Just genius! Anyone who likes to be on the water and has never been able to ride a cat should definitely book this tour. The team was extremely friendly and, if requested, even let individual participants stand behind the wheel and drive a bit themselves. A very special excursion - gliding silently over the sea and simply enjoying the sun and the view of the coast. There was time to swim or try the stand up paddle. A big thank you!

Amazing experience from start to finish. the staff were so friendly and welcoming. we however, did not get into the caves but this was due to high and dangerous waves on the shoreline. we were taken to a nice spot for swimming, paddle boarding and snorkeling. The boat had a bar on board and snacks and soft drinks available, all at very reasonable prices. Would highly recommend

Book this cruise!!! The kindest staff, the most beautiful views, and the most fun along the way. This was an unexpected highlight of our vacation. Glad we chose this over the cave tours, it definitely had the relaxing vibes we were looking for.

Best experience ever, friendly staff! Nibbles and drinks on board, saw the wonderful caves got to go for a swim in the sea and saw dolphins would 100% recommend! Thank you!

Very well-organised trip, made special by encountering a pod of dolphins and causing along with them for ten minutes. Memorable!
