We had the best experience! The driver was punctual and nice, he took us to the port where we met our tour guide! Khalid was very professional we followed the dolphins for like 40 mins and saw so many of them. We then stopped to do some snorkeling and managed to swim with turtles! Khalid made sure we saw them by directing us from the boat. Such an unforgettable experience, definitely recommended!

I loved the trip - pick up was on time. Island was lovely. First snorkelling spot had such rich marine life - saw turtles as well and so many colourful fishes. Then, we moved to 2nd snorkelling spot + beach. Packed food was offered that was sufficient and well thought through. Overall, great trip!

It was really awesome! Saw a lot of dolphins & even a sea turtle. They took our wishes into consideration... and since I had a hotel near the airport, I even had a private return transport :) highly recommended! Thanks to the great team :)

To do absolutely! The captain was great and the excursion awesome. After an hour at sea we found dolphins, by the hundred! It was magical! Then we did free snorkeling in a superb cove (Turtles, beautiful fish...). It's faultless

Really a lot of dolphins + turtles. Very good tour !
