Hard to give a highlight as the whole day was amazing. The experience of the team had us experience Orca, common dolphins, False Killer Whales and bottlenose dolphins. Incredible!!! This team is all about the best experience for their customers, and not about the tick box route. Highly recommend this company

I can’t recommend these guys enough, they were great with my kids and made the whole trip smooth and fun for us all. My son has autism and they were fantastic with him, this really was the icing on the cake for me. They have a couple of options when it comes time to swimming with the dolphins so even nervous swimmers were looked after and were able to get into the water. Communication before and during the experience was clear and friendly and no unexpected surprises. What they said would happen, happened. An unforgettable family memory and one I’d like to repeat one day, A+

Had the most amazing day with friends. A spontaneous trip, booked online for New Year’s Day. Such a great crew, small but efficient! Knowledgeable about the area and the sea life. We took our lunch on board because COVID restricted them from the BBQ lunch usually provided. Plenty of space though, easy to move around the boat. The toilet was an interesting experience, was a bit dubious but it was clean and honestly, a great day! I have a fear of the ocean but felt safe and once we saw the dolphins any anxiety gave way to excitement. My group jumped in the water but I watched from the boat and didn’t feel like I missed out. The view was great and I got some great pics. Highly recommend this full day trip. Sunscreen and sun glasses a must. Had a snooze on the way back on the comfy bench seats. Thanks so much for an amazing experience!

What an amazing day out on the water! We had great conditions and great visibility. The crew were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The snorkeling was fantastic and dolphins were magical. I could not have asked for a better experience. Great value for a whole day out on the water, would strongly recommend this company to anyone who is looking to do a dolphin swim and would definitely do it again! Thanks everyone and thank you for sharing the wonderful photos
