We will then organize your transfer from/to the bus stations in Agadir to/from our camp. In case you are interested in being picked up at Marrakesh airport, we are happy to offer this extra service, however, this is not included in the price of our packages.
Most of the stays are from Saturday to Saturday. However, depending on the availability and the flights, we could organize your arrival or departure another day of the week. Regarding schedules, check-in rooms are from 2:00PM and check-out until 10:00AM. Depending on your arrival / departure time, you can leave your stuff at the surf camp until your room is ready or before you leave. Taxi transfers can be arranged at any time of the day or night.
