We pride ourselves with the comfort of our fleet. Our boats are all equipped for divers and snorkelers. However, if you wish to come out with us for a relaxing day without getting your hair wet, you will find the boats both spacious and comfortable. The sun decks are fitted with luxurious sunbathing mattresses, so you can stretch out and soak up the sun, you will also find suitable shaded areas before you turn too pink. The food on board is exquisite, with an authentic Eastern buffet lunch, you may purchase additional drinks on board and sometimes additional snacks are available to keep you going in between.
