Perfect for August 15th

We arrived around 10:30 am and went to the meeting point described in the activity. The reception told us where to wait for our captain ... who luckily caught up with us in a queue (in a little bit of stress seeing no one arriving, we had put ourselves in the queue for the collective boat)! The boat intended for us was huge and only reserved for the two of us. We called the captain by phone and he arrived about 10 minutes later. We paid 200 euros for the day.

Awesome !

Very well indicated meeting point. The manager was waiting for us right outside. The guide responsible for driving us to the islands was very pleasant. He always arrived within 5 minutes after we called him to pick us up. Much more convenient than the ferry. It was a great experience. Thank you !

Excellente compagnie. Accueillis dès le parking pour être dirigés vers le bon bateau. Heure de départ au choix. Extra ! Jamais attendu sur les sites de prise en charge. Personnel aimable. On a tout apprécié.
