The trip was very nice and the guide was very caring towards his guests. Unfortunately we got caught in heavy rain, so just a little tip: the guests on the other speedboats were given raincoats, which you should take with you on the ship as a precaution. Otherwise, highly recommended

Aki and Baki were amazing captain and skipper, very prepared and told us so many stories of the places we were visiting. Be careful of taking a wind jacket!
