The scenery is awesome and we went at about 10am so light perfect for photography. We did see Fungie (or another dolphin filling in). If you’ve seen one dolphin, you’ve seen them all. Others on the boat seemed excited.

Suitable for impatient youngsters. I kind of disliked the idea of cornering the dolphin for us to see him. The kids loved it though. Staff is friendly and there is no need for prior booking.

We had great weather which made for calm water. At the beginning of the tour it almost seemed like Fungie was being chased by multiple boats but by the end of the hour Fungie was playing with the boats. Much to our delight, he chased...More
