Even with a rough sea, skipper Nuno and guide Vanessa were amazing. Explaining everything perfectly, making great efforts for the trip to be amazing and it culminated with an amazing Humpback Whale jumping into the air!

We really enjoyed our morning whale watch. Just dolphins but that’s ok! The whole trip was fantastic and the staff very friendly and enthusiastic. Respectful of the wildlife.

We saw dolphins (many) but no whales and somewhat rough seas. Circling the isla was very interesting as it was a dormant volcano. Without whale sightings, I can only give it a 4.More
