    Really worth seeing and worth the money. The catamaran was quite big, so the 72 guests didn't bother us. There were unlimited drinks and regular snacks or food. The viewpoint was amazing and the beach was wonderful even though it started raining. The subsequent opportunity to snorkel was also great. Everything was well organized and always explained well.

    The staff were really nice and friendly and although it was probably more of a young persons cruise as a family we were catered for and included. The views were incredible and lived up to expectations the only downside was the snorkelling was in deep open water so not really suitable for the small children and it was quite a rough sea that day as well.

    One of the best experiences ever done in the field of sea excursions! The staff is very nice and helpful, several snacks were served with many choices both in food and drinks (alcoholic and otherwise). Lunch included 3 different types of grilled meat, fresh shrimp, cold pasta, potatoes, salad, vegetables, sauces, bread. The atmosphere was pleasant and light for the entire duration of the excursion (departed 8.15, arrived 17.45). It is really worth it!
