The cruise was very nice. A large boat which made our voyage smooth. The stops were good and surely take advantage of the swim stops. Note the direction of the sun if you need to worry about it as it gets quite hot. Only issue was that we were not on the inventory of passengers. But they let us on board when I showed them the online booking confirmation.

A very nice trip on a smaller boat not overloaded with people. There are many swimming stops and a good lunch. The trip is led by a family and you can tell - a very family atmosphere on the boat. The destinations are very beautiful and the time flies by.

A really great day out. Family run boat, excellent swimming stops and a substantial, tasty lunch. Highly recommended.

Cozy boat .. not as big/full as many other tour boats .. very nice lunch .. nice swimming stops

Nice experience: swimming in clear blue waters, good information from guide and a good lunch.
