It was a very nice experience. First of all, I had to consider whether the dolphins should not be pushed too hard. The captain tried to turn the ship so that you could see her well without pushing her or getting too close. Many small boats, on the other hand, were very aggressive towards the dolphins. We always saw the same group of dolphins with young animals, at some point they swam straight towards the ship and kept jumping out of the water. I can only recommend the excursion. The crew was very friendly and tried hard.

It was a really nice experience. Our guide was super nice and took a lot of photos and videos of everyone. He let everyone free in for example jumping off the cliffs. He also made sure everyone was okay with kayaking. The cave was beautiful and we had a great time!
