Really fun, we had two double kayaks and two paddleboards. Worked very well for different levels of confidence in the water in the group so everyone could get involved and enjoy it! We went in three different caves and paddled round all the beaches. The guides were lovely and funny and we felt very safe with them. Beautiful coast, best way to explore. Much better than getting a boat into the caves.

great tour Fast boat. Everything was there. Saw dolphins, guide told us about caves and beaches. Even an insider tip where you can get married very romantically. If your partner should say no, you can easily push him into the sea from there.

Everything was really great, everything was well organized! (The only downside was that the exact pick-up time was not known until 11 p.m. the day before)! To recommend!!!

This is a must! Best value for money, the crew and staff were amazing, the food and drinks were flowing! Do not sleep on this! Book it now.

Amazing experience you must to go visit caves and saw dolphins
