The views were incredible, length of time was just right, the crew was great. The people that joined the trip were all lovely and friendly, all ages from families to couples. Was really a wonderful little trip on a really nice catamaran, great way to see the coastline. Maybe an additional snack with the lunch would be good as it was tasty but quite simple (chicken pasta salad). Would have loved if they actually sailed vs motoring as I love to sail and would like them to try to not use gasoline when possible to be more sustainable.

I had my doubts, but it was absolutely worth it! Well organized, nice route, enough time for jumping and swimming. Very nice and helpful staff. And lunch was decent! I totally expected a sad sandwich, but we got some pasta with vegetables and chicken (one drink is also included). Overall, great!

This was a fantastic activity! The boat was spacious and comfortable and the staff were great. They even waited for me when I was late to arrive due to a taxi issue! I was so grateful. The cruise passes beautiful rock formations and beaches, while playing music and with a bar where you can buy drinks and snacks! The stop to swim was lovely and I got to SUP. The “water park” is just two trampoline style platforms with a tube connecting it where you can try and balance and cross to win a free drink, but it was still fun. There is space to let in the sun or sit in the shade and toilets onboard.
