    The tour is highly recommended and we also saw some fish. Unfortunately, we had to break off after almost 45 minutes because the current was too strong and the tour could not continue for safety reasons. Our tour guide was very attentive and friendly and always had our safety in mind.

    They gave us a quick briefing and showed us the fish we were going to see, we then got our flippers, snorkel and wetsuit and headed for the beach. It was an amazing experience where we saw more than 20 species of fish including Octopus, puffer fish, sea cucumber and spider crabs. Beautifully clear water and wasn’t too cold.

    An excellent experience. The value for money is perfect. The guide is very nice and very attentive to us. Nevertheless two small flats: The activity does not last three hours but two hours with the explanations. It is stated on the ad that there is fruit at the end but there is none.
