We went 2 people on the Island Tour. It was na 8 hour experience that included all you could imagine. The experience was far beyond our expectations and to a more than fair price. Higly recommended from here

Review of: Shark Experience
The tour is not the lonbgest as you ar only away from your hotel a couple of hours. Our Guide (Manu- Sorry buddy if i have spelt that wrong) was knowledgable and very pleasent with a great sense of humour. You are advised to hire (£2) a pair of rubber shoes to go into the water. I advise to do it as it can be a bit slippery. All in all, a great couple of hours out.

Review of: Seadoo Safari
I decided to try the Seadoo Safari with one of my friends and we honestly had a blast!! It was such a cool experience and we got to see so many interesting things. Our guide was amazing, he was super nice and super helpful. It was a small group, just my friend and I and two other people, which was very nice since the guide was able to explain us everything very well and it was more personal. 100% recommend this tour.

The Seadoo Safari excursion is an amazing excursion on the island and exclusive to Explore Cape Verde. I am so happy you reviewed this excursion and also that you had a great time. I agree you do get to see the amazing underwater world of Sal in a relaxed way, snorkeling made easy!!! Thank you for choosing Explore Cape Verde and we hope to see you again in the future.

Review of: Shark Experience
What a great trip with Nadine a marine biologist, who cared so much about the welfare of all the creatures in the sea around Cape Verde. A morning or afternoon trip, your choice, we chose the morning. Easy pick up and then 20 mins or so and we were there. Waded upto mid thighs for adults but waist for children so a top needed and take dry clothes to change back into. Great to get close and personal with baby sharks and to see the larger ones a bit further back in the bay.

Thank you for this review and I will make sure Nadine reads this as she will be thrilled that you enjoyed your time with her and the sharks. She is so passionate about the sharks and the environment. It is amazing to get up close and personal with the sharks as you say. It's simply incredible. Thank you for choosing Explore Cape Verde.
