    After a rather disappointing whale watching on a large catamaran the day before, I booked this tour at short notice. Yes, it's more expensive than others, but it's really worth it. You get the feeling that the guides are really competent and they also exude their enthusiasm for these animals. Despite the rather high "hit rate", it was very difficult to find a group of whales or dolphins that afternoon, but we didn't give up and in the end we were successful and found a group of dolphins. It is nice here that you are in a small group and so everyone has the chance to ask questions and have a good look at the animals. Absolutely to suggest!
