Do not miss it ! An incredible moment, between the observation of dolphins and the visit of the caves, we take full eyes. Our guide was absolutely adorable, and the captain made us benefit from his mastery of the boat for some sensations. Many very pleasant musical moments to accompany the journey. I recommend 200%!

Ein super Erlebnis! Die Guides haben das auch super gemacht, dass wir an allen Booten vorbei gefahren sind und somit in Ruhe ohne riesen Andrang die ganzen Höhlen anschauen konnten. Die Größe vom Boot ist perfekt, jeder konnte gut sehen. Unser Kapitän war auch super, er hat uns am Ende nochmal richtig spaßige Action geboten! Nur zu empfehlen. Danke für das tolle Erlebnis! :)
