"Our family of 4 enjoyed the trip very much. The coast line is amazing and we´ve had a great guide who told us lots of interesting stories about it. Thank you very much! "

"We were able to go on a morning kayak tour with Arthur. It was just us (3 in our kayak, two adults and one 4 yr old) and two other couples. It helped that we had perfect weather and calm seas. This was a great experience visiting caves, beaches, mini geology lessons, and more. Highly recommend!"
★★★★★

"nous sommes sortis en espérant voir des dauphins , mais sachant que ce n'était pas du tout garanti, malgré le fait que nous étions les seuls sur l'eau à la recherche des dauphins (ce qui est plus difficile pour les trouver), notre pilote à réussi (grâce a son expérience et ses yeux de lynx) à trouver un banc de dauphins d'une vingtaine d'individus, qui sautaient , nageaient autour du bateau, c'était fantastique. Nous les avons accompagnés pendant près de 45 minutes enchanteurs, et ensuite avec notre accord, nous sommes allés voir la côte... bref, superbe sortie en bateau au milieu des dauphins avec des accompagnateurs très sympas"
