It was a nice teip by boat with fantastic sights and we saw various dolphins .people in charge of the trip were professional and always polite.
The tour in 2009 was awesome ... in 2021 it was another great experience. Even if you didn't see any dolphins, the catamaran trip would be worth every penny.
Excellent experience. The captain did not stop until he found the dolphins, extending the trip up to more than 4 hours. Highly recommended
Everything went well! From booking to monitoring on the boat and enough time with the dolphins
I really enjoyed the tour, and I've already recommended it to my friends.
