Hilde our host was brilliant, full of anecdotes, local knowledge, and some great recommendations. We were very well looked after during our 6hr visit to Fuerteventura :)

I haven't seen I defined it, but it's the ocean it's ocean! Stupendous anyway, beautiful island, unique experience and to be repeated

Hilda is an exemplary guide who explained the point of interest in a humorous manner.

Very nice experience. Good atmosphere on the boat and very pleasant islands
