Aug 2020
    Thank you so much for your opinion. I am glad that in general you liked the excursion. The kayak route with snorkeling lasts 2.5 hours in total. During the excursion we make a stop of approximately 30 minutes in which we do snorkeling. Increasing the diving time would mean that we would not have enough time to see the spectacular cliffs of Cerro Gordo or cave that in our opinion is one of the main attractions of the route. It is true that diving is also a high point and very attractive and pleasant, to which we could extend the duration, but based on the opinions of the vast majority of our clients, the total duration of 2.5h is the most appropriate and also a longer duration would increase the price that we have already adjusted as much as possible. Regards
    JalalEddin_D, Aug 2020
    Nice experience, need to be ready for pedaling for around 3 hours and swim for a bit, the first cave u cant get in, but u can for the second one
    Response from Host, Aug 2020
    Thank you for your comment! We're glad that the experience was nice, we know it's quite a sporty activity but good to hear you enjoyed it overall. See you next time!
    Private kayak & snorkeling tour
    Yvonne_S, Aug 2020
    Great private tour by Sebas, thanks again! Seagulls do indeed live longer than 30 years. This and other info about the tour were very interesting. Snorkeling excellent, caves beautiful but not spectacular. Perfect for all ages, in our case 50+ and teenager.
    Response from Host, Aug 2020
    Dear Yvonne, great to hear you enjoyed the experience, it's always a pleasure to have a curious and eager group like yours!
    Nice day at the sea
    Juliane_N, Jul 2020
    Nice trip with guide. However, If you already got fins and mask, you may consider Just to rent a kayak and do the trip alone

    Excellent day out. We were a party of 9 with 5 young kids. Everybody throughly enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend.
    Response from Host, Jun 2020
    Great to hear Christof! I am glad that the whole group liked to join as the activity is for all ages and we have masks and fins in all sizes.
    Sandra_F, Oct 2019
    Our leaders were very helpful and nice. Beautiful and fun. My friend who never kayaked didn’t realize she had to put her feet in the indents so she had her feet straight out which made it difficult to paddle. She figured it out have way thru which which made it easier to paddle. Overall very fun
    Nice Trip with nice guys
    Zelin_B, Oct 2019
    We booked this trip in october and had really good wheather conditions. It was really fun with our guide kayaking to the beautiful caves and while snorkeling we had the oppurtunity to be very close to many species of fish. It was awesome!
    COOLGUY22, Oct 2019
    Amazing experience. Really good English from our guide. First time for me Kayaking and Snorkeling. Best 2h30 min of my 2019 year. Was not difficult at all. You all should try!

    Did the trip (adult and two adolescents) and had a great time. During the trip the guide explained and showed us several things worth knowing. The snorkling part was also nice yet chilly.
