the tour was just amazing. the boat is for my wife and I a must see on vacation and we were not disappointed with it. a more than top staff, a multitude of stops to swim in crystal clear waters. I think we spent more time in the water than on the boat for our greatest pleasure. meals in this type of activity are often revised downwards and well let me tell you that this one was simple but really very effective. thank you for this great time. go there with your eyes closed.

The boat tour was a great change from everyday vacation life. The boat was great with little loud music. On the other ships, loud music sometimes plays continuously. The crew tried very hard to accommodate us, the food on board was okay. Drinks prices were totally okay. We really enjoyed the trip.

Great value for the money we paid. We went for swimming in different beach spots, all of them beautiful and different. Nice lunch, they even offered tea and biscuits. The crew of the Boat they are all great people.

Full tour. English speaking guide is lovely. We have been able to see turtles, and we have been able to fish for crabs. A very nice excursion

Excellent. Comfortable, spectacular bathing areas. Simple but rich food.
