“Awesome Boat Trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Me and my husband went on a Dolphin Boat Trip with Sealife. It was an awesome experience. We loved every second! Got to see some common dolphins and a baby minke whale! It was great to see them in their natural environment and swimming right up next to the boat! The staff were brilliant. Would defiantly recommend, worth every euro!!

“brillant would advise this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

we met paula on the walk down to the marina and we got it for a better price than on brouchure. i was abit worried as i was on one before and did not get to see any. but this did what it said on the tin :), as it was a windy day it was bumpy on the way out but u felt safe on the boat, when we got out we found a school of about twenty to thirty dolphins, it was a joy to be so close to them and see them in there naturally environment, they jumped around the boat and as it was a small boat you were very close to them.great staff and lovely experience.

“Lifetime experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

We went on a dolphin tour with Sealife with three adults and four kids and had a true lifetime experience which was worth every euro. An exciting ride along the coastline, then out to the open sea to watch for dolphins. We found quite a large number. As it was rather windy on the day, the ride back was bumpy, which gave the trip some additional fun. In total 90 very exciting and entertaining minutes. The zodiacs from Sealife are modern and fast, can turn easily and allow a very direct experience, so we were glad later we had not gone on a larger vessel.
