I have been coming to Marbella for many years now and Otto, our very sweet, enthusiastic guide, managed to show us things that we had not known or seen before. During the tour we made 3 stops at authentic Spanish tapas places and ate their specialties there. Thanks again Otto for your fantastic tour!

Frequently asked questions

  • What is the minimum age requirement for participants?
    We maintain a minimum age of 8 years old for participants, as younger children may find the activity challenging and have difficulties with keeping up with the speed of the group. While we generally adhere to this age guideline, we recognize some younger children might be well-equipped for the experience. If your child can confidently traverse rocky terrains and swim independently, even if slightly below our age recommendation, please reach out to us via WhatsApp or email. We're open to considering exceptions on a case-by-case basis.
  • Are there any medical conditions that would prevent me from participating?
    Participants must be mobile and able to manoeuvre themselves through rocky areas while using their hands and feet. Besides this, participants need to be able to swim independently. It is important to inform us prior to the activity of any relevant medical conditions that might affect the tour. Please note that participating in our tours is always at your own risk.
  • Why are you cheaper than other tour agencies?
    There is no major difference between our tours and the tours of other tour agencies. We provide the same safety equipment and follow exactly the same route in the canyon.

  • Do you use wetsuits?
    We offer wetsuits to our clients year-round. During the high season, wearing a wetsuit is not necessary due to the consistently warm water temperatures, and clients can choose whether or not to wear one. However, in the cooler months between October and June, we continue to provide wetsuits for our participants. We recommend following the guide's advice on whether or not to wear one, based on daily weather conditions and the time of year.
  • Is there free parking available at the meeting point?
    The meeting point is at a spacious, public parking space nearby the canyon. Please be aware that the area is unguarded, so it's advisable not to leave any valuables in sight in your vehicle. For added security, the guide can carry your car keys in a waterproof tube during the tour.
