Swimming with dolphines was by far my highlight of the trip. Our guide and skipper were amazing, their knowledge and expertise made it even more fun since you can learn so much from this. Will do it again, for sure!

Very professional and friendly trip. Briefing before leaving was good. Slick process to organise several boats. Small fast boats. Excellent guides, very informative and helpful. Saw whales, dolphins and turtles.

We saw groups of Risso's dolphins and pilot whales which was pretty sweet cause I expected only bottlenose and common dolphins. The boats are small and the captain great so travels are fun and intimate..I recommend
