Fantastic, book it now!!! The whole experience was magical; crystal clear waters with hundreds of fish, perfect for snorkelling and we had loads of fun jumping off the high deck of the boat into the sea! Our two children loved the trip and was magical watching the sun set as we travelled back to the harbour. Thank you so much to our fabulous hosts, the food was heaven as you could tell by all the happy guests savouring every mouthful. Would highly recommend and we would be sure to return if we are ever back in Playa Blanca

Family of four with grown up children (23 & 26). Great trip, really nice people running it nothing was too much trouble. The bbq was freshly cooked on board & was all very tasty. Great boat with plenty of seats & you can always seen land. So great if you have nervous sailors.

Without a doubt the funniest night of our holiday. My cheeks were in pain from laughing and smiling when I left. My boyfriend, Sebastien, got picked on a bit and absolutely loved it. Pretty sure he was contemplating leaving me for Miss Jessica. Would 100% recommend!

This show is amazing, if you are looking to laugh and enjoy amazing music and talent this is the show for you !

Amazing food and unbelievable show, so funny, we laughed all night from start to finish
