AMAZING!!! Cant reccomend enough. not only did we swim with dolphins but we saw beautiful whales that swam right under the boat. our guide was a marine biologist and was very informed. It is amazing seeing these creatures in their natural habitat and the guides make sure to do what is best for the animals. this is something I will never forget!

We liked a lot

Although for us the attraction was to swim with dolphins, that's why we chose this tour and not others. We stayed a long time until we found the dolphins and we saw them but we didn't swim. We were surprised that they did not explain to us until we asked why we had not swum with them. For the rest everything very well Thank you Mercedes
