We first went out to sea to look for dolphins. We saw at least 10 animals! Some of them even came very close to the boat and swam through below. After a short stop for a swim in a great bay, we continued to the many caves. It was an amazing experience. The boat was steered through or into a number of caves. The guys on the boat were very friendly and with a lot of humor at work. We highly recommend the tour!

A great excursion in which we managed to see many dolphins, completed with Angela's explanations in four languages and the good handling of the boat by Luis and David who gave a lot of emotion to the driving and got us into all the caves. We had a great time and I totally recommend it.
