The weather is part of the sea, and part of the sailing, it's impossible to be good and enjoyable to all the people. The weather isn't the reason to give that review.

We spent a real good day with Victor on 3 differents islands. Restaurant on the fishing island was very good as well (clams and big fish for 4 people)

Victor was the perfect host for the day, charming and full of knowledge, I wish we did this on the first day in stead of the last!

We were lucky enough to enjoy a fantastic morning with Mare Alta, and were rewarded with the most magnificent dolphin show, as these beautiful creatures swam beside our boat for a very long time. Highly recommended.
