IT WAS THE BEST EXPERIENCE EVER! It was the first time I rode a Jet Ski. The guides taught me how it works and I enjoyed it a lot. What I liked most is that they give you liberty to go on the speedy you want to. I felt I was flying across the sea. It is safe and lifesaver jackets are provided. I will definitely do it again. They only take very nice pictures (although they need to be purchased afterwards). They do pick you up which is great. My advice is: do not take an unadventurous person with you. If your fearful friend wants to go, have them rent a jet ski for themselves. Go and have fun!

A good excursion to visit the main attractions of Fuertaventura! The transfer went very well at the scheduled time the ferry is very comfortable as well as the bus to go to the different sites. Our guide spoke French which allowed us to learn more about the Canary Islands! I recommend this excursion which we enjoyed very much.

Great tour to see a bit of Fuerteventura in a day! Transport door to door, friendly guides and plenty of time to explore the areas on your own. We received info about the island and places visited on the bus while some recommendations were given at the locations.

Highly recommended. Food amazing, Sergio and Nathan brilliant hosts.

Excellent experience, brilliant watersport activities
