The vessel is equipped with comfortable seats, where you can sit both in the shade and in the sun.

Great trip, you can bring water but you need to buy other drinks, including alcohol. Snorkelling equipment is there to be used for free against an ID. Most of the time is spent sailing around the islands with descriptions mostly in Spanish (a few in English) and you have two stops for swimming / snorkelling of about an hour each. Not much fish to see but a wonderful experience anyway. The crew is great too and very kind!

Boat was really nice, the food was good, and swimming near the islands was beautiful. There are things in the water that do sting though! We also didn’t get enough swimming chill time but the ride out and back was great. The boat turned into a party where we drank and danced all day.

It was fun and relaxing, and the chairs where comfortable. I would get there a little before 8:00 to line up so you can have first choice of seating. Really like the salad bar that went with lunch. Nice Fredy veg. They need to plan a little better as I was near the end of the lunch line and they ran out of the pasta salad at that the salad bar. But other wise a great day. Highly recommend.
