Well organized, procedure explained, whole crew super nice and motivated! Enough choice of drinks, average lunch. Stay on the island too short because only time at souvenir stands (take money) is possible and not for swimming in a quieter corner. Snorkeling should have taken longer BUT despite everything, it was a cool, fun and exciting day !! ... and we saw dolphins :) Despite 23 guests on the catamaran no tight spaces.

Great trip. Well organized from start to finish. Nice crew and very tasty food. We would book this trip again. Only the snorkeling equipment was not very good, we recommend those who have their own to take them with them.

we really enjoyed the day on one boat of Oceane. the crew were awesome: very friendly, grilled a great meal for us and we got a lot of (alcoholic) drinks and snacks.

It was great! The crew was just in a good mood, the beach, the catamaran, the dolphins ... great! Many Thanks

Great day! Crew on top for the atmosphere and respectful Very good and generous meal
