We did the 5.5 hours trip Roses to Cap Creus. Every moment enjoyable. Great fun day out. Brilliant views. Crew fantastic, food tasty, a lots of soft drinks or sangria served with the meal included in the price. Enough time to swim and eat on board. Music was good, low key party feel but def not a booze cruise, no forced fun. Very inclusive, enjoyable for all the members of our family - Mum, Dad and teen. Highly recommend

We left Rosas to go to Cadaques, where we stayed 1h30 long enough to walk around, on the way there we saw the creeks, someone explained what we see in French and Spanish. The boat is large and well maintained. There is a stopover in the city before Cadaques, the whole excursion lasts 3h30 for 22€ per person.

everything as planned, nice boat ride to Cadaqués, pleasant boat staff. no complaints... he met established schedules, explanations of what you see on the route in several languages
