We had a very good time. The boat was leaping up and down through the waves which was lots of fun. When we reached the caves the tide was too high. I got really seasick on the way back. Luckily the crew had provided sick bags.But overall the trip was great!

Super fun tour! But we did expect more information since they advertise with a marine biologist being on board. Also, they overbooked the boat tour and we got side seats that were uncomfortable. At the end, all tours depart from the same place and seem to be the same, too. So just go for the cheaper one! I think also, this was the only boat including toilets, of it helps with your decision making.(but it’s too bouncy anyways for using the toilets). It’s a shame we couldn’t go inside the caves properly.

The boat was 20 minutes late, so we had to wait in the hot sun before boarding. That also made our trip 20 minutes shorter as the boat was trying to make up time for the next group of boaters. The location of the flotation devices was not mentioned to the tour participants. When I asked about it, the location was explained to me, but not to the rest of the group.
