So it was a very nice experience but I advise you to go during a period when it is quite hot because in December it is very windy! The pick up was very good from the hotel to the boat The island is just beautiful it feels like the Caribbean

A really great excursion with a great crew who are very friendly and accommodating. I would book this excursion again at any time. There was really nothing to complain about.
