    Full of anticipation we went on the road to the magical Bleu Cave where Captain Good Life, us would tour with his boat. We already had many good stories about him his location and tour heard. After we had parked our car, we could only marvel at the garbage dump between the shrubs to the Santa Cruz Beach. Not soon afterwards it became receipt. The whimpering sound of the total neglected scraggy watchdog jerky on the short chain in the burning midday sun, went through the bone. In the wind free stones area behind the House knew the dog no Board. He could only pitiful whine from the heat and thirst. We bought water quickly and only after we had given the dog 5 liters of water, which he drank from the bottle he was greedy on what calmer. On the rubbish dump lay a table and have that on packed and moved to thank the dog that went under. Next, we wanted to actually already gone. But we wanted to captain Good life to speak to how well yet with that dog. But unfortunately Captain Good life was nowhere to be seen. The environment was one big mess. Everywhere plastic waste parrots in rusty cages another dog full of character. There came a boy at us and asked if we wanted to. Still, we wanted to meet with Captain Good Life so we had to pay 70 guilders. I reluctantly stepped into the boat.. and what turned out to be.. the young boy started the engine and enter with us and 7 other tourists on board off. Captain Good Life was nowhere to be seen. The boy, we estimate him around 13 years old went full throttle ahead. Arrived at the Bleu Cave he let everyone jump overboard, and I also, then the engine started I got scared and said ' go your way '. ' Yes ' he said ' I need to look '. I understood him not good and climbed as fast as I could back on board and he run full throttle away my husband and all 7 tourists behind us letting in water. We take the corner and my perplexity grew. I asked him where he was going! But again I understood him. I found this totally irresponsible to so far away. He wasn't going to return that I almost exploded and demanded that he would go back. I yelled at the boy that I found this completely unacceptable. Which he vaguely nodded and finally the helm omgooide. When we came to the bend were the tourists and my husband already back swimming. Girls were fast to swimming because they were stung by a jellyfish. Everyone on board quickly through a difficult swim ladder. The weather hit to the wind became stronger. And while we carry back the boy three more girls picked up on in a kayak who came forward by the wind flow and not. He tied them to the boat. I had had it and wanted to go home. And yes of course hit the canoe. Such amateurism. The boy dropped us off on the beach after which we could come by the waves is difficult to Board. We have to this trip a sense of unease, insecurity and degrading animal suffering as a result. Think twice before you start on the beautiful tourist, chats this Captain Bath Life.

    Extremely polluted Beach, at the so-called Captain Goodlife is a gang! Aquarium with water where you no longer can see through it. Dog with hundreds of sign. Parrots at all base. If you are here for the Blue Room go, beware the jellyfish! They may not always be but we were not warned and very much stabbed at the entrance, no fine visit! Advice: spend your time on many nicer and cleaner spots on the island.

    ST Cruz is the ugliest beach we have seen. The only good one is from the vo there comes to the Blue Room Cave. On this beach, there is more local people who visit it, we were told that the DIebstahlquote is very high there, so beware.
