After spending a couple hours out to sea we did find a group of beautiful dolphins however blaring out loud music on the boat would scare them away. We spent 50 euros each on this boat trip which included the travel to Puerto Rico, food and drink, however all they had to offer was a plate of rice, bread and... More

it was 49euro and we saw nothing major, spent a long time seaching, for any sea creatures to only discover a few, not worth the expence but im sure not everyones experience will be like this, several people were being sick also, so wasnt the best,
