A great way to see the Alicante coastline. Skipper and crew very helpful and happy. Nice to meet other travellers who all want a good time. Swimming from the boat was fun and the refreshments and snacks on board were fresh and affordable.

Lovely. Could have been another hour at least with how great it was. Shade for people who don’t want the sun and netting for people who want to lie out on the water. Wonderful experience
