All organized very well. Easily found the meeting point where we were greeted by the friendly and nice guides. They explained to us how the tour would take place and given the option to leave backpacks and get dressed by them. Miguel acted as a guide in the kayak, continuously explaining the whole coast and the caves we visited. Overall a really good choice.

The fact that you can sit down on a seat with a handle to hold on is great. We went in around the caves and along the coast simply beautiful. A quick dip in the Ocean and then out to sea at speed to find Dolphins. We must have went out a good 10km of the coast in the speed boat the beautiful hot summer breeze in our faces a lovely experience
