We were extremely lucky, and found a huge group of dolphins with juveniles and newborns - an amazing experience! After this we were still able to get close to a sperm whale for some minutes, before it dived back out of sight.

Wow - a really great experience with a super crew. We were a group of eight people and saw a lot of dolphins up close. I would definitely do it again, thank you very much!

The travel was very enjoyable, we saw some dolphins and whales and had a great time!

It was simply excellent. We’ve saw two species of dolphins and sperm whales.
