Was a Bit sceptical since these organized group trips can sometimes not be so good but the trip really was great fun and the hosts were excellent. Both had a fantastic time despite my girlfriend feeling a bit sea sick! Only minor downside would be that the trip said max four participants but there were actually 8 on our trip - although everybody was a great laugh and the more people actually made the trip more enjoyable we thought! Well worth the money.

This sailing boat excursion is so beautiful, there are never too many people on board, it is very familiar and you can even take the wheel if you want, wonderful vegetarian food and drinks such as beer and wine and lemonade included, great crew, you can see them working with you Heart.
