The Samara Adventure Company took us on a surfing lesson. We had a blast! They were very well trained in communicating the safety requirements and looked out for my 7 year old perfectly during the rising tide. We all got up on the boards with their help and had a great time!

The people in the office in Playa Samara were friendly, really knew what the trips involved and were helpful in planning the trips. The guides picked us up exactly at the time they said at our...

I can't say enough about this excursion company. We booked a boat trip to see the dolphins and do some snorkeling. When we got there, there was a bit of a mix up and the captain was not available......HOWEVER, this tour company was great. They went over and beyond to get us on the next tour and compensated us without... More

We had a great morning - we booked on a dolphin and snorkeling tour for us and our two kids (7 & 9). Our guide (whose name I can't quite remember - Jiall?) was lovely and informative and made a real effort with the kids which was great. And the captain (George?) was lovely as well. Unfortunately no dolphins were... More

We booked a kayaking/snorkeling tour and had a fantastic time. Our guide Alex was extremely knowledgable about the turtles and all the fish that we saw, as well as speaking fluent English. We saw 3 of the 4 species of turtles that live on the Pacific side and innumerable colorful fish. Alex took lots of great photos above and below... More
