Wonderful experience!

Kyle P. United States, 23 May 2023
The best experience ever

We recently went on the Butterfly Cruise with Captain Kastas and Sailor Hassah. No issues with our pick up, the driver was knowledgeable about the island and discussed many things on our trip to the boat. The boat was extremely clean and my husband and and I travel quite a bit. However, these two gentleman were the most accommodating that I have ever seen. We were taken care of the entire trip. They were very knowledgeable about the island and let us know what we were experiencing along the way! The food was excellent, great stops to snorkel along the way. We took some great pictures with the drone overhead and saw the beautiful sunset. I would 100% take this trip again, it is well worth it. If your looking for an outstanding experience, look no further and book this!

Awesome experience

Such a great experience. Our crew were all nice and excellent. The boat was and the views were perfect. The dinner was also very tasty and they kept us supplied with anything we wanted to drink.

Private Sunset Catamaran Cruise

We had an unforgettable experience on the Butterfly Cruise despite the changes in weather that day. This was a very special moment because my partner chose this date and place for our engagement. The crew was amazing they were very attentive to all of our needs and made this experience extra special. The food was very good I have a shellfish allergy and they were able to cook me a separate dish. The catamaran was very neat and well-maintained. Thank you!
