So professionally organised. Pedro and Fabio where absolutely great, friendly and very welcoming. They were knowledgeable and always happy to share with us. I highly recommend this adventure and would definitely be back for round two. Thanks

Really enjoyed our experience with Roy. Took us out on the Kayaks and then showed us places to snorkel. Told us lots about the area and even let us hold a starfish. We had fun with a great group of people.

In the kayak you can only take the essentials with you, everything else gets wet!

A really chilled ride on a pirate ship and seen dolphins and whales.

A perfect way to get to and explore the Botanical Garden
