Amazing experience by sunset!

We chose the sunset slot to make the most of the changing light experience and enjoy a sunset boat trip without the extortionate fares of those boat trips that have the word 'sunset' in their title. It truly was an amazing trip, and our guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We had the bonus of having the boat to ourselves, as no one else had booked the slot! Very many thanks :-)

Chico was an awesome guide and gave us a fantastic tour. He is clearly passionate about wildlife and the sea. The trip was calm, soothing and thoroughly enjoyable.

Comfortable and pleasant walk, sighting of marine fauna with explanation in our language by the guide, we take the walk at 6pm, where many birds can be spotted in the place. I recommend the ride.
