All the while, enjoy commentary from your expert crew, and the company of Jabaar, the small beagle who lives on board the ship.

The day was perfect all around. Sven helped us feel very welcome immediately. He was very funny and made sure everyone was having fun. We saw many dolphins on our travels, which was a lovely bonus and were able to swim in a number of beaches, each with crystal clear waters. Sven brought a drone, which was able to capture photos and videos of our experience. Sandwiches and a range of many cold drinks were offered aboard.

Sven was absolutely amazing, had a lot of character and keep us entertained. Can’t have imagined the boat day going any better!!

It was such a fun day! We had food and drink provided and were able to swim with the fish multiple times! Definitely recommend

The skipper who greeted us in the morning was friendly and sympathetic
