Our first ever time diving and it was fantastic, from Stevie in the office and Connor instructing it was a great experience, I was pretty nervous about breathing underwater and Connor’s calm guidance got me through and I was able to complete a full dive. A highlight of the holiday and a great life experience. Thank you guys - we also had to cancel a family member at the last minute and Stevie arranged a refund and nothing was a problem. Thanks also to Griso, very nice to meet you, too (might have spelt this wrong, sorry) Rob, Chrissy, Ollie and Luke

Great morning out. 45 minutes to Lobos, where you then moor for a few hours. You can spend an hour on the island, or just chill on the boat and snorkel/swim/float about for a few hours. Paella lunch and unlimited drinks. Nice vibe. I had to chase up pick-up details the night before (and wasn’t even on the passenger itinerary on the day of the trip, so glad I did!) but other than that it was all good.

We participated in the tour in 4 adults. We had a great time and Mariano and Paul, our guides, were funny, professional and kind. we did the 3 hour snorkeling tour. Everything is provided by them. Recommended!

Really good experience, all crew on board couldn't do enough for you. Definitely recommend

well organised and really enjoyed the whole trip. Staff were fab. Highly recommend!
