great boat trip, the guide on the boat speaks French which helps to understand the name and history of the caves. We were only 10 on the boat, not giving a mass effect on the boat, which allowed us to greatly appreciate the ride. the boat is small enough to fit in all the caves. I highly recommend this excursion.
