For this half-day tour you’ll have a surfing instructor who can give you insider information about surfing in this area. To reach Witch’s Rock you’ll need to take a boat ride – it is much too far from the beaches to swim there. Your boat captain will be an experienced professional who speaks multiple languages, including English.
Depending on the size of your group, you'll take your tour on one of the three following boats:
Raccoon is the smallest of the boats, with a 25-foot (7.6 m) hull and a 200 horsepower engine. 5 passengers can comfortably fit on this boat, as well as fishing rods, surfboards, and the rest of the equipment. The seats are cushioned and the Racoon has a stereo system.
La Guapa has a 28-foot (8.5 m) hull and a 150 horsepower engine. It has cushioned bench seats and a stereo system. This boat can comfortably fit around 7 people.
La Charanga is also 28 feet (8.5 m) long, with a walk-around layout. There is a shaded area on the deck and a tower with a shaded seat for passengers that want to get a better look at the scenery. La Charanga also has a ladder to make it easy to get in and out of the water. You can listen to music on the stereo system, and rinse off using the onboard fresh water shower. This boat is ideal for a trip with up to 8 people.
