Swimming with the dolphins was great fantastic. You could also take the ferry afterwards to Graffion there we used the lunch buffet but that was very disappointing, cold and little choice and the sandwiches were very dry. After that, however, there was a bit of time left to snorkel because the boat left again. Back at the dolphin program we ordered our photos and you get them via a link. Tip before you go on the ferry you have to check in and you will be offered all kinds of pictures we paid for the pictures because the dolphin pictures are very expensive so this was not too bad. Graffion is very beautiful but far too little time for a pity because we wanted to snorkel we had paid for that too.
