Amazing and therapeutic
Hilary_D
, Nov 2021
The guide was friendly and really easy to get on with. We swam with the turtle for a good 30 minutes. It was an amazing experience and one I will never forget. We also saw dolphins. The guide was relaxed and the trip not rushed. The kayaking provided a quiet and more natural way to see the wildlife. Very good value for money. They were very clear that they could not guarantee seeing the e we wildlife but knew where to go. But the canoeing was fun.

I went on the trip alone. Offered single kayak or to double up with another solo traveller. Had a great day. Saw dolphins and a turtle. Was tired by the end. I am female in my late 50’s with average fitness. Would recommend.

Great way to spot marine wildlife, but maybe not for kayaking total beginners

Overall i think this is a great way to spot marine wildlife. However, kayaking in the ocean can be very demanding for beginners. Having no previous experience, I couldn’t really enjoy the trip nor spot animals because all the time I was concentrating on keeping up with the group. Some people said they saw dolphins but I didn’t see anything. I saw 2 turtles though which made the experience more memorable

We went for a 3h kayak trip. We loved it. Saw some dolphins, went snorkeling with a sea turtle. Very friendly and funny guide. Had a very good time. I was able to make some underwater videos. The guide also takes pictures and he sent them to us afterwards. We definitely recommend this activity!

Sun, sea, and suspicious turtles

Well well well, where do I even begin? We arrived 15 minutes early as per instruction, however this was useless as we didn’t even set off until 45 minutes later. When the instructor was giving the briefing, he spoke mainly in Spanish and only a little bit in English - despite him being fluent in both. We felt as though he missed out some vital information that we should’ve been aware of. It took an hour to kayak to our destination (turtle area) but he was racing ahead, leaving most of us behind. The activity states that you need a moderate fitness level, however this is most certainly an understatement (he said that we need to be strong to do this activity). Once we reached the turtle area, we jumped off the kayak with our snorkels and started to swim against the current which was very strong so it was difficult to swim. He, once again, raced ahead but kept telling us to “stick together because the turtles won’t wait for us”. Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse, we all got stung by jellyfish. This is my first time getting stung so I didn’t recognise the feeling until the one of the group members said that they got stung by jellyfish. The instructor immediately told us get back onto the kayaks asap and said that the sea was too dirty and it was too windy for the turtles to come out. The instructor didn’t seem very knowledgeable about the area and it seemed like he was winging it, in all honesty. We did see a few dolphins from afar but they seemed too big to be dolphins, come to think of it. We personally think that they were whales, and this made us uneasy as we are just in small kayaks waiting to be eaten. On the way back to the shore, the instructor kept claiming to see a turtle head bobbing up and down whilst no other member of the group could see it. I’m going to be blunt and call him a liar. My recently-tested eyes give me 20/20 vision and even I couldn’t see it so how does that one work out? Is he sure it wasn’t just a small wave? After a tiring, strenuous and, dare I say, depressing day at sea, he eventually emailed us the photographs from the trip. However, not all of the photos taken were sent to us. Considering this was included in the price, this was quite disappointing. But to be honest we weren’t arsed because I’d rather not have any memory of this traumatic experience, as I now have PTSD. For the whole rest of the day, I felt as though I was rocking back and forth on the wretched kayak - and for the rest of the holiday, I was too afraid to go in the sea in case a jellyfish tried to abuse me again.
