Great trip with great bays. Pure nature experience. The next day you can expect sore muscles, but it is absolutely worth it. The guide was also very nice and took good care of the group. The various bays are great for snorkeling.

Very friendly tour guide. Everything was fine and we really enjoyed the trip. It’s just needed to know that especially the way back is challenging due to a long period without breaks. But all in all it’s a worth it trip to do.

The experience was the highlight of my holiday! Ivan was really nice and guided us through the bay, letting us paddle at our own pace. The views from the Kayak were amazing, definitely reccomend it! Thank you, Ivan!
