It is important that you still need a ticket for the cable car to the tropical garden in order to be able to take the cable car here. And that costs another 12.50 euros per person

Very personable guide and nice easy introduction to sea kayaking and snorkeling. Water was very clean and clear with many fish species visible.

Unique experience on a 500 years old 1:1 replica ship! You can't have this experience anywhere else. I highly recommend!

We waren meteen bij de opening gegaan. Het was rustig en wij hebben ervan genoten. Nadien een Bica gedronken.

10/10 experience guide was brilliant and informative and catered for all levels
