There is also a multi-lingual experienced guide onboard to explain the different species that you will be seeing. Each passenger also receives a dive certificate, so you can prove and show off the fact that you have enjoyed this once in a lifetime experience. Medieval Night Head to San Miguel Castle for a night packed with medieval fun. Watch knights joust on horseback for the hand of the fair maiden. A fantastic night for the whole family to get involved in. On arrival you cross the drawbridge and are met by the Earl and Countess. Their minion will show you to your seats and allocate you a colour and this colour represents the side that you will support for the evening. Cheering your knight on is completely encouraged, the louder the better. You will indulge in a three-course meal with beverages during the show before moving to the bar for the post-tournament party.
