The day came out cloudy and a sea full of waves. Everything predicted that we were not going to see anything and that it would be a horrible trip.....but nothing was further from reality. The pilot and biologist did their best to find dolphins. and they got it. more than 50 "played" with the zodiac and the zodiac played with us with the waves. Between jump and jump, and jumping dolphins it was hilarious. highly recommend with them. Even the incredible boat back from San Lorenzo thanks to its crew. Congratulations. keep going

Wonderful excursion, very good the pilot of the boat, very good the biologist who accompanied us. The very comfortable boat, suitable for anyone. We saw dozens and dozens of dolphins following and playing with the boat. Excursion recommended for everyone, an experience to do absolutely. Good good good

They worked a lot, because it seemed that we were not going to see anything and they persisted until we did. We found a pod of dolphins and another of pilot whales and in the end there was also a swim, despite the fact that we spent almost three hours in the sea. It was great!!!!

Professional people. Whale watchers on the coast. Guarantee for dolphins and whales. Comfortable boat that cuts through the waves without any problems at an average of 40 km per hour. It is also fine for people with a weak back

Tutto è stato impeccabile. Esperienza emozionante che consiglio a chiunque!
