    This was amazing from start to finish. I was the only one who booked to go that day so I had both instructors to myself. I got a message the night before confirming what time they would collect me from my hotel. This was my first time snorkeling and the instructors were very patient and took everything at the pace I wanted to go. We were in the water around 45-50 minutes and they were really informative, constantly pointing out things to look for and explaining the names of all the sea life we saw.

Were 4 hours on the road and was over again so quickly. It was a lot of fun and it was very nice! Got a map from the guide in which he marked the most beautiful views of the island that we could reach in no time. Everything went well and without any problems. I would recommend the tour in a group and the guide together. Driving alone on the streets with the choppers was a bit dangerous and with the guide the destinations would be better and faster to reach. Nevertheless it was a great adventure which will be remembered for a very long time :). Would definitely do it again.

Awesome team and I think perfect for beginners. The technical part was explained on land, then we started practicing in the water. The instructors really took time for individual feedbacks. So you could improve with every wave. Even if it didn't always work out, the instructors motivated you not to give up :) I would say turn your brain off and just enjoy it!

It was super organized and the route was clearly explained! We have seen all the points and oh what a beautiful experience it was. I really recommend the 3 hours, because then you have all the time to see everything and you might even be able to dive from the dunes

It was a success. I never rode an electric chopper, which made the experience even more fun. It is a highly recommended way to visit the Maspalomas area. Very well advised by the staff in charge of the activity.

Great experience! 3 hours is perfect to see all of Maspalomas. Had a great time!
