Definitely book the excursion !! We recommend! The trip got off to a great start when the lady from the company's information booth took me to the port, to the boat's drop-off point, and then returned ... very customer-oriented. When the boat returned from the previous excursion, we new guests were only allowed on the boat when the seats were sprayed on and wiped off. With regard to Corona, the cleanliness makes a good impression. We saw everything, exactly as in the description of the excursion. Great atmosphere due to the small dinghy, you could touch the water if you wanted, no comparison to the big boats. I would book the excursion again at any time !! Thanks for the great day @alcudiaseaexplorer
