This was a great experience for a birthday treat! Klein Curacao is an atmospheric, fascinating island. It's remote, uninhabited and we loved it - the ghostly remains of the lighthouse and shipwrecks on one side, and the beauty of a pristine beach on the other. We're not great swimmers or snorkellers - so I wondered if this excursion would work for us, but it really did. Mermaid Boat Trips provide plenty of shade in a decent beach hut, and sunloungers to laze about on and read. They also include a fabulous BBQ buffet lunch and breakfast. Great salads, grilled meat, fruit. Really delicious. As other reviewers have said though the trip out to the island is not for the faint-hearted. It's a good two hour trip and the sea can be very choppy - I wondered about going without breakfast because the start was so early, but was glad I did! You need good sea legs .. or at least good seasickness tablets! The crew were great though, caring and helpful ... The trip home, though, was mild and calm - lovely actually, as we sailed round the coast of Curacao, and enjoyed beer and fresh pineapple, and a chat with Opa - we think he's the Mermaid's owner, and a charming, funny man. Would really recommend this trip. Tot Ziens! Masha Danki!
