Review of: Blue Quest Discovery
Blue Quest were excellent. Just returned today from a trip to see the dolphins and whales. We were told it was only a 50/50 chance before we set off which we accepted as they are obviously wild animals. The crew were very polite and knowledgeable and said that other boats would notify them if dolphins or whales were sited. Within a few minutes two large pods of dolphins were seen and we joined other boats to watch them play and swim with people who were already in the water. We then went out to deep water to look for the whales. The crew tried to listen for them but persevered going further out until a diving boat radioed to say they were with a family of whales. The crew took as further than normal to see these amazing creatures swimming within feet of our boat. We then returned and they kindly took a mother and child back to shore who were sea sick before coming back out so that we could snorkel whilst they cooked us a lovely lunch. 10/10 for kindness and effort.…

Review of: Whale watching
We booked a whale encounter. And we did not see whales. They said chance is 60%. They said in the end the captain saw one, but it was too far away. I think: You might see whales in some seasons, but they keep doing their business also when the chance to see a whale is maybe 2%.

Review of: Dolphins Encounter and Whale Watching
As amazing as this experience and company was It became very crowded when ever we found dolphins as boats would pop out from everywhere and people would be jumping in all over the place. All the guides were very friendly and knowledgable. And we were lucky enough to see a few sperm whales. Even got to do some snorkelling when we stopped for lunch on a reef.…
