boat was smaller than anticipated

We did have a good day along the Cinque Terre coastline. We were disappointed to learn that we were only able to stop at Vernazza and not any of the other towns along the coastline. The boat was very small, especially when we anticipated it for 6 passengers, lucky only 4 of us made the trip or we would not have fit comfortably.

Everything went perfectly!

Our trip went according to plan, Luka was waiting for us at the pier, along the way we adjusted the time of the meeting. The boat was serviceable, clean. Luke explained how to drive, gave us maps of the Cinque Terre, told us where to sail and where you can land. The weather was great, the nature was beautiful, the Cinque Terre is amazing! Thank you for a nice day!

Super super super, les loueurs sont vraiment très gentil ils expliquent bien comment tout fonctionne ce que l’on a le droit de faire ou non, ils sont toujours prêt à répondre à nos questions par téléphone. Petit point négatif la zone des 5 terres n’est pas accessible avec ce bateau.
