Journée extraordinaire, grotte bleue magnifique, skipper et guide très sympa. Bon timing de visite des 3 îles. Lieux sublimes. On a même vu des dauphins proche de nous le matin! Très joli souvenir en famille.

Great tour, beautiful islands and lagoons. The speedboat gets really cold but the borrowed wind jackets solved the problem. Mia and Neno were great guides!

It was a lovely day out on the sea! Mia and Stipe were great guides. There was a lot to see on the islands and the speedy boat ride was great fun!

Perfect, one of my highlights of my trip. Worth every penny!!
