Very friendly and courteous crew. We were lucky with the weather and the visibility was great. With the number of participants of about 20 people, half the seats are free and you can move comfortably on the different levels. We had pilot whales and dolphins on the boat and were able to take great pictures. We particularly liked the efforts of the crew not to stress the animals. We had the feeling that the animals came curiously close to the boat. We were constantly offered snacks and drinks. The crew told us a lot about the local wildlife.

You really feel VIP. The crew is so thoughtful and friendly. The bar is always open. Numerous small delicacies are served and explained. The moments when you meet the dolphins are recorded for you with a professional camera. Even the towel after the final swim in the sea is held out. There was a great atmosphere on board. The dolphin sighting was an unforgettable experience. We would book the tour again!!!
