Had a lovely trip yesterday to see the caves. The skipper and crew were very friendly and looked after all on board very well. The views of the coastline are stunning and the visits to the various caves a good experience. Would recommend the trip.

I would say that I liked the experience overall (thanks to the staff on board who were great) but liked is a too strong word. The food they served on the beach was ok (given the circumstances) but the beach we went to was awful....More
