Overall rating

(10,981 reviews)

Great family activity. You sit on window benches and look out of glass windows rather than it being a glass floor. Saw a few different kinds of fish. Nothing too unusual but it was a very enjoyable trip. Was a nice gentle ride but due to the stairs down I wouldn’t recommend to those that struggle with stairs etc

Fantastic day. Guide fantastic. Really made everything interesting. Highly recommend. Exceptional value for money. Went with my 16 year old daughter who really enjoyed it too. It’s a tricky task to tour the island as many areas are very remote and isolated. Could not have been better. Book it !!

The tour guide Max is very knowledgeable and I really enjoyed the three hours. Nice tour ,you get to see the rural side of the island.

Fabulous trip around the island, our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and interesting. We had a wonderful day!

Family activity, good atmosphere, no hassle, and with the added bonus of dolphins! Magic awaits...
