We had to postpone for 3 consecutive days due to unfavorable weather/sea conditions. But - wow! - it was really worth reorganizing part of the trip to take part in this dinghy tour!!! The coast is splendid, the skipper takes you to cross inlets, admire caves, goes around the rocks, recalls the main attractions of the area and offers stops for swimming in two truly splendid points.
