Very beautiful and spacious catamaran with space for 200 people! Luckily there were only about 30 people on board so plenty of space for everyone. We sailed to the Rosario Island and got some lovely views of the coast. The snorkelling stop was a good opportunity for a swim but not very much to see under the water... Lunch was very well catered, delicious seafood paella with some fresh fruit and salad.

Great day trip. Well organised, staff were super friendly, the boat itself was really nice and modern & the lunch served was fantastic - way better than expected (had a fruit and salad platter on top of the chicken, seafood or veggie rice). Good vibe with music playing on the boat too. A day well spent.

This was a lovely experience!! I wish the cruise lasted longer, maybe sailed out a little further. It was relaxing, the music was great, the food and drinks delicious!! The bathrooms are GROSS and VERY SMALL!!! That is the only drawback.

Great trip…everything was perfect! Great lunch. Friendly staff. Nice boat with great music and drinks. We had a wonderful time

AMAZING!! The staff was so great the islands and boat were beautiful. the food was delicious, and the drinks were bomb.
