A very enjoyable experience, the staff and crew were fantastic, we saw flying fish, dolphins and a whale whilst out on the water, although it took a little time to find them, the crew worked very hard to find them, Highly recommended. The boat is wheelchair accessible, but not for the faint hearted, they have to lift the chair onto the gang-plank which is just wide enough to navigate across, then lift you onto the boat, once on the boat things do improve. There is a ramped entrance into the cabin area, but no designated slot for a wheelchair, but they do accomodate and make the whole experience very pleasant. If you are able to walk a little then this trip is accessible, if not then I would suggest going to Puerto Rico port and checking the access out before booking. I turned up in my compact motorised wheelchair, which is rather heavy and they did manage to get me safely onto the boat, they went above and beyond, but it was a little nerve wraking.
Yep :) Well worth every penny. We got lucky and we saw dolphins and whales. Got some great pictures and video. And they do try to educate you about the different species but maybe a microphone and a or a head system so it makes things a bit better to understand? But altogether well worth the 2 hours after we picked the others up at Anti beach first. :)
I loved how passionate the team running the boat were. They stressed that the the animals were free and wild, and we weren't disturbing them. They even pulled out an old fish net from the sea while we were sailing. It showed how much they cared about the ocean and the animals in it, which is a big thing for me!
Fantastic trip, lovely boat with toilets and bar on board. We saw turtles, flying fish, whales and lots of dolphins who were feeding and following the boat. The crew were really friendly and helpful. A really great trip that I would highly recommend!
It was a great experience we saw loads of dolphins and the crew were great and helpful. Totally worth the money.
