Amazing experience from start to finish. I would highly recommend you do this as part of your trip. We were picked up from our hotel and dropped back after the trip. The service was impeccable, we were served with drinks, refreshments and snacks throughout and a really nice dinner. The views of the island was amazing from the boat and the guys gave a really good tour. We were on sunset boat trip and that offered stunning views of the sunset. Great, great experience!

The value for money is really excellent, the transfer, the meal and everything that follows was really perfect. The guides quite often offer drinks, and offer typical dishes of the country. Very pleasant afternoon and early evening, I recommend!

We really enjoyed our boat tour. The food was excellent, which I didn't expect.

Nice trip between the islands, with time to swim near some of the highlights.

The instructors were great! The best experience of my life !
