    The unforgettable experience was totally worth it. I just missed diving and seeing some fish, I thought I would do it in a cave or another area and that I would be guided. The only thing they offered us was to jump into the sea to swim (in the middle of the ocean) and they would give you a diving scale if you wanted, but I didn't see anything really.

    The Tour itself was amazing! However it was difficult to locate the dock. The guy said take a right at the foot bridge and it’s the first dock. Which we were at for some time and saw no one, so we walked further down and saw the boat leaving the first dock on the Left side of the marina! After this confusion we missed the boat, but they were nice and friendly and allowed us onto the later boat! This messed up my originally planned itinerary, but we were thrilled we were able to make it because it was certainly worth the wait!!

    Great couple of of hours on the sea

    Trip on the boat was great. And then the transfer to the smaller boat to take you around the grotto for which The tour guide was multilingual and knowledgeable. Enjoyed the swim in the sea from the boat but the lack of refreshments available is the reason for 4 instead of 5 stars. Snorkelling gear wasn't great either. Overall I would recommend this as 2 hours very well spent. Abrigado.
