Excellent experience. We are a couple and we preferred to go out with a small group. We found ourselves with 4 other nice people. Very good knowledge and interesting exchanges We had the chance to visit 3 beaches, one of which is heavenly (the first). Honestly, don't hesitate. The captain is super friendly. He offered us a drink on departure. We liked it a lot. We highly recommend.

Very nice crew and boat. Smooth and pleasant ride to the snorkeling spot. Then went to a nice place with about 1 hour of free time to go swim at the beach, visit or have lunch. Wish the snorkeling experience would have lasted a bit longer.

Had a great afternoon with Boris, who is a really nice and chilled guy and tried to create an individual experience for us. We were lucky enough to get on a small boat just for the 4 of us which made everything even easier.

Boris our guide was absolutely amazing. He could tell many good things, and adapted the trip to what we liked. Our stop out at sea where we could snorkel with small fish was really good

Perfect experience, we spent a wonderful morning away from the crowds in a dream setting
