Me and my friend came for the sunset tour and was blown away. We were greeted at the correct meeting point and was taken to the boat where the captain spoke through everything we needed to know. We set sail at the correct time and at the beginning of our journey we was offered food and drink. The boat was lovely and clean too.

I really enjoyed the speed boat tour. Little chicken, was our guide! Sorry I can’t remember what his real name, he said it stood for “little chicken”. He was so cute! He did a great job of explaining everything when we slow down to look at points Of interest. He offered jackets to people that might be cold and genuinely wanted everyone to enjoy the trip.
