What an amazing experience! We took our four children between 9 & 13. We all had so much fun! Jose was our guide he was so friendly and made sure we had everything we needed for an unforgettable day. We definitely recommend this for those looking something to remember for years to come! I would recommend you hire the shoes you need proper footwear that you don’t mind swimming with. Jose recommended Rufino restaurant in Benahavis afterwards as you definitely work up an appetite.

Wonderful experience our guide Luna was so warm and friendly and the whole experience was so much fun and so relaxing. Watching the sun set while paddling around the warm waters of the marina. It felt so free. Would highly recommend even if you've never done it before or aren't sporty. It's v safe and you won't be disappointed.

The experience was absolutely great. Luna was our guide and she was the best. Lots of chat and fun. She was very helpful to me when my knee got sore. Luna was even a photographer for us, with beautiful photos. Really enjoyed the experience, but Luna made it. Thanks a mill :)

Lovely experience with my husband and 12 and 10 year old daughters. Jose was so kind to my youngest who was a little nervous. When we come back the girls want to do his kids camps! Thank you

Super delicious trip !! It can clearly be recommended. It is a trip where most people with a good physique can easily join but where you are also challenged accordingly
