Overall rating

based on 5 reviews

The tour lasted 3 hours, we saw a lot of dolphins that passed very close to the catamaran, the staff was very happy and friendly, there was a stop for a deep sea dive, it was an incredible experience, it is much more special to see dolphins in their habitat natural than closed in an aquarium.

Pleasant outing in a catamaran with superb weather just a pity that tourists do not respect the rules of the navigator when it is said that on the ropes it is 6 people maximum that does not mean 14 people but as always tourists believe they are allowed everything make them pay for the service

It was an unforgettable morning, the children loved it! Certainly one of their best childhood's memories! Couldn't recommend it more! Vertente Natural respects nature, the guide was very knowledgeable and kind, an unforgettable expierence!

The excursion was great. We saw dolphins :-) The directions in the Get your Guide were wrong! Meeting is on the other side of the building, or directly at the harbor behind the market hall with the church tower clock.

Great trip with knowledgeable tourguides. We were lucky that the dolphins came right up to the boat. Great experience!
