Great excursion. Picked up on time in a nice coach. On arrival at Nessebar we had the option of a little walking tour around the town with a very knowledgeable guide. Then free time during which we enjoyed sampling wine. The cruise on the catamaran was brilliant. Food and the service were very good. The crew members couldn't do enough to help and felt very well looked after. The swim was brief and not really for snorkeling but still worth doing. Would recommend the excursion.

Amazing ride, I recommend to check if you have a transfer from the hotel included or not. Because we were 2 days in advance to see where the meeting point is. Unfortunately it's by Lunapark, so you would get lost. The bus helped us a lot by dropping us right there at the boat dock.

It was a very, very nice day with the people on the water. The trip is really nicely set up with fishing and swimming yourself. For example, my mother was there with us and we both really had a great time

The trip was fantastic, from the captain and his wife and their helpers, to the actual sailing around the Black Sea. We could not fault anything at all.

Stunning views, very kind staff and good food! I can certainly recommend.
