My husband and I travelled with 4 children aged 8, 10, 11 and 13 years. Jaime knows how to communicate well with children and they also found this trip very interesting.

Great experience. Group consisted of a small boat and 3 double jet skis. Very relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. The tour went quite far out to sea and we even saw pilot whales. Meanwhile, the crew member takes pictures on the boat, which can then be purchased for 15 euros. There was also a possibility for diving. At the end a drink was served. Highly recommended if you are looking for action!

Unfortunately, jetskiing was canceled for technical reasons. But we were able to repeat it a few days later as compensation we received a lot of photos and videos for free download. We even saw beluga whales! You can also take a shower on site.

The experience was incredible 100% 100 recommended !!! And the people there are super friendly and always attentive to everything so that nothing is missing !!!!

1h tour, very cool, they let you run with the motorcycle and enjoy the experience respecting the instructions of the instructor.

Great activity, 2 hours of jet skiing with snorkelling, we had the chance to see whales! I recommend
