It was a nice boat trip, very relaxed. Very nice that we could snorkel at a nice swimming spot! They kept a close eye on us and gave clear explanations about the snorkeling. We also got lunch on the boat and it was quite fine. I thought it was well worth it. (Not recommended if you get seasick quickly due to the waves that appear every now and then)

Reservation made online. The day of departure we are told that the boat left earlier and that we were contacted the day before. False or email addressed. Nice example of overboking! We are offered the next day, fortunately we could otherwise bye the exit. Nice outing, 3 hours by boat round trip for 1 hour of swimming. Pleasant staff

Beautiful moment on the ocean. Nice little cruise, 1 hour journey to get to the bathing point (provide a little card game for the children). Nice swimming area and safe even for the youngest (life jacket, mask and snorkel provided). Clear water, fish and others to admire, very nice moment. Back on the boat Greek salad + glass of wine to taste, super pleasant to eat in the middle of the water, in the sun. Return to port with explanation from the captain on certain points of view. Great experience, good value for money.
