    First of all , it was not overbooked – not full capacity so that there is enough room to maintain distance and be comfortable while enjoying the trip and activities . The boat is very clean and the staff are all complying with restrictions – face masks and cleanliness The destination was nice for the swim and snijding , the food was above expectations – clean and tasty . Great drinks available if you wish to buy extras like non alcoholic cocktails .

    The cove/place to swim, where we stopped with the catamaran, was not that special, but okay. The food was good and enough for around 70 people on the boat. Age of the group was between 18 and 60 and there were groups as well as couples and single travellers. The boat had more than enough space for everybody. Boat is quite new, looks nice.

    Very nice boat, experience to do to discover the island from another angle. Food not bad! The stopping places were good, but a little disappointing compared to the description seen beforehand and sometimes a little short. Overall very nice time spent! * the key is to have a good place 😉

    Fun amazing boat trip around the North Coast. Worth the money! The only thing I wished they did different was not stopping so long at each “stop” if you will. Because for us it was only 2 stops and then we were done, I would have liked it to be shorter but more stops rather than longer but few stops. But other than that, superb! 🙂

    it started with bad weather and big waves and we were warned about it and offered to change the dates, but we still went with it – and we are glad we did! at first it was very wavy, but as soon as we docked in Formentor paradise started! We tried the kayaks, enjoyed the water, the food was great and especially the watermelon We did skip 1 beach due to the waves, but we still visited Formentor and the weather got a lot better and then later we also stopped for a quick swim before coming back. Highly recommended and the crew is great casual and relaxed summer atmosphere, it's not sm
