Great morning watching dolphins!

Great morning with a very enthousiastic guide. A lot of knowledge and hè rook all the time for us to find the dolphins as it took a little bit longer. We saw 2 beautifull groups of dolphins jumping and swimming in front of the boat. Our little boy was the captain for a little while, very sweet. Thanks for the great experience! Regards Daan, Ellen and Joep from Holland

It has been an amazing trip and Alfredo and Rui were excellent guides. We have seen so many Dolphins and received a lot of information from the two. Next time here, I will be doing that again.

A fabulous day out! We were really lucky to not only see dolphins, but also sun fish, sharks and even Orcas! Our guides were very knowledgeable, and gave us loads of fascinating information to enhance our experience. We would recommend it to anyone.

Would recommend this trip to anybody

This was a brilliant trip. The two guides were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. As we hadn't seen any dolphins initially they lengthened the trip by an hour so that we got to see several pods of common dolphins. The size of the boat meant that we felt really close to them, while the guides ensured that we could see them whilst being respectful of them. It was just an amazing experience.

An amazing time with passionate biologists who have at heart to make us understand how fragile and beautiful how ocean is. Our kids got to learn a lot about dolphins and various species. We highly recommend THIS way of doing tourism in a small group and a respectful way. Merci

Saw common dolphins during this trip. Was pretty amazing, they come up close to the boat! No whales though but was a good experience. *PRO TIP* Remember to take something if you get sea sickness like ginger. A poor girl on the trip got seasick and could not do much afterwards. Also sunscreen and sunglasses will help.

Happy dolphin tour

The tour definitely worth it. The guides were very friendly and were happy to share their knowledge. We saw 2-3 groups of dolphins. We could have looked further and further but at some point the tour was unfortunately over. Any time again.
