Nice sailing trip with a personable skipper. Delicious snacks and drinks as you want them. Unfortunately we didn't have such great weather, but José conjured up the sun for us with honey rum and sparkling wine. Would do the trip again and again.

Absolutely brilliant trip brilliant staff food and beer, was abit gutted the jet ski wasn't there and think it is a bit pricy especially if you want to go on as a family, but was a lovely experience.
