Great guides, great fun! Strenuous enough for an older person of average fitness. Felt like I was in good hands for the entire trip. If you suffer from seasickness maybe take something for it before heading off. Not a lot of dolphins sighted but being on the water out at sea for the morning was beautiful in itself & the surf back to the beach a highlight!

Didn't see any dolphins. But saw a whale breach out of water a few times! SO COOL It was super cool to be out so far in the ocean. Very exhilarating. I honestly couldn't stop smiling and laughing the whole time. The lads that took us out were funny, nice and very helpful in any situation. Look after us very well. Definitely be back for our free trip.. WOOOOOO

It was great experience battling the waves! We did not get to see dolphins in action but we were given the dolphin guarantee that we can come back for free. The staff are commendable they are professional and helpful. I wish to come back in Byron and do it again! Awesome experience.
