Super expérience. Le buffet était bon, l’ambiance excellente et un coucher du soleil magnifique. On a même vu des dauphins. Seul petit bémol, il faut avoir l’estomac solide pour l’aller, car ça secoue pas mal. Je conseille de prendre qch pour le mal de mer.

Very cool trip, nice guides who teach you the basics of sailing. You will also learn something about the city and the surrounding area. The stop for swimming and snorkeling was also very good, in a nice place.

An absolute dream! Sailing through the wind during the sunset and dreamy music is totally worth it❤️
