A very nice trip with a super cool crew! We saw dolphins, whales and sea turtles. The crew was very attentive. We stopped at nice swimming spots and were able to watch the fish while snorkeling. At lunchtime there was an incredibly good barbecue; with chicken, fish and lobster. We have never eaten such good grilled lobster! Plus lots of side dishes and a delicious dessert! Unfortunately, the island of Benetiers was of little interest. Hundreds of souvenir stalls and many tourists. The sea there is unfortunately only max knee deep and not suitable for swimming. We could have saved ourselves that. But apart from that, it was a wonderful trip that we can absolutely recommend!

The boat ride, the snorkeling, the food, the whale sighting - all just perfect! Beautiful 6 hours! Only the island of Benetiers was too commercial for us and we didn't like it! But we had 30 minutes more for snorkeling and swimming! We would do the trip again in a heartbeat!
