Extraordinary experience, of which they are not forgotten. The atmosphere of the group helped a lot. We fit in very well with each other and with Maria José, who showed a deep knowledge of the sea and transmitted her enormous love to us. I encourage other people to do this activity, they will not be disappointed.
