The guide gave a very incomplete tour, drank, smoked and if it weren't for the 30 minute stop on the island it wouldn't have been worth it. I don't give less because the initial staff was very friendly.

Good experience! Not quite what we expected, but nice trip. The guide was not the best for English ...

Nice boat trip with many stops, good guide and charming captain.

Charming boat and captain, with good English speaking giude took us around to islands off Olhau. Sun, sandy beaches, and two communities, the last charming community built on sand with little weird aunts and some uncles who made their way onto the concrete streets. Fun and warm.
