What people are saying about São Vicente, Cape Verde

We were picked up punctually at the agreed place, the communication in advance worked very well. It was very well organised. We drove to the beach in a minibus, got a short safety briefing and then went out to sea in small boats. It is a great experience to see these animals so close. If you wanted, you could also go snorkeling in the water. After that we were driven back. Thank you for the great experience!
