Meet Some Satisfied Clients

We had a great time kayaking to Ilsa Choro in the bay of Samara. Once there we did snorkling and swam, viewed iguanas and hermit crabs and ate fresh fruits! The staff were super helpful, fun and informative. I would definitely go on another tour with them.

We kayaked from Playa Samara to Isla Chora with our guide, Brendan. It was a wonderful experience. We felt very safe and Brendan was extremely knowledgeable about the area and had a good sense of humor. He snorkeled with us and provided a yummy fruit snack on the island. I highly recommend this tour!

“My mom and I enjoyed a nice morning kayaking to the island and snorkeling around the reefs!

Alfredo and his team were on time, professional and knew a lot about the local flora, fauna and even things to do during our trip (surf, yoga, things to do etc.).”
