This was a great experience and I would do it again but some things were so different I actually came back here to check I had booked the right company, which I had done and used the online chat service...so I knew really.
So positive things- Mel and Anne were friendly and great sources of information. The area is beautiful, the falls unfortunately have been dry (non-existent) for 3 years now. The water was warm and very clear. There was no 'rush' to finish on allotted time. We had fresh made ham and cheese rolls and drinks offered freely including beer and cava ad soft drinks. We all had a great time.

However negative things were all about expectations of what is on the website and what then wasn't actually true.
It says on the home page -and this is a copy of exact wordings in quotes

'The Boat also comes with a fully shaded canopy area to avoid the hot sun as and when it’s needed' - there is a small canopy that mostly shades where Ann and Mel sit. Not the front or rear of the boat, important consideration if in hot sunny weather and you need shade.

'there is also a fresh water shower on board for your use along with complimentary snorkelling equipment during your trip if you’re feeling adventurous?'- no fresh water shower evident or offered and when we enquired about snorkelling equipment was told there wasn't any. Luckily we had bought some from home including some pool noodles for the children for confidence in the water. However with no snorkel vest one refused to go in the water at all.

'There is a very comfortable front and rear lounge seating, a sturdy table' - there was no table at any point and the front seats cannot be described as a lounge area. The boat seemed very much to be a different one to the ones in the photo and certainly smaller with less facilities.

'a small bow diving platform with two easy-on-easy-off deep water boat ladders for those that wish to swim from the boat' again not the same as seen in some of the photos (e.g. phot 46 of 47 in the gallery) and certainly only one ladder which even the young 9 year old struggled to get out of the water with let alone older ones amongst us.

'On-board we also have a fresh water shower for your use if you wish to wash off the salt water after an exhilarating swim in the Mediterranean'- as already advised not on the boat we were on.

'There’s no need to bring beach towels along with you as we also provide complimentary large clean fresh towels for your use during your trip'- no towels offered / provided for our trip at all

So all in all whilst the experience was good I left feeling as if I hadn't got what I had booked for and we didn't enjoy the day as much as we would have done if everything promised had been there.

A big thank you to Mel and Ann for a fanatic enjoyable 4 hour boat trip.

Nothing was off the menu - with swimming wherever we fancied - a fanatic tour of the Torrox and Nerja cost and Cava / Beers and the most amazing and tasty sandwiches.

Despite only having less then 30 minutes of our trip left when our 8 year old son asked to have a snorkel and swim - Mel was fantastic and obliged.

I cannot rate Costa Boat Trips highly enough and the website chat was timely and excellent too.

We will be back next year and another shout out to Andy who was excellent during our initial enquiry.

We had a lovely personal trip with Mel and Anne. We learnt a lot about the local area as we navigated along the coast. They were both super friendly and knowledgeable. We had lots of opportunities to snorkel and swim. There were 6 of us and I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone visiting the area.

We booked a trip with Mel as our captain & Anne our co-host. What a fantastic 4 hour trip it was. From first communication I was completely at ease. Booked via Internet. Met Mel at marina as planned, everything you could need to enhance the day was thought of. From drinks to lunch, to towels, to great conversation. Honestly if a private trip is you're preference then i cannot recommend them highly enough. Thanks guys and we'll book again in November or December

Fantastic trip!! Mel & his partner were amazing hosts.
Completely different aspect to the coast line, punctuated by informative, knowledgeable tales of the locality.
Would definitely recommend, the beers were very welcome & diving into crystal clear waters shall stay with us for a long time.
Well done & thank you.

Captain Mel and First Mate Anne were fantastic! We had our family of 5 (3 kids aged 10-15), and all of our kids said it was the highlight of their week! Beautiful ride up the coast to see the shoreline, Balcon de Europa, the Moro Beach area (the Falls were unfortunately dry due to water shortage, but still beautiful). We anchored in a small bay so we could swim and snorkel. All gear, nice fluffy towels, tasty sandwiches, and bottomless Cava included. Mel and Anne are wonderful historians and hosts. Never felt rushed, and in fact, we ended up swimming for longer than the allotted 4 hours!

Amazing! I can't recommend this trip highly enough.

Mel & Anne were both such great hosts with excellent knowledge of the local area. The trip takes in some fantastic sights along the way, with plenty of opportunities to stop for a swim.

Anne kept our glasses very well topped up, and Mel was kind enough to take some pictures of our group & messages them to me afterwards.

This trip is an absolute must if you're ever in the area. 3 hours went far too quickly so we will definitely be back for more.

Thanks Mel & Anne!

We have spent a wonderful afternoon sailing along the coast, while Mel was beating the waves and Ann was offering food and drinks. It has been one of the most enjoyable moment of our Spanish holiday and Mel helped us discover the beauty of the Costa del Sol.
Would certainly repeat this experience the next time

Mel and Ann were excellent hosts. Great to see Nerja and other towns from the sea and opportunities to swim and snorkel. Boat was great for the 3 of us with towels, food and drinks - including Cava included. Highly recommend.
