we were disappointed with this trip as we have been on much, much better catamaran trips. The trip consisted sitting on a boat for four and a half hours with just a twenty minutes stop for a swim. The food was awful.

My group booked a 5 hour cruise, the boat was very busy meaning that there were less benches (and shade) for everyone. The crew were helpful and explained what was going on in a number of languages however their tannoy/speakers let them down greatly as it was pretty muffled, we could only pick up the odd world. Unlike on others... More

First the bad bits: We arrived for a 3 hr cruise at 9.40am as instructed and allowed to board at 10am. However latecomers were accommodated which meant we had to wait until nearly 10.30am to leave. We ended up with a 2.5 hr cruise...lunch was a plan sandwich of ham and cheese followed by pineapple and peaches (tinned), which was... More

We were so lucky to see a pod of pilot whales escorting a humpback out of their territory that everything else about the day was quickly forgotten. The bad, Being picked up at 8:40, arriving at 9am and not getting on the boat till 10!!! Ridiculous. Being told there would be 25 people on the boat and finding over 60... More

Really good day out and not too expensive we paid 25euro for 3 hours which we got a free meal, free drinks, we got to see the pilot whales and the dolphins and then we anchored of in a bay to have a swim and then finally arrived back at the puerto colon. Great if you have kids as well.

I had arranged a short holiday for my sister’s 18th birthday and decided to celebrate the special occasion by taking a boat trip – what a mistake! Having been promised an “amazing” experience – sun, snorkelling, sangria,” fantastic” lunch, "guaranteed" dolphins, we skipped down to the marina with great anticipation. However my anticipation soon turned to apprehension after being kept... More
