This trip was advertised on GetYourGuide as a 3.5 hour round trip excursion to the Prince Islands with some time on one of the Islands. But what it actually turned out to be was a 1.5 hour trip around the sea with no stops. It was enjoyable enough for what it was, but it was annoying that what I got was significantly different than what was described
