Very good trip, staff were informative and we did manage to see dolphins. Not right up to the boat but we did see them clearly swimming around and quite a few too.

Fantastic experience! The views were sensational along the coast and it was thrilling to see a huge pod of dolphins in the wild.

Take a nice boat ride to see the caves and dolphin watching if you are lucky. Lots of beautiful caves to see.
