This was a fantastic trip!! All the beaches were stunning, lots of opportunities to go for a swim/snorkel! The lunch was lovely and the crew were great!! There were only 11 of us on the boat which was great but we felt like if it was max capacity of 25 it would have been too crowded. Plenty of drinks to go round too!

Great outing, 3 stops in beautiful places, to go swimming, and snorkeling. Top meal, unlimited drinks and small snacks in the morning and fresh fruit salad in the afternoon. I recommend it's really great.

Great cruise with plenty of time at each swim stop. Delicious lunch, great portion size and includes added snacks late morning and afternoon before returning to the Marina.

Enjoyed a lovely day out on the catamaran. Swam at some lovely spots and good lunch provided on board with some snacks and lots of drinks on offer.

Fantastic excursion, fair price and delicious food - also for vegetarians :)
