The trip was on time and we saw quite a number of dolphins. The boat captain/guide knew the dolphin area well and where to find them and was very informative with his commentry. I also enjoed watching his interaction with a very young child and the child's mother. All in all it was a very enjoyable outing.

The tour was well planned and well carried out. consideration was given to safety of passengers as well as providing a fun and informative experience. we took off on time and I complement the crew and passengers for actively displaying respectful behaviour. Although I do not enjoy being surrounded by water, I felt safe during the tour as I felt that the person in charge was trustworthy and in control. Seeing the dolphins up close in their natural environment and being themselves was a truly amazing experience. An experience not to be missed.

Went on the midday tour. The boat is covered blocking out the sun and the wind is cool even on a hot day. Initially saw 2-3 dolphins however around an hour into the cruise was surrounded by approximately 20 adults and babies. Would DEFINITELY do this cruise again and recommend it to anyone.
