Lovina: Sunrise Dolphin Watching Small Group Tour

2. Lovina: Sunrise Dolphin Watching Small Group Tour

Spend a morning with the ocean’s most joyful creatures on a memorable sunrise dolphin watching tour. Capture striking photos of the sun creeping up from the horizon and glimpse dolphins break the waves as they swim in their pods.  Start with a very early wakeup at 3 AM. This is because dolphins are most active in the early morning. The experienced guide knows the habits and patterns of the dolphins inside out, meaning you’ll have the best possible chance of viewing them in their natural habitat. After your traditional Balinese boat tour, stop for a spot of breakfast before continuing to one of Bali’s most iconic spots. Handara Gate is a fantastic alternative to the popular Gates of Heaven, which usually has a 2-hour queue for photos. These equally attractive gates are a hidden gem, thought by the Balinese to separate the spiritual and physical world.

What people are saying about Lovina

Absolutely to recommend! It was an unforgettable experience for us. We were picked up in Ubud at 3:30 am and arrived after a two-hour drive. Then we went straight to the boat so as not to miss the sunrise. With us there were about 20-30 other boats looking for dolphins, but that doesn't bother us, because the dolphins keep changing their route and you sometimes have them all to yourself. Snorkeling costs extra (everywhere), but it's all worth the money (200k IDR ~ 13-14€ for us). Sometimes it is very exhausting, but we saw up to 25 dolphins underwater at the same time. That was a real experience! The waterfall is a nice stopover, but not a highlight for us since there are so many in Bali. The temple is super beautiful and definitely worth seeing! All in all a really worthwhile tour :) We were back at our hotel around 12:30-1:00 p.m. Thank you Benny and we would definitely do it again!

Overall a fantastic trip. We saw hundreds of dolphins. The tour guide made sure we got the front seats of the boat. He went out of his way to make sure we had an excellent day. Told us lots of information. He went above and beyond with taking photos. He took us to a lovely buffet lunch and even added a trip to the coffee plantation at our request. We have since organised more trips with our guide from this booking.

We were on a Dolphin tour with Pande on 9/11/2022 . It was a real great experience. He is so kind and has a lot of interesting things to tell. + He made some great photos for us at the temple. If we would be in Ubud longer we would have definitely booked another tour with him. 5 stars!!!

It was about a 3 hour drive from Ubud to Lovina Beach but well worth the money. Our driver was very friendly and helpful.

super quiet, super early, super chill, super worth it!
