    Der Ausflug fand in kleiner Gruppe statt, das war sehr angenehm und man kam schnell ins Gespräch. Die Guides waren total nett. Spontan wurde sogar noch Abholung/Zurückbringen zur Unterkunft organisiert. Die Snacks zwischendurch waren lecker und reichhaltig. Insgesamt war das ein total gelungener Ausflug, der trotz nicht ganz idealem Wetter auf jeden Fall positiv in Erinnerung bleiben wird.

    Really amazing trip! This trip is cheaper than other like it and is definitely more than worth the money! Pete and Cassie were super helpful and kind on the tour and were great at explaining the trip throughout it. We got to see dolphins and turtles and swim at the sandy coast of the island. There was warm bread, biscuits, dried and fresh fruit and free teas, coffees and water on board. You could also purchase alcoholic beverages if desired. There was even free sun cream which was needed! There was a mat and boom net which really made the water even more fun. Had an amazing time seeing the island and wildlife around it and the swim was just gorgeous. Highly recommended

    It was absolutely brilliant, we were able to see several dolphins very closely and even a turtle. The crew takes great care and is delighted to share their knowledge of the surrounding fauna and flora. You can walk freely in the boat enjoying the sun or the shaded area. A good variety of snacks (pizza, biscuit, cake, muffins and exotic fruits) and drinks will be served during the trip. The beach we were taken to was deserted and beautiful with beautiful turquoise water. We had a great time with my best friend I recommend 100%
