This was really a good trip, and we enjoyed every minute. We saw a lot of dolphins and even a turtle on the way back. Catering was perfect, and the boat was comfortable.

We had a nice trip with a very friendly crew. We saw dolphins at the end of our trip, but unfortunately no whales. The trip was overall very nice and would recommend it.
