An absolute blast! The company checked in with us the day before to obtain our lunch orders, and helped us navigate our way to the pickup spot (we stayed in an air b&b so it wasn’t available for pickup, but the pickup spot was only a 3 minute walk). Once we got on the boat, they immediately greeted us, double checked our orders, and offered us beverages. The open bar was definitely my favorite, their homemade red wine was devine. Then we went to the first island, which was gorgeous, they clearly stated when to be back on the boat for lunch. Lunch was amazing, I had the chicken and it had so much flavor, and a decent sized portion. On the way to the second island there was a massive flock of seagulls and one of the guys held out a plate which created a very memorable experience. The last two islands we only had an hour each but was plenty enough for us. Overall, we had an amazing experience, the staff was so nice and created such a fun experience! For the price, it was 100/10!

It was a wonderfull trip organized by a professional and friendly team! It is really worth to make this trip, you will collect unforgetible experiences! They arranged transport from the hotel, a GoPro, snorkeling kits and drinks. Thanks for this perfect day!
