He was an amazing gentleman who picked us up from Anse Major and dropped to our hotel. Even it was windy he made boat to get close and drop us on the beach. Polite and nice person.

This guy was fantastic. Picked us up from Beau Vallon beach, dropped us off on a boat that was otherwise an hours walk. Then took us back. The guy was knowledgeable, the boat clean and well maintained.
