Nice outing however poor organization, despite a reservation and payment 2 months in advance, they had not taken the children into account, so there were too many people on the boat. We had to prove via our bank account that we had indeed paid for 4 and insisted on being able to get on the boat after 30 minutes of discussion. Inadmissible behavior of the organizer.
