Our family including out three children we're put at serious risk and despite refusing to board we were forced on. Our children 5 and 2 teenagers almost had serious head injuries as the 'friend' of the captain who was doing him a favour tried to get us to board the vessel out in choppy seas. The captain, crew and 'friend' poorly communicated to each other and the little speed boat overloaded with 9 people, and with no safety gear was being flooded as waves crashed over us. My children were petrified and the driver of the Tender decided to speed away around to another cove where as a result of his speed meant that we were almost washed out of the boat. The vessel later caught up and we boarded. The captain said that he could not discount or refund our money and that if we don't pay he was going to leave my family on some beach and make our own way back (across the island) to our hotel, despite forcing us to board with their hazardous method - bizarre! 2 witnesses decided to leave and others consoled us as they witnessed what was almost a major and tragic incident. I'm an experienced boatie with over 35 years experience on the water and I know in most places this vessel would not be allowed to work in this fashion. My advice - forget this tour!!

We went on 5 hour tour on Sunday 15th June.... Got to see lots of great coastline, staff were great and lunch was great! For Euro 55 each, it is great value. But it means you have to share the boat with people from just about every corner of the world. We were a bit reserved to start with, but by the end chatting with loads of other couples and had a great time.

The highlight was jumping of the boat to swim, which we loved!

We went on the first trip of the season in May and it was a little cold (strong north wind), but the boat coped well with the swell and was very steady. Inside it was nice and warm and we had some interesting views of the seabed. We moored by some rocks in the shelter of the headland and had an excellent barbecue which was included in the price. Drinks on board were reasonably priced and the staff were excellent, pointing out the landmarks along the way.

A nice trip and good sight seeing opportunity.

Fun but quite short trip out to tiny island on nice glass bottom boat. Opportunity to jump into sea, then on to water sports area, great fun on inflatable. Barbecue good but quite basic. Ended nicely with Speedboat trip back to hotel beach.
