After a hot coach trip to the harbour we finally boarded the catamaran. I was alittle apprehensive at first as I'd never been out on a boat and have always been scared of trips on the sea. Drinks kept being served to us as we sat and enjoyed the view on top deck. Lots of people and lots of fun.... More

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

I booked the trip online before we went over and on the application it asked for the name and address of hotel so I assumed as it says on the website that they pick you up from your hotel. This didn't happen as we waited outside our hotel. That night I emailed the company explaining my side and they had... More

Great to see dolphins in their natural habitat though they took some time to find. The motion of the catamaran may not suit the more sensitive stomach. Ride out was fine but ride back was more than a little damp, and take plenty of suntan cream.

Large catamaran with plenty of rooms to lounge to and from the dolphin feeding areas. Free soft drink with trip, but beer available at extra cost. The usual photo was taken at the start which was €7 per couple, some people bought it, we didn't.

Enjoyed this trip, saw lots of dolphins, 1 fin whale and many flying fish. The guide was very knowledgeable, and provided very much information. Not really a trip for children though, most of them were sea sick and were laid flat.

Not the companies fault but very choppy and the catamaran wallowed a lot. At least 20 people were seasick and getting from our seats to the bar was very dangerous until aided by one of the crew. Did not see anything other than a few birds which according to various people is unusual as it was the breading season and... More
