Clients Testimonials

  • Erick Clark

    I´ve wrestled many whales on land, but with the assistance of the welcome center
    I had the opportunity to tangle with a real whale just off the beach
    Thank you John Musson and team!

  • Jack Gordon Smithi

    Contadora is my favourite location for a secluded romantic getaway. We hired a pair of kayaks from the Welcome Centre,
    visiting a deserted cove for snorkelling and a frolic in the crystal clear waters. Pulling our kayaks up onto the golden sands,
    we then repaired for lunch before making a complete circuit of the island where we were greeted by a smiling John Musson and a delicious ice-cream
    Thank you Welcome Centre for a perfect happy day.
