This was an amazing trip that exceeded expectations. Sunbathing on the Catamaran trampoline while watching the beautiful scenery was so wonderful and my first paddle boarding experience was great fun. All the staff were brilliant and we look forward to doing a similar trip when we are back next year.

Friendly and pleasant staff. Well organized. Sufficient sun and shade space. Also very suitable for children (under four years). Right price/quality ratio. Worth higher price. Nice drinks, no soft drinks. Many dangers and also room for swimming, paddling and snorkeling. Plenty of room for numbers.

Very professional, friendly and attentive crew. Safety assured. Perfect formula to discover the Algarve coast and its magnificent rocks/caves. 3 hours including 1 hour of "break" to swim, paddle initiation (which we loved) and water games. We highly recommend!

Staff very friendly . An explanation was given at the beginning as to what to expect . Boat wasn’t overcrowded. Snacks sold on board. Will definitely recommend.

Great experience, staff was awesome and felt like a luxury yet fun experience! Good value for money with drinks on board at a very reasonable price!
