The beginning was difficult, we would be picked up directly in Palma and the bus had no signs that meant we had to ask every bus for ages. The tour is highly recommended. The guide is really great tells everything you should know. You have to see hell really great, will definitely book again, can only recommend it to anyone where Mallorca is.

It was great! Luckily we got on the boat at 8:15 am because the people on the boat made it really nice. I would recommend it but only the 8:15 boat without many people you can move freely always has a seat and you can also see the dolphins well.

Superb experience, the crew is very welcoming. The buffet is suitable for vegetarians. We were able to see dolphins very closely. The swimming spot is just MA-GNI-QUE. SANGRIA!!!

We went at 8am. We saw loads of dolphins! We took our two small children and 2 hours was just long enough before they got bored. Lovely morning and lovely team onboard

Well received. Top to see the dolphins. Little swim before going home ... great
