Skip the large boats
, Oct 2021
What a waste of our precious vacation time. This is a slow boat to nowhere. The closest you get to the cave is 100 yards away. They said the sea was to rough but smaller boats were darting in and out of the caves. Then they slowly took us back to a beach for a bbq. Sadly they were not prepared for us to return so early, so no nothing to drink (not even water) and nothing to eat. We started waking down the beach and saw other tours with happy people eating and drinking. We kept walking till we found a beach side restaurant and then call an Uber to get us back to the hotel.

Excellent experience. We loved the boat, the caves visit and the barbecue on the beach. The crew is fantastic and the captain very professional always concerned about our safety. Definitely recommend.

Muy buen viaje, todos se encargan de que estemos agusto en todo momento. La. Verdad, que teniendo en cuenta la situación que vivimos, el barco iba completamente lleno, para una situación no hay problema pero para esta época, mínimo debería ir al 75%.
Ambiance de dingue

Une sortie en petit comité qui n'a rien enlevé de la convivialité et l'excitation de découvrir les superbes grottes et falaises de cette région! Équipage au top, aux petits soins, drôle et qui nous a fait passer un excellent moment
