Es una experiencia fantástica que cualquiera que visite Fuerteventura debe vivir, la gente del barco fueron súper simpáticos y amables. ¡Nos lo pasamos genial! Lo recomiendo a todo el que pueda permitírse una escapada a un pequeño paraíso.

We are so happy that we decided to do this before we left. Our two guides were so so nice. We had a great time and the food was great. Perfect 4 hours and money well spent.

Everything was terrific, we had a nice group of 12 randommers, some couples, some families, all good fun, and the captains made it a great experience.

Absolute must do. Best day of the whole holiday. I cannot fault the boat (boat 50) and the team were just fab. Nothing was too much for them .

Well organised, chilled, fun. Lovely experience and great value for money
