The ride with the rigid hull inflatable boat is very exhausting. You get wet and with the wind it gets very uncomfortable in the long run. The overnight stay in the Lavvus and the organization there was great!

It's an exciting adventure on a rib boat. Thanks for the good weather we saw the beautiful sunset in midnight. The crowd of seagulls was incredible and fishes jumped above the water. Very impressive.
