The crew regularly asks if everything is to your liking and if you want something to drink, nice crew, nice music and a good lunch. Could choose from chicken, pork, pasta, rice, potatoes, salad and vegetables. We also had no problems with delays. Everything was well arranged.

Really great day out with 2 stops to swim in the sea. The hosts were super friendly and formative and definitely made the trip so much more enjoyable. Felt is was really good value for money and the the boat didn’t feel overcrowded. Food and open bar were a bonus!
