The guides were very friendly and explained quite a few details to us. We were not lucky and saw only seals, no dolphins. But the trip in itself was worth it. Super exciting waves!

Excellent. Lucky to see masses of dolphins and our guide v informative

A great outing - not just for tourists but something locals should do too. Beautiful scenery and so lucky to see so many dolphins. Could you arrange for the sea to be a bit less bumpy next time?!
