We got lucky as it was the last day of the season to access the blue cave. The trip was amazing and the speed boat experience was excellent for me ( i do not recommend if you have back problems). We got to see the daulphins and save a poor bird on our way as well. It s really worth every penny !

Great tour, beautiful islands and lagoons. The speedboat gets really cold but the borrowed wind jackets solved the problem. Mia and Neno were great guides!
