    This relaxing day out on the Mediterranean was a fantastic way to end our Spanish holiday and I'd recommend it. Thank you very much.

    I booked this as something different to do on my daughter’s birthday as we were in Barcelona with her teenage friends. The crew was welcoming. There is a bar where you can buy drinks. The live saxophonist even played “Happy Birthday” and the crew rang the boat’s bell. It was very relaxed and just the right length of time. The teenagers loved it! Thank you Orsem.

    The boat and limited (8) people was all as described, and our host was friendly, as well as caring to the needs to those that got sea sick on what was little cloudy day and not a smooth sea. The experience is certainly recommended although like all such events satisfaction is also dependent upon factors outside the company's control. The snacks were probably a little less than described but the mixture of drinks OK. Three passengers got sick and the host took the boat back to drop some off early and then went back out again, showing flexibility and a willingness to give as much as he could.
