    It was an amazing experience, the guide was absolutely fantastic and went out of his way to make sure we saw whales and dolphins. The ride was epic with absolutely breathtaking experiences and landscapes. It's the first time we've had a skipper that was exceptional and did not feel pressured by the time frame as our skipper. Definitely will come back next year to do it again!

    Very friendly staff. We had a very nice chat. The boat tour was awesome ... we enjoyed it very much. Our skipper went to great lengths to keep an eye out for dolphins and luckily we saw some.
