Really great experience, even with choppy, cold water. Exciting to see the seals up close and getting the opportunity to see a big stingray. Experienced and professional crew, and well allotted on board Cafe. My only complaint would be that there was no signage or directions when we arrived and, although the invitation specified arriving early, we left late.

Awesome dolphin experience. Seals was good but strong current and a lot of habibi’s on jetskis bubbling up the water so snorkeling was tough. Great boat and great staff with a bar for a beer on the way back in can’t ask for a better day out

The Staff were so nice and helpful when answering questions, the constructor Carl tried so hard to find sea dragons and found some and made sure everyone got the chance to see it, the tour was amazing would definitely recommend

Great day out. All staff really good and helpful. It was very enjoyable.

Was awesome! Great weather, great crew members!! And great experience
