“Awesome!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

We have recently returned from a trip to Sal, Cape Verde. Whilst there we visited C Riders located at the far end on Santa Maria beach. We had seen advertised on the island the hire of "seabobs" and decided these were a must to try, we weren't disappointed! For those of you who don't know, seabobs can only be described as personal torpedoes and propel you along the surface, but can also be used to take you under the water. Firstly we were given wetsuits to put on, then we were given brief but comprehensive tuition on how to operate the seabobs. I must point out that we were accompanied by Alex (the owner) at all times during our ride. His seabob has a large buoy attached to it so that we could be easily seen by speedboats etc. Alex took us to see a large statue that is positioned under the water just off of Santa Maria's beach, I am not going to tell you what the statue was of, go and have a look yourself! My friend John and I spent the rest of the time looking for fish so that we could return with our rods later on and catch lunch. Good job there are plenty of restaurants! Finally we must say a big thank you to Alex and his wife Monique for looking after us so well, providing us with water and an improvised shower afterwards. Looking forward to coming back to Sal and going on the whale watching trip, hopefully when there are Orcas around! Visiting C Riders while on Sal is a must, you will not to de disappointed.

“Best On Sal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

C-riders gave us an unforgettable experience! Whales, dolphins, flying fish and seabirds, we saw it all although our tour operator (TUI) said we would see nothing because it wasn't the right season! The entourage is very professional. Food, drinks, protective clothing were all included. The difference was certainly made by the fast boat (fastest of Sal!) and the knowledge of several languages.

“Perfect sea trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

C Riders provide the best option to see whales, dolphins and turtles. The boat is very clean, the crew is friendly, the captain is professional - what more can you ask for? They even treat you to sandwiches, water and fruit on this short trip. And, of course, no trip is scomplete without a soecial Captain's treat... Highly recommended.
