We took our 2 children (8&3) on the dolphin safari yesterday. It was a great experience for them and us. The staff were friendly and helpful. The boat was not too crowded so everyone had a seat and there was plenty of space. It lasted around an hour and we saw lots of dolphins which was wonderful. My 8 year... More

What an amazing time. To see so many dolphins truly blessed. The Boa was not over crowded enough room for all to see these amazing creatures. Captain Tim and staff very professional and knowledgeable.

We did the combined trip, up the rock and then on the blue boat for the dolphins. The rock tour guide was excellent although we were disappointed that we only saw St Michaels Cave and not the WW1 tunnels as I was assured that this was a full rock tour and having done it before with a taxi I assumed...

I went on the dolphin safari on the Aug 3rd 2016, I enjoyed every minute of it. except at the reception in their office.the woman (middle aged) was very abrupt never smiled and she was the only one who did not seem to enjoy what she was doing. I would recommend that she was replaced with a younger person who... More

Had an awesome trip with these guys. We headed out of the harbour and within about 15 mins found a pod of bottlenose dolphins. It was such a fantastic experience. The captain even pointed out drug smugglers being chased by the navy on the way back. They gave us quite the show.

This was our second trip with dolphin safari and yet again they didn't disappoint. They struggled to find any dolphins at first but they didn't give up and kept looking. They finally found them and it was amazing!! I would highly recommend them to anyone. Really easy to book, lots of space on the boat and fantastic staff. Thank you!!

Thank you so much for your review and for choosing to sail with us twice, we do appreciate it, and especially for you explaining that it is not always easy to find the dolphins. Wild dolphin watching is not an exact science, it is more an instinct coupled with experience, so we really appreciate you saying that so that future... More

We booked on line before we left home and included the monkey visit as well. Had quite a search for the dolphins and got quite wet as we were at the front. Took a good 45mins before we saw any dolphins but once we found them it was great. Crew were very good and kept updating you as to where... More

Went out as a family of 4 and found the staff to be really helpful and knowledgeable. When we set out it was quite choppy so there weren't any dolphins around, this didn't put the crew off and they kept going towards Africa with still no joy. This was an added bonus for us as we like boat trips in... More
