Excellent discovery. The city is beautiful, the cruise very good and the crew very friendly! We even had the chance to see a whale! Attention, remember to take something to occupy you during the return trip by boat which is a little long (book, telephone)
Great experience Very nice way to join bonificio. Very beautiful landscape to discover the time of the crossing Time in Bonifacio sufficient to make the urinary of the card of the tourist office.
Spectacular view! Return a bit long and very windy so a lot of waves but we cannot know in advance. Too bad we can't hear the guide's comments well inside the boat because of the engine.
We were placed on another date due to weather conditions. Serious boat company and very professional crew. A bit long but pleasant crossing. Recommended for a day of escape.
Boat trip a little long otherwise great view from the boat to take pictures of bonifacio and little train included in the ticket for access to the top of the village
