we have not seen a single dolphin nor a wale - consequently this was a 3.5 hours boring sea cruise but not a "dolphin tour". crew, boat and food was nice. you can definitely see thousands of robins

Thank Jens K
Theunis K, Owner at Catamaran Charters, responded to this reviewResponded July 21, 2018

Dear Jens, I am sorry you did not see dolphins or whales, however, these are wild animals, it is not a zoo, so there can never be any guaranteed sightings of marine wildlife.
