We saw lots of dolphins!! Pretty much instantly we we’re met with a big group of dolphins who we followed for about 45 minutes. After that however the trip was slightly boring. A very relaxing trip on the water but the staff could have done a lot more to make this experience more exciting. I expected some facts and knowledge of the islands to be told to us. Overall a good trip though. Definitely prepare for both hot and cold weather. When the wind hits it’s very cold but still take your suncream!

Me and my friend came for her birthday and I can say this was quite a relaxing day. As we got further from shore it did start to get a bit windy and the sea did begin to get a tad bit choppy, but it was all part of the experience. Sadly we didn’t get to see any dolphins, but the journey around the island made up for it. The boat was a lot more full than expected but it wasn’t too much of a problem unless you’re looking for a more private tour. The crew pretty much left us all to it after introducing the trip, but still tried to make the rest of the journey fun towards the drive back to the island.
