Explora has organised a great package for 6 days kitesurfing in Essaouira for me. The price was good, the hotel excellent and the kite lessons just what I needed with a great instructor on good recent kit. And it does not stop there : the whole team was really friendly and helpful and went out of their way to create a wonderful experience full of local flavour

For our family of four (two parents and two young adults) we could not have asked for more from explora in Essaouira. We all had one days surfing plus kite surfing over a couple of days. The instructors were fun and very capable with good attention to safety. All equipment was supplied so all that is needed is Sunscreen (and a hat /sunglasses if starting kite surfing). There is a small, clean changing room and WC on site. When an existing injury that my daughter had became infected, explora staff took charge and drove us to a local pharmacy to get medical treatment that was definitely needed. They also arranged quad biking, horse riding and car hire with local providers, all were good value and well organised. The beach at Essaouira is a fantastic centre for an active holiday. The surfing is better for beginners than experienced surfers, but this is a great place to kite surf with a steady wind and safe conditions in the bay. Camels, quad bikes and Arabian stallions along with a variety of good beach cafés add interest to the experience. Thank you all at Explora for your help and good company.

We travelled to Essaouira as a group of 4 adults and 5 children aged 6-11. We spent 4 amazing days surfing with the expert help of Momo who was great with the kids and adults alike. Momo's tuition was fun, clear and simple and enabled us to progress to standing within the first session. The conditions are great for beginners and shallow enough for the youngsters to feel safe. Explora were very welcoming, helpful and flexible. From our early email enquiries with Sara to the face-to-face help at the Explora base, the service was always friendly and top notch.
Explora were really flexible; as we were never sure how many of us would want to surf each day, we were able to book a session with Momo and he'd help whoever showed up.
The boards and suits are well looked after and the whole set up was friendly and inspiring - never intimidating.
I think we've all left a piece of our soul in Essaouira and will most definitely be back. See you all soon Explora!
