The boat trip is amazing we spotted goats on the island and birds of prey. The snorkeling off the small island was beautifully. The kids 8 a nd 11 kept up with the snorkle safari and we almost all got to hold the octopus before it was carefully returned to the sea. The 11 year old boy bottles the cephalopod! This is the second trip out with Captain Nick and we will be back again!

Awesome trip despite low visibility. Captain Nick was super friendly and welcoming and even managed to find an octopus in very low visibility (never a guarantee to see them at all!). Super nice ride, a free drink and just a great day out for a good price. Highly recommend

This trip of 3.5 hours was amazing, and Nick the captain described the history of the islands visited with an excellent snorkeling excursion. He even allow me to drive the bote and it was my first time in my life. So friendly staff and beautiful places visited.

The tour was verry fun. Nick (the captain) is a verry lovely person wich lot of knowledge and much passion. We saw a lot of things during the trip, even an octopus. He knows exactely where to search and he made a impressive snorkeling tour. The price is absolutely fair. I strongly recomend the tour.
