Rude staff at waiting area. Pushed us out of the shade. Rude and pretty sad and bored boat driver. He was angry with passengers not wearing masks properly. He could have asked politely. Also a girl passenger was sea sick and throw up and they did not bother offering help. Bad service. Ticket sales lady was nice also the other boatman was okay. Ride itself is practically boring, nothing exciting. No explanation, well nothing to say really. Maybe good for children who has never been in a boat. Not recommended. Take the hiking trail instead.

I’m not a fan of touristy boat trips but I enjoyed this one! It left promptly and got deep into the caves / brushed past beautiful rugged coastline. It also provides an opportunity to stay on one of the less busy beaches (although from what I could see it’s not significantly nicer than the Menuda beach). The sea is always choppy though so perhaps this is not a trip for those who get nervous at a bumpy ride! The duration was about an hour and I would recommend it.

A beautiful boat trip to see the rocky coast, marine caves, coves and lovely beaches near Tossa de Mar. Our trip lasted close to an hour and was well worth the money spent. Glass panels in the boat enabled us to observe fish. The boat entered 3 coves and we were able to get some great photos, as the captain and his assistant turned on spotlights in one of them. The coastline was gorgeous and those who wanted, could get off at the last small beach and stay or explore before coming back (every half hour there was a return trip). Highly recommended!

Doing this is relaxing. Not really spectacular but relaxing on a boat, nice conversations with people from abroad, kids liked the view very much. Stop halfway was excellent as well.
