Excellent trip. Efficient to board and get going. The design of the seats was a bit ungainly but you got used to them pretty quick. The tour of the caves was very good and it was good that we got the opportunity to take pictures. By far and away the best part was speeding out to sea and getting to see the dolphins! This was the highlight of the trip and an amazing experience. The guide was very good and I felt safe at all times. Would definitely recommend as it was a great way to see two wonderful sights in one trip!

The most amazing experience. Would 110% recommend! I nearly cried when I saw the dolphins. The caves were so beautiful, our tour guide was amazing and gave us insightful information and facts about the caves and landmarks. I would recommend wearing long sleeves as it gets VERY cold! 10/10 experience.

Muy buena experiencia. Vimos varios bancos de delfines y la visita a las cuevas muy interesante. Importante: en la lancha vas a bastante velocidad y acabas empapado, fuimos en manga corta y acabamos congelados a pesar de ser verano. Conveniente llevar un impermeable o algo de ropa larga para tapar el viento.
