Super expérience !!! Bateau à l'heure à l'arrivée et au départ, boissons à volonté, musique ambiance très sympa, vue magnifique, repas copieux, équipage aux petits soins et adorables, arrêt de 2H dans une crique pour plonger et manger, prêt de masque et tuba, des poissons magnifiques à voir juste sous nos pieds, une eau bleue turquoise, tout ça pour ce prix ? C'est un super rapport qualité prix, et 5H30 c'est le timing parfait ! Nous avons fait l'activité le matin dès 9H30 et c'était GÉNIAL !

Nice trip along the coast with a 1.5 hour stop in Cadaques. You will be transported with a larger motor boat. You can sit inside and outside. No significant entertainment on board, you should bring your own. A beautiful, original fishing village. You can get a first impression. However, the house of Salvatore Dali is too far away to be able to visit it in the short time. Excursion is recommended for families/couples.

Great boat trip with possibility to swim in the sea! It was stopped in a beautiful bay where you could swim in the sea. Or just relax on the ship during that time. A highlight is the view through the glass below, where you can look straight into the sea and watch schools of fish. We enjoyed it very much. You can see the landscape from a different perspective. Definitely worth it.

we believed that the boat plunged in fact not at all the fish not crazy (only a kind) on the other hand very nice ride (duration) and in addition the fact that we can swim, dive and slide on the slides very very nice surprise a great time with the family ah the staff at the top, friendly, attentive, smiling…. we highly recommend this activity

Superb outing at sea, with a stop to dive into the water, and especially toboggan at the back of the boat. Really great!
