We had a really nice evening with an lovely group. The guide Socrates was awesome! We booked the trip for another day but he informed us in advance that it’ll be very windy and rescheduled us for the day after. First he explained us how to use the SUPs. We could sit or stand, however we wanted. Then we paddled to the little haven and tried to get a feeling to the board. We could actually stand, that was a good feeling because it was the first time for us. We also fell a few times but that didn’t matter, you can get easily back on the board. Then we paddled to the Island Lazaretta and snorkeled quite a time before the sun sets. After that we climbed on the rocks of that said island and Socrates told us many facts. That was very interesting. He made pictures of us in front of the sunset. At last we paddled back to the beach where we started and he made videos of us paddling in front of the sunset. We got the pictures and videos the same evening. We had a blast. Thank you Socrates!

the church plaque was too faded to read. we could not find a close up view in Google to use. we tried for ages but couldn't work it out so ended up having to skip that one.
