Very nice tour with Aaron and his companion. The tour begins in the mangroves, the departure point is well prepared and it is easy to get into the canoe or the StandUp. The tour first leads through the mangroves, which you then leave in the direction of Sandspur Island, when you get there there are enough drinks, melons as a snack... Wildlife - we saw dolphins about 20 meters away, many birds and the highlight for us were the raccoons the island who are very trusting. The equipment provided is in great condition and in general the entire tour is highly recommended. Thank you for the nice trip.

Pick up point was clear and the bus was spacious, well maintained and had air conditioning. They allowed you the option of booking additional activities whilst on the bus.

2 hours of the surfing lesson and I was able to kinda stand on the board (never did it before). A lot of fun! Instructor was very helpful and friendly!!!

The most beautiful experience! The guides of an extreme kindness and the magnificent place. My favorite part was being able to feed the raccoons!

Very nice and patient guides. If the weather cooperates, the trip is definitely recommended. Also suitable for beginners
