We were greeted well and directed to the boat, staff were very knowledgeable and friendly on board. Refreshments and toilets were available. The sightings whales and domphins were amazing, something my children will never forget. Stafg also pointed out in a book which species we had seen on our trip with information about each. Would definately book again as such value for money!

It was just great. We saw a humpback whale which is very rare in this region and a Bryde's whale. We also saw several dolphins.

The guides were also very nice

Despite the gray weather, the sea was calm enough for a dolphin watching tour to take place and with a bit of luck we even spotted a pod of dolphins and watched them until they swam away on their own. On the way back, an expert explained which animals had been seen with an illustrated folder and answered questions.
