This boat may be slower than the ones of the other company, but it isnt a lesser one. The trip was amazing and lasted even longer than it was due as we saw dolphins on the way back. In total we saw 3 species of whales and dolphins as well. Don't go for the big company, help out this guy and his family who are doing an Amazing job

We booked this tour 2 days in advance, after looking over other tour operators, this one was 50% less expensive. The crew was helpful and punctual. Everybody did their best and we managed to see a very big group of dolphins. Then we set out quite far from the island and succeeded in sighting at least 4 or maybe even more sperm whales! The captain was intent on giving us a full experience, staying with the animals quite long. The minus of this enthusiasm was that several people were sick, since we were sailing on very high waves. The trip lasted 5 hours instead of the planned 4h. We are happy to get our moneys worth, however please do take a pill if you get at all seasick.

I had a great experience, saw so many dolphins (of 2 different species at 2 different spots) and groups of "false killer whale" too. Even sighted a tail of whale from a distance, but when we tried to go closer, she were disappeared underwater and no more reemerged. Almost 4 hours sailing, trying to see as much as possible, I'm fully satisfied, definitely worth it.

This tour was excellent!!! We got to see many dolphins. The owner/captain of this little wooden family business boat felt like he gave his heart and soul to make this tour enjoyable for us! His enthusiasm and passion for this was just inspiring! Would definitely recommend! Always happy to support family business and passionate people! We did not seen wales but, he has reduced the prices per person to all customers, only for that reason. We have enjoyed a lot with him and his crew, he even invited us to be with him on the bridge all the way to the port. Fully recommended, we cannot wait to be back !

If you want to see whales and dolphins, this is your tour. Apart from offering the best prices in the island, they will (literally) go the extramile until you see the animals. We were very lucky and could see a sperm whale and loads of dolphins swimming next to us, pretty exciting. It's a family-run company where they like what they do and they know how to share it. Not specifically of the company, but of the experience, think it twice if you usually get seasick. It's a big boat, but it's a boat ;)
