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.
Wonderful experience along the coast of San Jose, professionalism on the part of Jorge, our monitor who explains each of the details of the natural park, without a doubt we will repeat.
Punctuality, security, knowledge and explanation by the guide. We had to delay the departure for a few days due to the wind and there was flexibility and good service at all times.
Very good guide. A pleasant walk knowing the history of the park and learning. Highly recommended.
Great few hours kayaking, never tried it before but soon got the hang of it
