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!

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.

Very well organized, only downside it must be understood that you must put the full return of the boat, for half of the full count 100 €.

Great way to see Cinque Terre!!

The entire trip was made so easy, from where to meet to pick up the boat, how to operate and where to go as well as the drop off.

I give it a 10 out of 10

Was great! Also swimming in the quiet places where we throw anchor!
