The ferry was not running that day because of the sea condition. So they came on the main land to pick us up for a tour that last 2,5 h instead of one. The adventure was great. Thank you.

What a fun ride! They provide a suit that keeps you warm and dry. The staff are so friendly and hilarious. Good price for what you get especially if you're on a cruise where they charge two to three times the amount.More
