Beautiful experience, impeccable organization both to and from the hotel and in travel. Special mention goes to our guide named Natty who managed to make this day beautiful and fun but culturally interesting at the same time. The team was professional and always attentive to the needs of the participants, from drinks on board to mats for the beach. I would say that recommending them is the minimum!

Absolutely lovely!! The fact that they come and pick you up and drop you off after the activity is a plus. The overall activity was great, and the sunset was amazing. The dinner was okay, a bit cold but fine!

It was a great experience, our guide Sith & Whip were awesome & help & guide us in every way. People on the boat was super nice. Everything was nicely planned.

I love this tour and the team was lovely, very friendly and nice with us. I am now taking another trip with this amazing team Go Sea Eagle Tour

Very good organization, the guy who led us was funny and gave the information we wanted to know. Such a trip is worth experiencing
