The tour was amazing and I would definitely recommend it. Our guide even drove us to a special spot where we could see dolphins. The food was also very good with different options to choose from (pork, chicken, veggie).

The crew is extremely friendly. Several small islands are approached and you can go swimming twice in between. You can also lie down on board or if it is too warm we can sit in the shade.

Very enjoyable experience and very reasonably priced, it was super sunny and hot so wish there was more covered areas on the ship but other than that had a really good time!

Super cool experience!! You have to do it, it's very worth it. Very friendly staff!!

A nice ride in time to move around the islands and swim. Meals were good.
