I’m so glad I thought of availing of this activity while waiting for my flight at the airport. The process was so convenient and hasslefree, with the very polite and professional uniformed staff helping me with my luggage and even getting me “fast-tracked” where normally I would have waited and stood in line. Highly recommended!

Brilliant activity to do. You get more than what you pay for. You have ample time to try out all the activities offered like kayaking, snorkeling, paddle boarding. There was also live music being played which is a nice touch to the experience.

The whole tour was going easy and smooth , with the greatest pilot , in addition to her fabulous knowledge .

It was a great sailing. Listening guitar music, enjoying small boat, and great sunset.

Everything went smoothly. Thank you for the quality service.
