Pre-booking this cruise via the net followed by a phone call to confirm the cruise departure was all that was needed. A few hours later, it was garnets,... More

Went on the sightseeing cruise yesterday after purchasing a groupon voucher and was not disappointed!Staff were friendly and informative, and we were lucky enough to see both dolphins and seals:). I normally get seasick but it was very calm and didn't feel a thing. Beautiful way to explore and learn about the area.

Took the 1.5hour cruise for Valentines day, and it was one of a kind. We chased dolphins, observed seals and all without any harm to either animals. The staff was knowledgeable about the area and provided us with not only an adventure to see dolphins and seals, but educated us about the beaches, houses, boats and people of Sorrento. Fun... More

We were able to enjoy watching wild dolphins and fur seals whilst not interfering with or disturbing the animals. Professional, helpful and knowledgable local staff. Great experience with the dolphins and fur seals.
