I can’t spell this out any clearer. This is an absolutely brilliant trip. The boat ride to the stop was fun especially with the drinks already flowing at 10.00. The staff were all very nice and the bay where we anchored was very pretty. Jetski was fun, snorkelling with the fish was amazing, and the speedboat ride although short was really good. On the way back we collected a saxophonist who then stayed the rest of the way. Really good trip and with the unlimited drinks, brilliant value also. Worth every penny.

Great tour on a small yacht. There were only 10 people on the boat and we felt like we were alone. Great alternative for trips full of people where you have to fight for the seat on the deck. We can highly recommend it.

This was a wonderful excursion. We literally got everything (insane views, guided tour, beautiful boat cruise and water sports) in one booking. The fantastic crew were a big bonus!

The trip exceeded my expectations and my family and I had an amazing time !!!!

Good tempo and nice tour, proffesional and chill guide
