Very nice experience, the boat is very small and the crew is very friendly. If you tell them you're not speaking Spanish they also have an audio guide over speakers in your language in addition to what the driver is telling you. There are also Gambas and some whine included.

It was a nice trip with a very nice captain who put a lot of effort into it. The tour is timed clearly, not too long and not too short. Just right to discover the sights. The trip is definitely recommended. A small highlight at the end is the tasting of wine and shrimp.

A short but very nice cruise for those who want to learn more about the region and the delicacies that are caught in the surrounding waters every day. You don't have to worry about the language, the guide has audio recorded, also in Polish. Muchas gracias

Great atmosphere, interesting information and, above all, in Polish :) delicious treat;)

Charming captain very polite. The wine and prawns were excellent. Would recommend 100%.
