Love it! The boat is beautiful. A lot of places to lay and feel the breeze as you sail across the sea. Very good size boat for the number of people on it. We had about 20. The captains were great. Very friendly and funny. The swimming stops were fun. Especially the volcanic hot spring. The food was very good. Chicken was a tad dry but everything else (oven baked potatoes and veg, salad and pasta) were amazing. Unfortunately it was cloudy so we didn't get a good sunset but the experience was so much fun. Thank you!

Amazing experience! Beautiful sunset and delicious food, staff were very attentive. Provided everyone with towels and often topped up glasses. Met some lovely people on board and there was only 20 people roughly max so it did not feel overcrowded. Only had around 20 minutes in each swim spot which could have been slightly longer but aside from that I would definitely recommend!

My favorite part of the activity was the tour guides, they made it super fun and easy going! Nolan was especially great at leading us and had such an infectious smile!

Very well organised and a fantastic experience. George was brilliant and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend!

Really enjoyed it, amazing crew, great fun and felt very safe!
