We had a lovely boat ride. The lady in the office was very helpful (and after overhearing the transaction before ours, apparently fluent in Italian). The boat was quite small but quick. The man driving the boat was funny and knowledgeable ( if it's brown...More

Lady that serves you at the counter is very helpful and kind. They provide capes (to protect from sea spray) if required. The boat itself was entirely fine for the trip but it's quite old. There are sufficient life jackets on the boat, however these...More

We arrived on the off-chance of getting a place on this trip and were lucky. The boat was full (12 people) and we set off from the harbour, speeding up and bumping our way over the water. This was quite exciting (so long as you're...More
