Awesome experience! The guides were all super nice and useful helpful throughout the whole trip. It was great learning about the different beaches and points the tour took us to. When getting on and off the kayaking, the guides were very helpful and safety getting everyone into and off the sea.

This excursion was amazing, a must see, and the tour guide and his crew were incredible! I highly recommend! I (40 year old female) took my 7 year old and 70 year old parents and we all had an amazing time!

Great experience to repeat surely! Sea was a bit rough but definitely super funny! Guys guided us to visit incredible places: caves are stunning and you feel part of something great! Thanks
