Breathtaking places fun day we reached the cave with board and fins in my opinion the best and fastest solution I and others did not even put on wetsuits The water was not cold, then in addition to the caves the beach also dances is the whole panoramic tour that is possible to do

Super day, magnificent hike in 7 hanging valleys, and very pleasant boat trip. And above all a top guide! Thank you Vasco for taking the time to share your knowledge and for answering our questions always with a touch of humor. I highly recommend !

In time pick up, with clear and good instructions about the bodyboard usage. I found it's way less time - 40 mins to spend in the cave. Generally, good value for money

It was an amazing experience, Andres was great fun and he took us some really beautiful spots. I would do it again in a heartbeat. ❤

Bruno was a enthusiastic and passionate tour guide. He really made us feel comfortable during our first paddle boarding experience.
