    I loved it, it was a lot of fun, the route was very nice, the guides were very friendly. It stops at the return of the route on a beach, to bathe a little, (they give you a small snack: water, juice and sweets typical of the area). We were lucky and saw a dolphin… they offer you a waterproof backpack for your personal belongings. I would repeat.

    The kayaking was nice and intensive because of the wind on the way to the beach. On the beach there is some time to take a break to eat and drink something and possibly swim. We had a tailwind on the way back and enjoyed it until the very end. On the last part there was a lot of wind which made kayaking very difficult. We didn't know how to handle this very well and we were blown too far out to sea which was a bit scary because we didn't know how to handle the wind. In the end, the instructor helped us a lot by giving us tips on how to do it so that everything went well in the end. An excellent experienced guide!
