Customer Reviews

This was one of the most amazing water activities I have done.. The staff and Life guards were extremely helpful and made me feel very c comfortable throughout my journey as it was my first time embarking on such an activity. I enjoyed every moment of it , within the first second of being in the water the seals approached and it was an amazing experience being so close with these beautiful creatures. I would love to do it again in the near future. - Elgerea
