Such a well organized and stress free trip. All instructions arrived day before the trip, picked up on time, the company gives a little leaflet about type of whales and dolphins and asks to keep your cup for the whole trip in order not to waste plastic. It would be a disappointment not to see any animals but after an hour we finally seen dolphins which was absolutely amazing as they were swimming just next to us. Everyone was very helpful and nice. Would definitely recommend

Was a Bit sceptical since these organized group trips can sometimes not be so good but the trip really was great fun and the hosts were excellent. Both had a fantastic time despite my girlfriend feeling a bit sea sick! Only minor downside would be that the trip said max four participants but there were actually 8 on our trip - although everybody was a great laugh and the more people actually made the trip more enjoyable we thought! Well worth the money.

Had a wonderful time the staff were extremely friendly and the trip super relaxing. I enjoyed the snorkelling and seeing the island from the sea. overall definitely recommend this trip!!

A wonderful trip! The guides are extremely friendly and responsible. The boat is absolutely gorgeous. The complimentary food and drink is an absolute plus! Recommend it for sure!!

A charming sailing boat with most fun and friendly hosts!
