I can high recommend the trip! You will see the most beautiful small villages and turquoise water. The crew is so nice and friendly and fun. I traveled alone and I am so glad I decided to book this boat, I felt welcomed and had some nice chat with the captain and crew member. Sadly at this day we couldn’t spot dolphins but it was still such a nice trip. 10/10 I’ll be back as soon as possible :)

The crew was super nice and made a great effort that everybody had the best experience! We rescheduled on a very short notice and it wasn’t a problem at all! The food was great and they even offered snack in between. Overall an amazing experience that I highly recommend!

This is a fab day out, value for money with a great vibe, lovely lunch and fantastic crew...honestly for the money you cannot go wrong
