    It was the most incredible and amazing experience! We saw quite a lot of dolphins which also came very close to the boat. In addition, we were shown caves and the rocks along the coast, got good information about nature from the captain and then cake and wine were served. My kids had a great time and are still talking about the trip. Thank you so much for the best experience!
