Hello! Is the "catamaran + lobster + caipi" tour private or do you take more people on board? Also, do you sail with the catamaran in any case or do you also take the wooden boat? We are considering booking this tour but with a 9-month old baby in tow for which I think the catamaran wouls be bette in case he would need to nap. Thanks so much!!
