To start, we got invited to another island before that the tour started, it was nice, we got the opportunity to see the island for 2 hours and then they picked us up to continue the tour. They took care of providing information about every place in different languages. There were many options for drinks all the time. The food was good. We saw the dolphins, but they didn't come so close.

Everything was well organized, the food tasted very good, the captain tried very hard to show us the dolphins live several times, which he succeeded in doing. Great explanation from the tour guide about the islands and the nature reserve, as well as the buildings on it.

An unforgettable attraction! Delicious food (fish menu - grilled mackerel, vege menu - grilled vegetables), beautiful sunset ❤️ it was great to see dolphins in their natural habitat! The crew is very nice :) I recommend!

The boat trip was really great, great food too! (take the fish) We got to see dolphins and the unlimited drinks were also very nice!
