    Nos hizo un tiempo espectacular y la ruta fue muy bonita. Es una actividad muy recomendable para adultos y para ir con niños. El viaje es cómodo y te puedes mover por todo el barco sin problemas. En esta ocasión no pudimos ver delfines, fue una pena. La tripulación es encantadora. Lo recomiendo 100%
