Turtle Walks

"Turtle Walks – so good we went twice!!!" – JeffWalters2017,

"Awesome, just awesome. Had the absolute privilege of attending last night’s Turtle Walk… our guide was incredibly informative, considerate and engaging. Ultimate respect shown for the turtles and their habitat… Sitting under the stars talking about what contribution we could make to help protect and conserve the world around us will stay with me for a long time" – Dianne Watts,


"We went on a Turtle Walk with Explore Cape Verde and well… wow, so impressive! The company works directly with conservation efforts on the island and are respectful of the wildlife which is a massive plus. We saw two adult turtles laying eggs and also some little babies hatching, making their way into the big wide world! What an amazing experience! So informative too. A very special experience"

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" – Claudia Quevedo,

"Great team, fantastic tours! We would thoroughly recommend the seadoos – so much fun and a great way to explore the waters... we would 100% book any tours again with this wonderful team – thank you for adding to our Cape Verde experience..."
Stephanie W,


"We had a blast on the seadoo snorkeling tour. It was our first time snorkeling and our guide was very patient, explaining the basics before adventuring into the reef with the seadoos… due to good care, patience and devotion of our guide and the whole crew, we had a fantastic morning in the coastal waters of Santa Maria, Sal, Cape Verde!" – Yves B,

Sal Island Tour


"We went 2 people on the Sal Island Tour. It was an 8 hour experience that included all you could imagine. The experience was far beyond our expectations and to a more than fair price. Highly recommended from here" – Jesper,


"Thank you team #Explorecapeverde for an informative and thoroughly enjoyable island tour. Beautiful places, great company, delicious food, fantastic photo opportunities, and what better way to end the day than watching the sun set with a cocktail?"

– Ruth North,

Historical Sal Tour

"We went on the Historical Sal excursion. It was a really interesting and fun morning and completely different to the other excursions offered on Sal. Full credit to Explore Cape Verde for taking the time to come up with a unique excursion that celebrates Sal’s fascinating history, music and culture. I especially loved looking at the old photos of Sal and visiting the museum, which we wouldn’t have known about otherwise" – Gail1294,

Bike and Hike

"Amazing tour – we enjoyed the ride, the birdwatching and scenery during the hike! We learned a lot about the island… we fully recommend this tour!" – Shayiru,

"A wonderful experience, amazing and satisfying once you've completed it" – Helen G,


"I’ve always wanted to go stargazing and I’m so happy we chose to go with Explore Cape Verde! We spent an awesome evening on the beach exploring the night sky, it was beautiful!!! Our guide was so informative and engaging. If you get the chance to go, then I would definitely recommend it!" – LisaM,

Guided Cycling

"Fantastic! We really enjoyed the Guided Cycling excursion. It's a great way to explore Santa Maria and get to see parts that you probably wouldn't see otherwise. Lovely photo opportunities. Our guide was really interesting and a wealth of knowledge about the local area. So glad we did it" – SusanJacob22,


"Fabulous experience with friendly, knowledgeable guides… We opted for a Birdwatching tour and were driven to a stunning location (in a comfortable 4x4) where the ospreys and tropic birds were numerous and the sunset was spectacular. Our guides were knowledgeable and passionate about the island wildlife, and great fun to spend time with – we even asked them back to our hotel at the end of the tour to join us for a beer!" – LCBLondon,

"Thanks for an amazing birding trip. To see the red-billed tropic birds and the many ospreys was fantastic. I strongly recommend other bird lovers to take part in your excursions"Bo Thysellis,
