Before and while boarding we were a little hesitant because we had to walk on a fairly narrow path above the water to the pier and it was many more people than we expected with the consequence that we did not find regular seating when on board. However, we then actually got the best seats on the front deck with a great view! The guys mixed a great Mojito - the open bar offered several other drink options - and we had a very good time enjoying the ride on the water, the view to the coast and the swimming in the afternoon light at very nice temperatures of a late October afternoon. We returned happily to the marina about 17:15, so slightly later than scheduled and can only recommend such afternoon excursion with a friendly crew.

It was great, great vibes, great views, cocktails were decent ! Only thing I wished was better was the music they played on board. Very relaxing tour overall tho.

Very pleasant cruise. The boat is spacious, the staff friendly, the drinks and meals are good. The music gives a festive atmosphere. I recommend !

Brilliant atmosphere, great music, delicious food and drinks. Would recommend

Really fun experience, although wasn’t offered to do the snorkelling..
