Me and my son had a great time. The location was a bit hard to find and we got there slightly after the 9 am start but with the number of people there it was not a problem and the whole event was no stress at all. I am a bit oversized compared to the average and they were quick to accommodate me and make sure I had the right equipment. The guides were friendly, made wonderful and clear explanations in multiple languages and were able to handle a large group safely and ensure everyone had fun. It was the perfect way to get up close to the islands, have a swim (we brought our masks with us) and get a bit of sun and exercise in. I would certainly recommend it and even repeat it again if I return there.

La actividad de kayak a las Islas Medas es espectacular. Hay que tener en cuenta que son algo más de 2h sin parar de remar en mar abierto, por lo que es una actividad cansada. Recomiendo llevar gafas o máscara de buceo para poder observar el fondo marino en las islas, es espectacular. El guía muy simpático y divertido. Un 10 en la atención por parte de los trabajadores.

It was all really well organised. We rowed up to the islands and then we could enjoy a 10-minute swim in that natural space. We swam back all safe and sound. I’d repeat the experience with them, for sure.
