    Excellent trip on the ocean with speed boat.We have seen many dolphins and two whales. Ana (Marine biologist) was a great guide.

    Great experience, everything was organised very well. We especially appreciated marine biologist, Dominique, who accompanied us and explained what species we see and what is interesting about them. We saw 3 groups of dolphins, very exciting!
