    Despite the rain on the island we had a dry trip with the zodiac out to sea. We first checked whether sailing was safe and whether animals could be seen and then we set off. We didn't stay completely dry, because a lot of water splashed into the boat, but when the 1st whale appeared we quickly forgot about it. We saw several whales and a large group of dolphins. Truly a great experience!

    Great experience! We could admire two species of dolphins right next to our boat. Well planned tour, friendly skippers and we were even told that if we didn't see any whales or dolphins we would get our money back. Very clear recommendation.
