Catamaran in good condition. Heavy seas, I think it's better to be on this type of boat than on a speed boat even if it saves travel time. Very correct meal (potato salad, pasta, grilled chicken and fish and pineapple for dessert) but not practical to eat on your knees packed in the middle of the catamaran! Many people in the same place for the second island, it was really "herd" it takes away the charm of the place and you have to pay attention to the boats arriving (1st island we were in the first to disembark, we saw the crowd come next!)

Samir is very kind and profissional. Better with a private boat than with 30 or more people in a catamaran We left very early to arrive before the other catamarans (16 in all) we had the island just for us. I saw turtles. The food was very good. Then we went snorkeling at Coin de Mire, arriving before everyone else, we were able to enjoy and see the fish. The boat was clean. Everything was perfect.

Sameer is very friendly and outgoing without being intrusive. Very professional and secure. It has one of the only shaded gazebos and its lunch was simple but excellent. Even my children who were moderately excited were delighted at the end of the day!

Magnificent day spent on the catamaran to discover the flat islands, Gabriel and point de mire. The team is very friendly and caring with a great bbq. thanks to the whole team

Great excursion! Nice islands, good food on the beach and nice snorkeling. We are all super happy!
