    Excellent trip! The guides were friendly and outgoing. The captain did an amazing job keeping us safe while showing us the excitement of the ocean ride and going into the caves. Expertise all around. We all clapped at the end so the entire group of strangers were united that we had a great experience! The beauty of the Cliffside villages, the deep blue and turqoise waters, the actual CLIFFS, rock formations, and CAVE are beyond mere words to describe. There was a feeling of awe and happiness just gazing at nature's gifts. Breathtaking! Thank you so much to everyone.

    Luiis (tour guide) and Andre (the boat captain) we’re simply awesome. The ride is total worth the money. The tour guide gives nice information for each and every stop. The captain has great skill to drive and keep the boat stable even when the choppy waves. They actually take the boat inside the caves which is a thrilling experience .Overall a very nice experience in the boat within the caves and on the sea.

    The young men operating the tour were friendly, professional and seemed to enjoy their work. The boat was safe and clean and life jackets were provided. They gave good explanations at the caves and along the route and were not rushing the experienced. I would definitely recommend the boat tour for an excellent experience.
