I can’t spell this out any clearer. This is an absolutely brilliant trip. The boat ride to the stop was fun especially with the drinks already flowing at 10.00. The staff were all very nice and the bay where we anchored was very pretty. Jetski was fun, snorkelling with the fish was amazing, and the speedboat ride although short was really good. On the way back we collected a saxophonist who then stayed the rest of the way. Really good trip and with the unlimited drinks, brilliant value also. Worth every penny.

Great day, crew were great. seen Dolphins!! was not aware a swim stop was going to happen though so take swim stuff and a towel.

Perfect trip with a fun crew. Our daughter had birthday that day and there were very kind to do something special for her.
