I was the only English-speaking traveller so I essentially had a private tour with one of the Islanders. The islanders and staff are friendly and helpful. The beach was quiet with only 4-5 other travelers. I recommend this excursion if you are looking to relax and enjoy the sun

Very nice and well run cruise. Nice people, beautiful sunset views and views of the city while enjoying a glass of wine and small eats! Good music too, not too loud but loud enough to dance to as some people did The catamaran is stable and feels steady with no rocking.

We found the ride very comfortable. The snacks were delicious and so were the drinks. We can only recommend.

Sunset was so amazing to watch. Boat, staff music was great. Overall wonderful experience

Great experience - well organised & helpful staff.
