The boat looks as though it has limited seating outside but once you are spotting things you are on your feet and there were plenty of viewing points and Miguel, our Captain ensured the boat moved round allowing everyone a sight of any sea-life. We...More

It was amazing, I truly recommend this tour, we saw a blue whale, a huge group/family of dolphins, it was really awesome. The tour guide, Rita, she is really enthusiastic and really makes the tour more dynamic. I would definitely do it again.

Our guide Victor was very good. Not too scientific. We saw three diiferent species of dolphins. Whales were not promised for that tour. We were happy to see the dolphins and enjoyed the hours at sea. Liisa Latola and Seppo Pekurinen

I'll be upfront and tell you that I didn't use Peter's services. It seems a fair chunk of Horta's tourist attractions are owned by the family (famous sports bar, ice cream shop, scrimshaw museum et al), and I didn't warm to the egotistical blurb outside...More

Our party of 4 senior citizens did this trip on the larger boat and was glad we did as the sea this day was on the rough side. We did see a couple of Whales and few Dolphins but this was because of poor weather....More
