Despite a very rainy day, the trip was very nice. Super nice crew and interesting information. Unfortunately we have not seen any dolphins. But there was a voucher for another boat ride. The next day in bright sunshine we went back to the boat and saw dolphins. Overall highly recommended!

It's very fun. The net that I put down is very exciting when I sail the boat. I can see many dolphins going out to sea. The scenery is beautiful all the way. I also see jellyfish on the Internet. Note: There is only a very narrow toilet on the boat to change into wet clothes. There is no life jacket on the better line before getting on the boat. It is difficult to play on the slide line. There is no place to bathe on the line!
