The boat was beautiful and well looked after, hand sanitizer on board. We saw both dolpins and whales, it was very relaxing and stopped off for a swim in a calm part of the sea. Down side was the snorkel kit was not professional but more brought for kids.

Very nice relaxed ride unfortunately the animals themselves are only visited once, after that no further attempt to see which one chosen. Very nice place to swim and there were free drinks on the board.

Very pleasant boat tour, great catamaran, small group, without loud music and party atmosphere, seen dolphins.

Very friendly crew. Very informative. Relaxing Clean Might be worth taking some refreshments with you

Very pleasant trip with extremely friendly and knowledgeable guides
