I recommend it. it was relaxed, and the weather was nice too. we saw dolphins for a couple of minutes, and the crew was kindly. The only recommendation I would give to the crew is to stop using plastic cups when serving drinks, that plastic will leater go to the garbage. why not use cups that you can later clean. Be more green, it will help the world

We saw Pilot Whales quite quickly then two species of dolphin and a turtle. The staff went out of their way to point out the animals and tell us information on them. On the return we sailed close to the air making an interesting ride back. The experience cost us 5 euros less than the price for a similar experience advertised by our hotel.

Really enjoyed the dolphin watching and we did indeed see dolphins. My only complaint is that it's not summer season (April) so the booking information excluded swimming with dolphins, which was fine, except the boat did end up pulling well away from the dolphin area and allowed people to swim anyway nearer the shore. My issue being that I would have preferred to stay in the area of the dolphins and watch them rather than watching other people swim.
