No muy bueno

We weren't sure what to expect but this was a wonderful boat ride. Not choppy at all (though we had nice weather) and the catamaran maneuvers beautifully to give all sides of the boat a great view of the islands and sites. The scenery was gorgeous and a nice break from all the active excursions!

The ride in modern boats was pleasant. Service on board very friendly. Sufficient seats available. Only the English commentary has gone down a bit, especially since you couldn't hear anything from the outside area. But the trip is worth it in any weather. There were photographers on board who took pictures of the passengers in front of the highlights and then sold their pictures as souvenirs.

we sail in a comfortable and modern catamaran. The seats are distributed next to large tables, where you can consume what you buy at the bar (very complete). The bathrooms very clean. The route is beautiful: the landscapes, the fauna that can be seen from the boat but at a short distance.
