It was simply one of the most exciting experiences of my life. Very well organized, beautiful places, we swam and visited spectacular beaches and caves. The captain is a great person! I will always carry in my heart the image of him taking my hand to encourage me to cross the Blue Grotto where I was afraid to swim. It opened my heart. I was moved, but even if not everyone is extremely emotional like me, I'm sure it will arouse the same joy in everyone. ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED! Thanks to the whole crew.

Very nice boat tour in a very clean ship with enough space. The boat was not crowded and there was good space. Drinks were available for purchase on the ship itself. The guide was very experienced and the whole crew was very nice. The time was kept almost on time and the stops are optimally chosen. We did the tour with two children and it was a great and unforgettable trip.

The ride was beautiful. We stopped 3 times to swim and watched dolphins. The captain was very friendly and the food was delicious on board. Is also something for children, I can only recommend.

Was great! Really to recommend. It was a lot of fun, the team is really very friendly, especially the captain and Ivan. Everything perfect!

We had a wonderful day with many highlights. The crew was very friendly and accommodating. Our 10 year old son liked it. I loved the music
