Our initially planned kayak trip had to be cancelled due to high winds (and thus, very choppy ocean waves). While disappointing, I was thankful that they took safety so seriously. They were able to reschedule us 4 days later when the winds finally calmed down. They provided all the equipment, including a long sleeve shirt for those who didn't bring a rash guard. The Atlantic is cold - so take them up on the offer! The islet was so much fun to kayak around and we were able to look inside some caves. The crew was very nice, and very helpful, and were also enjoying themselves, which makes things more fun. Most importantly for me, the total number of people on the kayak trip was very small -- maybe 10 of us. It was easier and more enjoyable when not in a huge group.

Absolutely wonderful experience led by Bruno and a another one of their fun and encouraging employees. I was a bit anxious about the experience beforehand, but everything went smoothly. It was a beautiful and well-timed adventure to the islet and even in a cave via kayak. I felt like an olympic kayaker. Great people. Great time. Recommend.

At the beginning of the experience, sublime weather, so really ideal for kayaking! Super friendly team, equipment included so great! After the wind picked up, the sea became difficult, so it was hard to enjoy the snorkeling... but the islet is really worth the detour, and the kayaking was still a great experience!
