Our guide Manu greeted us warmly and explained the equipment and how to use it. After we had put on our suits we were off. The waves were a bit rough, but we were still able to fully enjoy the snorkeling tour and felt safe and well looked after at all times. We can absolutely recommend this 45-minute tour (with Manu).

Beautiful morning. We were with our 2 daughters, and they didn't know how to kayak at all. After 30 minutes, it was perfect 🤩. We didn't get to see a turtle and dolphins. Thanks again for the photos, it was great experience.Virginia
