It’s all great activity with children, we brought our 18 months son and didn’t have any problem. He loved it. Great to have the guide telling about the rich owners of the island and stop by monkey island !

At first when we pulled away from the shore it seemed a bit dull. But when we began to weave through the islands wow! Very nice. Fascinating to see all the houses on their own islands. Definitely do this.
