Did the shark watching tour with my partner. We were expecting to see much less sharks but actually was really easy to see lots of baby sharks around your legs. Ana answered to all our questions and made a briefing of the types of sharks that you can find in the area. She was the best person to have the tour with as she is a marine biologist and an ecologic activist! Lovely experience, recommended also for kids. We didn’t bring extra cash for the trip and we regretted after it as you can also get a Zuga tshirt to support kids scholarships. Also you can buy things from the locals near by the coast.

We had a private Sal Island tour with Ana today. And what can we say; it was amazing! A full day packed with all the highlights the island has to offer. On the way to our first stop, Shark Bay, Ana gave us plenty of interesting facts about the sharks, the island and the local ecosystem. We then went over to Salinas de Lume for a floating experience in a volcanic crater and after that we discovered the 'blue eye'. Ana had everything perfectly planned so that the whole time it felt like it was just us exploring the island: a perfect private tour. Next was lunch at a local restaurant in Palmeira. Ana made the perfect recommendation for us and afterwards we went for a little stroll through the streets. We even managed to watch the local fishermen with their daily catch which was what we had for lunch. We then stopped at the espargos lookout to get a nice overview over the island. Our last stop was bay of the murdeira for coastal snorkeling. We saw a lot of different species and Ana made sure to stop and explain everything we saw. Ana is an amazing guide and very passionate about the work she does. She is not only a great marine biologist but also very committed to the local community. She gave us a nice tip for some cape verdian souvenirs which she knows are made locally.

As soon as we were picked up we had a presentation on the sharks that can be found around the island, their lifecycle and what they eat. During the walking with sharks tour Ana took underwater video and emailed it to us free of charge. She also sells shirts and all proceeds go to a charity for the education of the islands children. A great tour with a brilliant marine biologist, must book a tour with Ana.

We did the full day tour around the island with Zugadventures and absolutely loved it. Incredibly professional and informative. If you are looking for a more personalized tour of the island, this is the one. Highly reccomend!
