Carlos was a great skipper, he adapted the tour to the strong wind and the rather cool temperatures, so that we visited a small fishing village on one island and then drove along the other islands and admired the sunset from the boat. Carlos was very friendly, spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable. I really recommend this tour!

We had a privileged moment in this magnificent lagoon. The sunset, the deserted beach, the animals ... It's worth the trip! Our guide Miguel was at the top he gave us lots of information and with a lot of humor. An excellent activity that I recommend!

Was 100% worth the money. Had a very good supervisor. Who also had jokes in the house. The sunset can be described in one word: breathtaking!

Great day out and lovely experience. Capitán Luís was a fantastic guide and even encouraged/helped us to clean up some ocean trash.

An authentic experience and very kind and attentive guides. I recommend 100%. Thanks again.
