Spectacular beaches and the boat was not very full. I was able to see the turtles, but I think they must be stressed by the overwhelming boat traffic. The Guide spoke Spanish, as indicated in the description. But the guide does not enter the boat, where the landscapes are explained exclusively in Portuguese. The “buffet” type food is not on the boat, so it is better to take food with you or you will have to pay on the boat because there are many hours. The food in the description is given at the end of the journey, when you have got off the ship, around 6 in the afternoon. It does not include drinks, which you have to pay for, and it is not a buffet. It is a menu of fried fish or meat (abundant, I did not go hungry) but there is not much to choose from.

Our guide Mariana was incredibly personable. Unfortunately we were promised an early pick up but not kept. Had to wait at the pier at 7am for over an hour early in the morning. Boat good but extremely loud. Music selection not necessarily for every taste. I suspect the exuberant party mood was more at the start of the Carneval in Brazil.
