We chose the 3 hour trip from Porto Colon, and compared to other boats this catamaran was quite small which suited us fine, as it wasn't packed with people. There were plenty of seats either in the shade or in the sun, or you can sit on a netted area at the front. It was a lovely sunny day in... More

went out on an afternoon trip, all the staff were great but the captain was disgustingly rude. we were a group of 8 friends, and one member of the crew came and spoke to us about the rules and other information. Then 5 minutes later told everyone else over the microphone, no one could hear much of what she was... More

Was ok but not as good as others we've been on. When we went there were around 60 people and I don't think I would have enjoyed it if it was full so maybe something to consider in peak season, you'd be crammed on like sardines. Did see dolphins and whales.

I know you can't guarantee seeing whales and dolphins on these tours, but we were exceptionally lucky - no dolphins but pilot whales galore, swimming close enough to make you feel like you could touch them! The boat wasn't overcrowded and everyone could easily get a spot around the rails so clear sights, videos, pictures of whales were had by... More

We took the 3hr excursion off the coast to see whales and dolphins. The bus collected us in town and drooped us at the port. On arrival we were told that the price was 6 euros less - bonus! Every group was made to have photos taken which I said would just be a rip off. However, although they were... More

My partner booked this 3hr excursion so I had no idea what to expect. But I was very pleased with what we experienced. The catamaran is very spacious and can hold alot of people very comfortably. The crew are very lively and talkative. The trip itself was amazing, the sea is very rough but it made for a fantastic experience.... More

We took our time in chosing the right company for our dolphin trip. That was a very good choice, spacous, comfortable even when all aboard we had planty space for our self. The crew friendly and proffesional. Never promissed anything but we managed to see dolphins and whales. Very good value for the price.
