It was an amazing experience that lead to a great and relaxing day. The boat, the views and stops were amazing, had good atmosphere. The guide was multilingual but it was hard to understand what is being said and the mix of 5 languages, tho amazing feature, but it was overwhelming and hard to understand. Some stops could have been shorter/longer but they all had their own charm. Bar and food on board was reasonably priced, the lunch option was nice but seemed not worth 10 euro price point.

The stop at Spargi was amazing and definitely worth it. The next stops weren't great. At Santa Maria the guide suggested we could hike but we decided not to complete it and just stay in the water. Couldn't see the pink in the pink beach stop. We took pasta on the on the boat and it wasn't great. The price was reasonable. The entire trip cost is also reasonable.

excellent! The boat is medium in size. we were not in the busiest. the team was really great full of humor. the prices in the boat are very reasonable (the same as on land. count 3 euros for an extreme or magnum type ice cream) the pasta is cooked on site and good (and there is even extra!). in short, a very good excursion for those who would like to see the islands without being able to go there by car or stay there!
