Saw lots of dolphins and flying fish! Very cool! No whales but that was because it got choppy during the last half of the tour and the crew decided we shouldn't go out any further in search of whales. Better safe than sorry.

Booked this trip on our last day and as soon as we left the harbour I knew that it was a mistake as the sea was choppy and the pleasure boat was rocking and rolling. Knowing that the dolphin area is about 7 miles out and watching the 15 other passengers I could see that most were uncomfortable in those... More

Must leave to lose. Three years that we are their customers. The first year we saw something, a little something in the second year, this year we saw a whale for 20 seconds. In fact the boat saw the whale for 20 seconds, but only if the audience had the seat in sight. They treated us very badly. We asked... More

As a person who believes whales and dolphins should only be viewed in their natural environment, the ocean, and not in zoos or parks, the spirit of the sea was perfect for me. It is not a luxery boat, but perfectly adequate and equipped with sonar to give you the best chance of seeing something. You are not guaranteed a... More

This has to be the worst trip I have ever been on. From start to finish. First of all we got down to the harbor early and was greeted by what seemed a pleasant woman who took the prepaid ticket from ourselves and handed over a leaflet which contained pictures and facts about various whales and dolphins you may see...

I went on this trip last year ( it was sept 2013, but options wont let me go back any further) and I have to say it was amazing, a fanastic end to my holiday. Beautiful scenery very relaxing and of course the dolphins! The boat uses a sonar sound to attract the dolphins and if there are no dolphins... More

A must trip if you are in Puerto Rico. Good three hour trip out to watch the Dolphins and experience the flying fish on the way. Free soft drinks included in price of ticket too. Might need to watch if your prone to sea sickness as is it an hour out into the Atlantic so even on a calm day... More

I went on this trip with my partner and 10 year old daughter. We did the 3 hour trip with a stop off to swim in the sea. It took a little while to travel to and find the Dolphins but when we did it was fantastic to see them in their natural habitat. It definitely made my daughters holiday... More
