Everything was well prepared. The very punctual and friendly driver picked us up at our hotel. We then arrived on the beach where we were welcomed by the captain who took us to swim with the dolphins and then go scubadiving. We could have a moment of rest on the boat with local fruits. Very nice experience.

The tour was perfectly organized. Great experience with the dolphins, snorkeling, staying on a big sandbar. BUT: The booking page contains incorrect information. The tour lasts 6 hours instead of the specified 3 hours. The tour was only booked for us, without other passengers. The pickup location options on the map are also incorrect. They pick you up from anywhere in Stonetown. The map entry where the boat starts is also wrong. Correct: North of Matemwe Beach. Who is responsible for the presentation of the booking page on Getyourguide? Conclusion: Everything was much nicer than described on the booking page.
