It was great, such an unique experience and we learn a lot too. The guides and captain were funny, knowledgeable and very helpful. Even if you can't swim, there're lifeguard vest on board that you can wear so you won't miss this one in a lifetime swim. The water is warm, so don't be afraid to go in the water. You should bring a towel, water shoes and your good mood!

Claude is a lovely man, and definitely added to this amazing trip! He even stopped off at atm so we could get cash and get food, nothing was too much to ask. We loved that he told us about spots along the way, what an amazing experience! Thank you Claude -Jamall and Becky
