What a fabulous day. If you want to while away 8 hours being on a boat can be enough. The crew where polite informative and helpful. Chatting with us to dispense necessary info and jovial interaction. I cannot rate the barbecue lunch highly enough and have to say was not my expectation. Lovely chicken and tuna fish with pasta and salad all cooked perfectly. Drinks where available on request water soft drinks and alcohol. I stuck to non alcoholic as I went snorkeling at the last island of the 3 we visited and that’s off the boat straight into the sea, another great experience. I didn’t go to the second island choose to just lay onboard and take in the day of which the weather was faultless. Altogether an excellent trip I would highly recommend. Take sunscreen and shade yourself a bit that’s the dad in me talking, your out for 8 hours. Thank you to the Skipper and crew of the Wind Dancer.

On the was to Go Out all Long warm Rainfall and some high waves please hey so WhatsApp is fun. Hangover in nice snorkeling spots in two islands. Inbetween nice lunch in the boat. Become only 15 people so enough space for everyone. We were Happy and can recommend this trip for full

It was a really well organized and relaxed day. The crew was very friendly and you had enough time everywhere. The food on the boat was super fresh and delicious, including grilled fish, chicken and sausages. Fresh salads and fruit and garlic baguette.

Well organized tour. Absolutely worth the money. Between the islands a lot of fish where the corals are still intact .... Super nice crew, with delicious food and drink (plentiful) and a good mood made for a great day, again at any time ...

Super top day. I invite you to make yourself awesome. Very good lunch. We were well served, drink, eat and taste.
