Rodrigo and the team were excellent. The cruise was relaxing and the barbecue was really tasty. The secluded beach was ideal with lots of room and umbrellas for everyone. They really made us feel welcome and ensured we had plenty to eat and drink. Nothing was too big or too small. Thank you all so much for an amazing experience.

Highly recommend this boat trip. We had the best day as a party of 10. Boat staff were lots of fun and very accommodating. The BBQ food was lovely and vegetarians well catered for. We were lucky to see dolphins on our way home and the crew drove over to them, really made our day!

The guys on the boat were really friendly and very approachable and fun. Couple of negatives- 1) we were told to arrive at 945am but didn’t get on the boat until 1030. 2) it was absolutely freezing on the boat. Miserably cold. If you do this trip you must dress warm and be prepared to get damp! Food was great but be warmed - no toilet during the bbq! Lovely trip would have been made better with more attention to details and warmer clothes!
