The boat is great, as is the guide! Please note, snorkels are not provided, only masks. The coves where the boat stops are great, despite the fact that the seabed is not very beautiful and very habitual. The water is turquoise and the landscapes magnificent.

It was an unforgettable and breathtaking time on the boat we rented. I recommend this experience to everyone. Despite a lack of English knowledge, the instructions were explained clearly and went quickly. The employees were also super friendly!
