Due to their high standards of quality and customer service the company has continually invested in new programs and boats. The Catamaran Liana, built in Vigo-Spain is a Rodman 19 meters Catamaran that will carry 140 passengers, this allows maximum comfort for an all day cruise with lunch included on board. We have a Half Day Vosper 18.5 meters Yacht which accommodates 61 passengers and a 13,5 meters Big Game Fishing Yacht for 20 fishermen.
Our biggest attraction is the full day Cruise to some of Europe's largest caves and stunning rock formations that are on our coastline
