It was run by Dutch young-adults who were lots of fun and very accommodating. The boat lacked seating space outside, but there was plenty of spaces where you could lean up and crouch. Of course you could seat inside too. All drinks, including the rum punch, were included.
The public transportation is easily accessible and relatively inexpensive. If you don't mind playing second fiddle to the resort guests on the island, the beach experience is great too. Just be aware that most permanent structures on the beach are there for resort guests. You will be told what is available to you and you need to respect that.
