Friendly, humorous and multi-lingual crew who go to extraordinary lengths to look after passengers a little green behind the gills. Free anti-sickness pills for the unsure and those who know they will be otherwise. The old sailors ministrations to the sick are an entertainment in themselves. Be warned that the sailings will be cancelled in bad weather - weather which... More

We have been on loads of these boat trips over the world and was really looking forward to it. Having first booking it I was told that all the drinks were included. But you had to pay for everything on the boat and the main language spoken was very sten German. There was NO music on the two hour trip... More

We've just done the all day Robinson trip. The whole day was amazing from start to finish! The crew are brilliant and very friendly. If you would like a completely well organised, relaxing trip with some beautiful sights, a paradise beach... And a delicious BBQ... Then definitely do this trip!!

The captain and crew work soooooo hard to provide a fun day out for all their buccaneers! I was a little nervous after reading a few bad reviews but after going on the trip I cannot fathom how anyone could dispute the value for money of this expedition. We were well warned about the perils of the sea and kindly... More

Excellent boat trip, very professional, safe and fun! They take you along the coastline giving you lots of local information along the way and then stop to give you a chance to dive in and also explore inside the caves. If there are a lot of people, one group will go swimming while the others get into smaller boats to... More

Had seen quite a lot of boat trips out advertised but as it was a pirate boat and I really really wanted to do this managed to convince my partner this was the one for us. Neither of us were disappointed, the boat was beautiful, the scenery amazing, the trips in to the caves were great, some of them were... More

Excellent. We had a 3,5 hour trip with cave exploring. Swimming in ocean and jumping from the ship. Well spent money.

PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY AND LOOK TO BOOK WITH SMALLER LOCAL CAVE TRIPS AS THEY WILL ONLY GO WHEN SEAS ARE CALM. Where do I start. Turned up at the dock and paid 70 euros with my wife and 3 year old for what we hoped was going to be a fantastic trip and see the caves. On... More

This was definitely something new but something you will only do once. The boat itself is lovely.... I'd advise sitting on the middle deck where there is more shade from the sun. Bring sea sickness medicine as if the water becomes choppy, it will causes it of stomach discomfort. The staff are quite helpful in these circumstances, by providing ice... More

I joined an afternoon tour leaving at 1430 a few days ago with my friend and three young children. I am honestlyj disappointed cause (1) for €35 per adult and 20 per child, the tour has nothing to do with pirates except the outlook of the ship and the pirate flag in the front. There are cheaper tours that do... More
