We did the 5.5 hours trip Roses to Cap Creus. Every moment enjoyable. Great fun day out. Brilliant views. Crew fantastic, food tasty, a lots of soft drinks or sangria served with the meal included in the price. Enough time to swim and eat on board. Music was good, low key party feel but def not a booze cruise, no forced fun. Very inclusive, enjoyable for all the members of our family - Mum, Dad and teen. Highly recommend

Great time! Great organization! Top atmosphere Unbeatable value for money Lunch very good, simple but fresh! The catamaran accommodates a maximum of 80 people, but you have room for shipments to install very easily. No problem with places! Musical atmosphere ;)

It was a very nice tour to Cadaques with a swimming/snorkeling stop in between. Our children and we liked it very much. Water and coke was even included in the price. I found a beer for 2 euros more than ok. We can definitely recommend the tour!

Wonderful tour! Our guide, Ruben, was great. He was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about Girona, Catalonia and Salvador Dali. We got some great photos too!

All great, a great experience. We really enjoyed it and would do it again. Both the captain and the sailors very nice ❤️
