Amazing. The team clicks you photos that you can buy for 20 Euros. They give it is soft copy via email. Be the last one to fly (which is the person who will exit first from the boat) for the best flight!

Extremely friendly staff and a wonderful ride. We got an extra “speedboat” experience in addition to the parasail, which was extremely fun!

Very pleasant semi-rigid boat that allows you to enter the caves easily and see the dolphins very close. We saw a lot of dolphins. Great

Even though we didn't see the dolphins it was great! Thanks!

Great experience for all ages. Guides were excellent
