I will rate it 6/5 if it were possible A great activity and a very good value for money (20 euros per hour of boat) to admire magnificent landscapes and a beautiful nature. On the other hand, to avoid if you have seasickness or if you do not like strong sensations because frankly it takes your breath away. A big thank you to Christophe our captain.

Bateau souple qui permet une grande maniabilité et donc une approche très fine des lieux visités. Le plus; humour et dérision dans les commentaires, ambiance « musicale » à bord qui rend cette croisière festive et surtout qui montre que le pilote prend vraiment du plaisir en plus de parfaitement maîtriser le pilotage de son bateau. Bref on recommande Marine Porto Evasion
