Our captain Anis and his assistant George made it possible for us to have a wonderful day. They showed us beautiful bays with great bathing places and also gave us the choice of how long we wanted to stay where. They also fed us very well. It was a great experience. Lovely again.

Top of the line experience! The skippers were adorable, they made us discover two magnificent bays, and even some archaeological treasures! We had at our disposal drinks, fresh fruit, and all the necessary equipment to snorkel, I recommend this activity to everyone, the boat is beautiful, the staff brilliant, and all that for a more than reasonable price !!

A very special experience in a private atmosphere. The skipper was in a great mood and fulfilled our every wish. The bays in front of the island of Dias are very nice to switch off and immerse yourself in. We had a very good meal (chicken and fish), wine and, if ordered in advance, also beer. Everything was very straightforward. With a small extra payment, we extended the day trip and sailed into the sunset. A really great day.
