Start time was prompt, the crew were very friendly and spoke English, French, German and Portuguese. The caves are stunning and best seen from the water. As promised the crew found us DOLPHINS, the whole experience was marvellous and well worth the money. Also worth a look is My Cafe next to the exit.

Fantastic ride! On the way, we saw and entered several caves and heard great and fabulous stories about some of them. On the way back, we went out to sea to try to see dolphins and / or whales. We were not successful, but it was worth the try! The crew is 1000 note! Very attentive and funny! I hope to repeat the tour in the summer!
