I cannot recommend this tour enough for anyone interested. JB and Alex were amazing tour guides and gave my group an outstanding experience! Kayaking was great and not too bad if you're a novice at it. The cliff jumping was my favorite part, the jumps weren't too bad but high enough to give you a thrill without fearing for your safety. Snorkelling was great too, the water was crystal clear and you could swim with schools of fish or even see an octopus or two if you're lucky. They took us to an amazing mom & pop-style restaurant on the way back and the food was amazing, phenomenal cheesecake. Overall, this trip was especially for the price. Can't recommend it enough!

It was a fantastic day out on the beautiful sea. We had a great guide - thank you so much again JB - so everything went super smooth and seemed easy and manageble even though we weren't very experienced with the kayak. We had a good variety of options for lunch and some time to walk along the coast where we found some picturesque views. It was great doing this with a small group. Everything was well organised and the equipment was good and is kept clean.

Super fun tour with a small group, gives the feeling that your just amongst friends. JB was an amazing tour guide, very knowledgeable of the area and an all around great guy. Would definitely recommend this company and this trip specifically to anyone visiting the area

Absolutely LOVED IT!!! The tour guide was incredible! So knowledgeable and friendly. Spoke very well in English. We had a fantastic time. The views were gorgeous, the guide had great stories and facts. It was phenomenal.

John was very personable and handled the boat well.
