    So glad we went on this tour. So relaxing and sunny, and there was only one other couple with us. The port was also delicious. The captain and guide kept us comfortable with large beanbag pillows for lounging on the bow. Then just as I was about to dig out my jacket, they gave us warm and cozy blankets. If you want relaxing, peaceful and beautiful views, this is the way to go!

    A great activity! A great time spent and a top skipper. I really recommend this sailboat ride. Just a small downside: a pity that the sails were not taken out.
