Such a great experience and a super guide. Take your time and slow. This is South Africa. That's how our tour started. Without stress and completely relaxed. Sunscreen and a shower for afterwards were also provided for us. It was explained to us before we went to the open sea what we have to consider. And that's where it started. The guide told us a lot. Unfortunately we didn't see any dolphins. That was a bit of a shame, but you have no control over that. The tour was planned for 2 hours, but only lasted about 1 hour 15 minutes. The sea got rougher and so we had to turn back. For the remaining 45 minutes we would have been happy about an alternative or the tours have to start earlier. Otherwise it was a great experience. Gladly again :)

Worth EVERY penny! The three days were a wonderful experience for me with great adventures in a beautiful environment! Especially the small tour group (we were only three) and the great tour guide - Isaac. Thank you for the great discoveries during the trip. We ate wonderfully, saw beautiful animals and had a lot of fun!

The staff was super friendly, the tour was great fun, we saw dolphins and penguins.

Highly recommend! Got to see dolphins, seals and penguins.

The weather was perfect and the guides were friendly.
