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.
I ordered my tickets online, which was a quick and easy process. We had to wear masks on board which is to be expected in the current situation. It took us some time to find the dolphins but it was worth the wait! A pod of about 40 spotted dolphins, which was wonderful to see and experience their company.
It was a great few hours, we were really lucky with the wildlife we saw as well. Lovely little boat, the team are passionate about what they do and it was a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Great stuff
Experienced and friendly crew. Very informative about the sea life around the island and how they are respected. Never a guarantee but we were lucky to see dolphins and whales (including a baby whale).
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.
