Took this cruise yesterday. Nobody asked named or for tickets so we could have just walked on for free. The tour actually takes you a very short distance and you sit out in the water off crowded beaches filled with Lidos that you could just drive to. We were never offered a snorkel, masks only. The explanation. Was entirely in Italian and English never offered until we asked for an English written guide which we were then given. The snacks were at the end were okay but nothing provided for celiac (gluten free) people. We had two of our group of four that were celiac. I had been asked this on the tour registration so thought maybe it would be accommodated. This tour is a pleasant enough boat ride with 45 other people but certainly not worth $50 per person!

Good morning, we have all the names and the exact number of persons who are going to participate in the minicruise, who have already paid and who have not (that have to pay on board after registration), so you can't come on board without paying! The short distance is a 3 hour minicruise, visiting all the peculiarities out and in the water of the protected area of Porto Cesareo (lidos are not among these, even you can see fotm the catamaran but Saracen towers, islands, the lagoon, Roman columns, the statue of Holy Mary under the water yes, like in the written guide of 3 pages we gave you)! Unfortunately, we cannot provide food for celiac people but we were not informed about this in order to reply. The price is the lowest nearby, and the best in value for money. Regards
