An experience I had always wanted to try.....I wasn't disappointed. The 2 guides were friendly, helpful & knowledgable. After a quick lesson we set off from a beautiful cove in Las Negras and kayaked along the coast, into a cave & onto another cove for swimming. The scenery was spectacular & it was a great feeling to sit on the waves.

We booked in his trip for a birthday surprise for a 68 fit year old! All relaxed, full instructions given then off we went into the kayack with iced water given also. We traveled around the coast being given the history and photos taken en route. Snorkeling came in a bay half way where we saw fish. Then back. Very good morning out and definitely recommend this as easy to book and full support at all times during the session.

Esta semana de septiembre hicimos mi pareja y yo la actividad de Kayak + Snorkel. La realizamos con Dani y Javi, unos chicos encantadores. Salimos muy contentos, porque nos hicieron la actividad muy amena. No era la primera vez que realizaba una actividad en kayak con una empresa y no tiene nada que ver. Nos llevaron por cuevas y nos explicaron muchas cosas de interés sobre el parque natural de Cabo de Gata e hicimos una parada para realizar snorkel en el Playazo de Rodalquilar. Y al principio nos explicaron como usar el remo y qué hacer en cualquier circunstancia para personas que era la primera vez que cogían un kayak. Nos hicieron sentir seguros y nos divertimos con ellos. Fue una experiencia muy divertida y entretenida.
