Pick up and drop off were easy at the Marina where there is a little store you can buy any last minute items you need for your trip, and a bathroom. Our guide, Wellington, did not speak English however we had a Portuguese speaker with us so all was fine. They had 2 medium sized coolers on board with ice and we put our food and drinks in there for the trip. There were four of us and we had ample room to be in the shade or lay/sit on the front to get sun. I wouldn't book for more than about 8 people. We stopped twice to swim in the water. We were able to connect to their speakers with Bluetooth and play our own music as well as request places to go. It was a great day!!
