Nice day tour. The crew was very friendly and accommodating. There were nice cold drinks on board. The meal was okay. The islands were also very beautiful. On the two islands, where you can't do too much, you had less time to stay than on the last island with a beautiful sandy beach. We found the times to be just right and would recommend the tour to anyone who wants to escape from the tourist hotspot of the old town.

Superbe journée avec une equipe de pros dont une guide qui vous propose une visite sur les 3 îles si vous le souhaitez. A bord, bon repas, musique. A chaque arrêt il est possible de nager, visiter et éventuellement se restaurer.

Excellent trip well organised great service and beautiful islands We got picked up from the hotel well worth doing and transported back can’t fault this company it was seamless

Exactly as advertised - nothing fabcy, but a fun trip to the islands.
