From

Memorable parts? Impossible to say. I loved it from the moment I got on-board to the day I had to leave. Tips? Take warm clothes as being on the water is much colder than being on land. Binoculars are a must too. Local benefits? Yes I think it probably did all of the above Overall rating? Oh at least 6 stars. Christophe was all one could want in a skipper esp. as I was rather nervous doing the big boat to little boat transfer.....calm as could be and so professional.... (more)Annabel Cope

From
£1,045
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The fantastic food, the gorgeous views and the lovely people I ended up on the cruise with (we were only 8 but what a great group). Tips? BOOK IT! Local benefits? I felt that visiting the islands in a small boat with a tender rather than a giant cruise ship was of definite benefit in that the impact on the islands was far less than it would have been. I also like that the boats are recycled fishing vehicles. All the crew worked hard to show us local wildlife.... (more)Deborah Climie
