“Multiple dolphin sightings WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of the local wildlife area. Boat captain took us straight to the dolphins, where we saw over 20 different dolphins. Amazing experience, will be doing this again. Would gladly paid more for this trip.

“Best £22 i've ever spent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2011

This is quick, easy and simple to review. 2 boat trips, and the same pack of 40 dolphins, turned up playing, and jumping around the boat. Absolutely awesome!

A big thanks to Ecoventures.

Best regards. Daron and Lisa.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2011

I took this trip with my six year old son and we both had a fantastic time. Robyn & Sarah run a thoroughly professional tour, and most people on our trip had been several times previously. But best of all, we encountered a group of around 20 dolphins who swam and played around the boat for nearly an hour! (Later that week we heard that a group had a rare encounter with a minke whale; that's a must for us next summer.)

I can't recommend this trip highly enough.

“Stunning and excellent fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2011

Cold wet day in August, 3.30pm trip, Had great photo in our loaned waterproofs- remember your hat and gloves! Sarah was a brilliant captain and guide. Rib was really fast, my kids 8 and 11 said the whole trip was awesome. Seeing the dolphins was pure joy, one even went under the boat. Must have seen over 30 in total in two places. Thoroughly recommended and I agree worth every penny- very memorable.
Would love to go again, but I live 500 miles away.
