I have enjoyed a lot this experience. We saw two separate groups of dolphins, from two different species. One of the groups had a lot of baby dolphins, and they swim really close to the boat. It was amazing. Unfortunately we didn't saw any whales,...More

Great experience! The staff is super friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and accommodating of most major languages. The price is reasonable given the duration of the tour and expertise of the captain and mate. Would do it again in a heartbeat!
