Hi, I'm Armando half brazilian&half swiss .I've been in and loving Malta for the last 3 years. I've always had a passion for acquatic activities; Surfing, Paddle boarding, , freediving and snorkeling. As much as I enjoy all water sports I enjoy them so much more when I am able to share them with others. Opening their eyes to the beauty and action of water adventures is the greatest feeling ever.

If anyone reads this comment, I personally highly recommend this activity. Armando responds very quick and takes care of you and your interest. He brought me to several places that I really wanted to visit and we did amazing paddling and snorkeling in a picturesque part of the island. I even wanted to have a paddling in the future haha. Good luck, Armando for this amazing activity.

Had an amazing experience with Armando. He was concerned about the sea being cold so he went out of his way to bring us wetsuits. He was a great teacher and an excellent photographer. We loved the Paddle boarding and snorkelling and the location was exquisite.

Armando was really flexible, professional and kind. He was able very thoughtful and patient. The weather started off as pleasant, but when it took a turn, his reaction to the situation was quick, smart and considerate. The experience was worth it even if I the weather didn't let me enjoy it completely. I had neither done SUP boarding nor snorkeling before however, this trip taught me how I to do both and I feel confident about doing it again!! Definitely should be on an adventurer's to-do list with Armando when visiting Malta.

It was a great experience with Armando who is a very nice guy. He took us to a couple beautiful places in Malta that I wouldn’t have seen otherwise. He even offered the option to move the experience up a day in order to accommodate the weather.

Great trip. The weather conditions were not ideal (it was a tad too windy) but Armando came up with a plan of action for us to to still be able to paddle board. The conditions deteriorated a little further towards the end of the trip and Armando made sure myself and the other guest were safe by bringing us to shore early and coming to fetch us on foot. The snorkelling was also great and Armando was very knowledgeable about what we could see and where to go. Armando also provided water and a snack, which was very welcome. Thanks a lot, hope to see you again!
