The actual kayaking and snorkeling on the first part was great. We saw octopuses, jellyfish, fish and I got to jump off a cliff (about 15 feet) which was my favorite part. It was an incredible experience and we were having a great time. We didn't get to go on the second half of the trip because the people in the kayak next to us panicked when they couldn't get back into their kayak and they launched their kayak into the air and it landed on my knee so we had to go back to shore. I still rate it as excellent because what we saw was great - just make sure you pay attention to the people, and kayaks, around you.

Matias was simply the best! Can not say enough good things about our day with him. We felt safe the whole time and had a blast. Sign up for a trip with him, you won't regret it

Lovely experience, the crew members were extremely nice, good wine and snacks. We even saw a sea turtle :)

Really fun trip out and did more kayaking than was expected. Nice to stop off at beaches too.

It was amazing, the guides are so nice, excellent and unforgettable experience
