I gave my husband a surprise for his birthday, both the instructor Pablo and the owner were very kind, they helped me with everything I asked for. Despite the fact that the sea had waves, they advised us where and how to navigate safely. The only thing that half an hour was a bit short for us, for the next time we will rent more time, we will repeat for sure !!

We did this canyoning trip with 3 twenties and 2 50 year olds. It was good for everyone. And a challenge for everyone. We swam, slid, jumped and based. Our guide was Israel and he is very funny and professional. The tour was breathtakingly beautiful in terms of nature. We all really enjoyed it and had a great time

Extremely knowledgeable guides, who also had excellent hosting skills. The trip was both fun and relaxing, and we felt very safe.

Juan was an amazing guide we had so much fun, this was my second time doing this activity

Very relaxing. Skipper was great and plenty of cold beers in the fridge.
