Excellent trip. We were blessed with good weather and a nice mix of a total of 10 people. Everyone seem to thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The trips to the tiny caves and cove via small boats have been really amazing. Made 3 or may be 4 stops for swimming. The two guides have been excellent and do look after the group. One of the guide was on his last boat trip as he will be going back to get his master after this trip. Food and drinks were plentiful and all homemade good quality. If you want a lot of meat and carbohydrates then you will be disappointed though. Highly recommended.

It was good activity, sailing around in private cruise. The hosts were really good , cooked us really good meal. showed us around the places in boat. The boat was not able to park on any of the beach or shores, as the bottom part underneath boat was big. But that wasn't really necessary as we were enjoying the view from boat.

I would do this anyday all again! Such an awesome experience! The crew is friendly and hospitable. Left with an amazing memory and experience !! Highly highly recommend! Perfect amount of people (12) ! Not crowded or rowdy. Communicated perfectly with host, transportation was seamless! No issues. Do it!

we changed the beach because the weather conditions (no public bus) and they organized a transfer from the hotel, for free! very kind

Very enjoyable day with our flexible driver/guide.
