Great multifaceted experience with excellent and cheerful professional kayaking guides. Paddling in warm turquoise water was a new experience for me, and I just loved it, being used to the much colder St-Lawrence River in Quebec Canada. Certainly to be repeated! Our kayaking guides, Carlos and Hugo were very keen on providing us with a cheerful and secure environment at... More

We did the Espiritu Santo circumnavigation in early November 2016. Our guide Miguel was fantastic and really knowledgeable about every bird, fish, invertebrate, cloud and rock that we encountered. We also loved assistant guide Benjamin. Our cook Martin prepared fabulous meals and happily accommodated some special diets (vegetarian and gluten free). Our boat captain Chuy kept us safe and got...

Once you find them, which is pretty easy, they offer a variety of packages that will accommodate your adventure outing. Ours took us snorkeling and kayaking to Isla Espiritu. Ben, our guide was a very knowledgeable and fun guide. The staff was helpful..spoke english well and their equipment was quality. Our captain of the boat was very accommodating and proficient.

I have repeated the Island Hopper trip for many years. While it is the same title to the trip, it is always a variety for different experiences. The guides continue to excel, and the excursions always vary. Activities are often determined by wind, weather..... and group discussion. Any way you look at it, this is a superb trip, and I...
