Super fun, good food, reasonably priced drinks - all around awesome excursion. However, Expedia’s price was double the local price. Also w/ local excursion they did hotel pick-up. We had to spend an additional $50 for taxis. Recommend buying from a local tour stall.

Crew were very friendly and did the whole ‘pirate’ thing well. The BBQ lunch on board was OK but the children had the same pork chops and found it difficult to deal with, especially as we had to eat off our laps. The real downside for us was the boat was crowded and getting seated was a problem, if you got up to go the bar you definitely had to leave someone with sharp elbows to guard your place. The worst thing though was when we stopped in a cove to swim in the sea. You could either jump over board or wait in line for the one ladder they had for people to get on and off. Of course there was a stampede to get into the water, but that quickly turned into chaos as those wanting to get back on competed for the ladder with those still waiting to get off. For children it felt quite uncomfortable and if you weren’t a reasonable swimmer you could get into some distress, which I saw some do. The crew seemed oblivious to this and made no attempt to police the use of the ladder.
