It was an unforgettable experience. The swim stop was awesome in a beautiful bay with turquoise blue water that couldn't have been reached from land. You could also borrow snorkels and diving goggles. Afterwards there was a delicious lunch in the form of a tasty tuna salad, individually wrapped and a free drink. Can recommend it unreservedly.

Great experience, staff nice and professional, the swimming stop was amazing, beautiful landscape, the time was enough to swim. the only thing that could be better to somehow avoid that before the boarding when waiting in the line to stand a long time directly under the sun. Except that everything was perfect, money well spent

Crew was wonderful. Ride to and from one swimming spot was an hour and an half. Lunch provided was perfect for a ride with choppy waves. Crew did wonderful with covid protocol and sick passengers. Swimming was about an hour in a cove. Really beautiful water. Crew came throughout trip asking if passengers were okay. Equipment for snorkeling provided was in working order. One improvement for order is to have better organization with vouchers, tickets, and covid forms for Port Authority. Perhaps have meeting point at kiosk in front of harbor to keep passengers out of sunlight.
