Pickup was easy and fast I was considered about amount of food on the boat and it was okay. There were warnings about getting sea sick, but the boat was really stable and had no problems what so ever. Everything was straight forward and easy to understand. Personel speaks English German and Spanish fluently, and staff was amazing. Reading comments about I understand that this is the only perfect option for this experience. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️+ star experience

It was a special experience. It's nice that few people go on the boat. That makes it very personal. A lot was told about the animals and they are also very concerned with the welfare of the animals. We really enjoyed it. The food could be a little more extensive. Some tapas or something like that is better than a sandwich of ordinary bread.
