I have seen some of them bad reviews on here but this was not our experience. We had a great day on this trip. It was well organised and the caves were excellent. The private beach was lovely and picturesque and lunch was very nice. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The sea could have been a bit warmer but you can't blame the captain for that lol. The beer on the boat on the way back was lovely and cold just enough to get the salt taste out of our mouths. The dolphins wernt playing out either but it's a big ocean after all

My honest advise, because I do not anyone to get through such a poor event, better spend the day on the beach and to a nice restaurant instead of spending money on the trip we had. We have spent 300 EUR 5 people for a trip of 5 hours. When returned and asked for some explanations I heard only lies and awful justifications. It was a family trip visiting caves, seeing the dolphins, snorkeling etc. Of course some of these never happened. Service and atmosphere- poor. Trip was on 12.08.2017 from 15:00.

Please look at the many reviews prior to booking. We had a horrendous day fraught with problems including one engine that failed 15 minutes into the trip. We should have been on a private beach within an hour. Four hours later we were transported onto a public beach being fed cold food. Had to be transported back by coach. Not please as the crew blatantly tried to assure everyone that everything was OK when clearly it wasn't . What a dissspointment. Tried to get an apology
but the agent who booked the trip at our hotel was unable to get a refund let alone an appology stating they had spoken to the owner and denied there was a problem that day.There are other company's in the area. Try them. Give this one a wide berth

We opted for the sea caves tour for 4 of us at something like EUR 25 each. The description and pictures in the pamphlet led us to believe we would be sailing through some pretty spectacular caves. Reality was a little different.

It took 2 hours to get to the caves, looking at endless beaches and nothing else really of interest. When we got to the caves we sailed close to them but I could see there was no way a boat of our size was going to get any closer. So after reviewing 2 or 3 cave openings we then sailed back for another 2 hours. We were very tempted to jump off and swim to the party boat that sailed by. The crew, although very nice, did not do a great job of keeping anyone entertained, apart from the one crew member who seemed to be setting up his own little harem on top of the boat with selected female passengers.

Pretty dull overall, next time I will hire a car and a paddle boat or book on the party boat.
