We started the excursion at about 17:30, it took a very long time to collect and prepare everything, my children and I were tired even before sailing. The guide took an intern, but in the end they didn't tell us anything at all, we ourselves had to ask questions. When the sun stopped baking, we climbed onto the roof and enjoyed the views, and the girls with musicians and sailors danced, sang and had fun below)) we met the sunset close to the coast, on the pier, and not in the ocean, explained that it was getting dark quickly and we didn’t we will have time to swim after sunset. Fruit is just pineapple. Drinks - water, cola, fanta. In general, the tour is not worth your money and your time.

Super excursion of about 2 hours! We took full eyes of it. The staff on board were lovely and our guide was wonderful :) Thanks to him for showing interest in us, and for being available before, during and after.
