This was such an amazing trip!!! I’d booked as a birthday present for my boyfriend, and at first we were a little nervous as we had booked for October but the weather was perfect. All three locations to swim in were beautiful too. We were given a snack about an hour into the journey which was greatly appreciated and our drinks were constantly kept full. The lunch was delicious and filled us up after a day of swimming and snorkelling. On our way back to the harbour the crew played us lots of music so we could dance and everyone on the boat was super friendly. If you’re deciding to book this trip then this is your sign to do it !!! We made so many friends on the boat and still keep in touch despite coming home off holiday, the crew were AMAZING and we had the best time. 100% would do this again thank you so much!

This was truly a memorable day out. The boat creates a great atmosphere and the crew are helpful and add greatly to the experience. The locations are beautiful for swimming and snorkeling and the food and drink provided was superb.

The crew, the homemade food, the drinks were great. Extra requests were asked, the crew does not have any artificial customer behavior. There were 10 of us and I think the group is the ideal size for up to 16 people.

That was really a little adventure, away from tourism and into nature. Great, totally recommended. Absolutely accept the offers against the dust.

Great day wonderful sites fresh food simple but delicious drinks all in the good mood of the crew ... without hesitation to recommend
