We arranged through our hotel rep to go on this excursion, which was really helpful! We were promised a different day out at sea if we didn't see either animal -which was a massive bonus! We were picked up very close to our hotel (there's a bus station two minutes away) and we were driven to Puerto Rico where the... More

The positive thing to tell if you like fresh air and a possibility to have a good look of the coastline you´ll get it on this 2 hour tour. We also saw dolphins which was the purpose from our side. Another passenger asked a crew member if he thought we would see whales and the answer was that we would... More

Three hours sat on a plank wrapped in a blanket with promises of whales, dolphins, flying fish and turtles. We didn't even see a bleached turd go by. The sea was a tadge choppy and thankfully no vomiters onboard. This is three hours of your life that you will not get back. If you do not see any sea life... More

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
