What people are saying about Málaga

I can’t recommend the company enough! I went on a boat trip to watch the sunset in beautiful Málaga and it was 100% worth the money and time. The stuff is friendly and fun, they made the experience even better. Thanks Leo, Jesús, Carlos and Gustavo for the wonderful memories and looking forward to booking with them again soon!

The experience of going out into the sea in an open boat was indescribably amazing. The blue water of the Mediterranean sea and the sunset made it a very rich experience.

Efficient crew, punctual departure and return. Beautiful sunset, right on the spot. Highly recommended.

Excellent experience, whether for a couple or family

Was a nice Christmas afternoon Mediterranean cruise
