We recently undertook both the kayaking and sand boarding adventures. What a great experience! The kids enjoyed paddling along the mangroves, and riding boards down the sand dunes. They also enjoyed learning about local indigenous culture of the Island. Great guide, and highly recommended.

Recently I booked sandboarding for my nephews, aged 12 and 14 who came for a visit from Spain. They had a great time and were able to stand on the board. The different language was not a problem for Mark and for them. Highly recommendable!!!!
