After reading some of the other TripAdvisor reviews, my wife and I were a bit skeptical about the tour. However, we embarked on a beautiful 28C sunny day in May on the Moena for the Grottoes Tour. The boat crew were very friendly and fun. The route taken to the Grottoes as about an hour, and with calm seas, the... More

We chose this company primarily for their bigger cruiser but it wasn't worth the money at all! We left for a cruse and cave visit but due to the large swell we decided that it wasn't entirely safe to bring a young child on the smaller boat to the caves. So we stayed in the one spot anchored up and... More

It's just an horific boat cruise without any attractions. If you wanna go on a short cave boat trip you have to pay extra. The boat stops after 45 min cruise for an hour. On our cruise 30% of the people got seasick - staying on one spot for over an hour on a heavy sea with a disgusting diesel... More

Awesome boat trip!! Would 100% recommend. This is my 2nd trip and would return for a third. Awesome trip to the caves in glass bottom boat and smooth transition onto it. Great banter with staff and running commentary on trip throughout! Jimmy especially very funny on glassbottom boat :-)) 10/10

What a horrible day out that was. The pictures on the leaflets are very deceiving, it's not anything like that. We expected to be taken around lots of caves and get off the boat onto a small beach "only accessible by boat". We also expected to get off the boat for a swim, like the leaflet advertises. No no no,... More

poor communication on board - no information about sharkfishing and no fish caught at all - a total waste of time and money - stay away.

We thought we were going on a sea tour with a trip to the caves but that was more of an inconvenience than anything else! We were packed onto a boat akin to a Venice sea taxi, over 60 people, some of us sat on the bow in front of the driver as space really wasn't at a premium on... More

We booked the tour to visit caves and look for dolphins in a boat with a glass bottom. The boat itself didn't have it, just the tiny boat, they pulled behind it. We left with a thirty minute delay, without any explanation. They didn't bring us into caves, just drove by them. On the way back, they didn't stop to... More

Overcrowded boat, no swim offered, didn't get to go to the caves because of rough sea. You would think experienced seaman would know about water an weather conditions ahead of time. Paid 27 euros to watch lots of people vomiting.

Waste of money. The trip out the caves was ok. Luckily we were sitting in the front. It was in the sun but on the way back we were happy we were away from diesel fumes. Not enough room for everyone to be sitting outside. Luckily we had only paid 16 euros for the boat trip and swim. Those who... More
