A good boat, a good team but the dolphins weren’t there... so we went to the other side of the island to search for them. When they appeared they weren’t that easy to look at and funny enough the “swimming part” of the excursion was not possible : they are wild ! So how can we swim with ? Anyhow I would say it was more a “watching the dolphins” ride.

It was a great experience. Marco prepared you very well and was always there with a lot of fun. We laughed a lot and learned a lot. The diving was a lot of fun and we weren't pressed for time.

Litterally the most amazing experience ever. Once out with their fasr boat thanks to the information of their network of spotters onland we quickly encounter a big pod of dolphins. The crew onboard made sure that everyone had the chace to get in the water safely and with full respect of the animals (exactly what I was looking for as marine biologist myself). You will never get closer than this in their natural habitats. WOW!

The staff went above and beyond to ensure we had a great trip, despite not finding the type of dolphins we could swim with. Conditions were challenging but we saw 3 sperm whales snd striped dolphins. It was a wonderful experience!
