"Fuimos los 4 miembros de la familia con nuestro perrito. Montamos en el barco y nos explicaron lo que íbamos a hacer. Montamos en los kayaks e hicimos un recorrido a lo largo de toda la costa mientras nos iban explicando cosas y informando de datos curiosos. Regresamos al barco y nos dieron un tiempo para bañarnos y saltar al agua. Una experiencia genial!!"
"It was an amazing experience: adventurous and beautiful. Just perfect. Don’t hesitate to do this kayak tour: it’s a pretty long distance that you are covering on the kayak and you see a lot of beautiful cliffs that you pass through and around and stop in a cave for a little story from the tour guide here and there. The team was very friendly, nice music on the main boat and even a chance to jump from the boat and swim around before going back if you want. "
