I absolutely had an incredible time! I rented it for two hours, I had a very beautiful and romantic time with my partner, we went swimming, we had a snack, and I even proposed to my partner. The owner and the guy we met (pablo) was very sweet, spoke English perfectly and was very welcoming and wholesome. 100% would do it again if I come to Spain. Lots of love xoxo

We had an amazing time renting a boat for the day. It was very easy to book and then meet up at the pier. The instructions for captaining the boat were straightforward and being able to spend the day on the Mediterranean was heavenly. We highly recommend this experience!

This is a really really good trip. The sailors are upbeat friendly and welcoming, they bring fun and are professional too. They go the extra mile to make it adventurous for us passengers, not to be missed !

The transportation was great (big, clean bus with a very personable guide), plenty of free time in the city, friendly and knowledgeable boat guides that quickly found dolphins to observe.

Very relaxing. Skipper was great and plenty of cold beers in the fridge.
