For safety, we took the jacket from the guide. The guide offered us to take pictures on the way. We did not take our camera / cell phones because we were afraid that they would get wet. The guide sent us the photos immediately by email. We would do the tour again immediately. We drove around harbor, a bit out to sea and under the peer
