It was a very nice experience. First of all, I had to consider whether the dolphins should not be pushed too hard. The captain tried to turn the ship so that you could see her well without pushing her or getting too close. Many small boats, on the other hand, were very aggressive towards the dolphins. We always saw the same group of dolphins with young animals, at some point they swam straight towards the ship and kept jumping out of the water. I can only recommend the excursion. The crew was very friendly and tried hard.

We went with them to the delphin excursion the day before this trip and we enjoy every minute. This excursion is as described with the exception that there is no place to swim in the cities that we visit unless you take a taxi to the other side of the city to a nice beach. Other than that we enjoy the food, fish or chicken/sausage plate with a great salad, juice and some kind of donut as dessert. All the crew were very happy, and treat us like family. I definitely would like return.

Very great trip to Rovinj and the fjord. Especially by the attentive team of the boat, there was a delicious lunch for both meat lovers and vegetarians, there was also fruit and there were unlimited drinks. We would book again anytime! Very nice crew!

The guides are super fun and we had a great time on board !

It was a very good tour. Food was good. Guide was great.
