At the beginning of the experience, sublime weather, so really ideal for kayaking! Super friendly team, equipment included so great! After the wind picked up, the sea became difficult, so it was hard to enjoy the snorkeling... but the islet is really worth the detour, and the kayaking was still a great experience!

Without doubt the best way to see the coast and discover the island by going around in a kayak. It's nice and easy. Short stop in the center of the island where there is little to see or do. The city does not properly maintain the wastewater network so that the results of bacteriological water analysts are not compliant, which results in a ban on swimming and therefore snorkeling. The guide had warned us. I recommend this kayak trip. The guides are friendly and very professional.

Fun kayaking trip with a knowledgeable guide! The islet was beautiful and we were able to see many fish and coral. Wouldn’t recommend for small children or timid rowers because the trip is approximately 1 km each way in the waves and open ocean! Thrilling experience and we felt as though we had our workout for the day!
