Great ride out on the catamaran. The dolphins were shy that day but we still go to see them, saw a beautiful mummy and baby spotted dolphin swimming next to each other as well. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff with good English. They told us about the dolphins and history of the coast of the island. Pointed out interesting sights along the way. And even suggested a nice place for dinner when I asked.
Given the current covid-19 situation we found this an excellent way to explore the area. Having a personal guide and travelling in a novel mode of transport only added to the overall experience. We both enjoyed the whole authentic tour but just sitting and chatting with a local and discussing the current situation/issues just brings it home that people are pretty much the same all over the world.
The staff at the kiosk and on board were great - it looked like we weren't going to find any whales but after an extensive effort, the team managed to find some. I'd definitely recommend.
A fantastic introduction to a small part of the island on our first full day here.
Excellent experience saw over 100 dolphins and saw a whale also swam in the sea.
