Had a fantastic time yesterday and saw loads of dolphins. Great boat used by Splash allowing you to get really close to the dolphins. Whole experience for 2 adults and two kids was amazing. Highly recommend

We are just home from a wonderful holiday to Marbella with our 2 children. I want to give a big shout out to Barry for taking us out on his rib!! We were so excited about our trip after hearing his stories of Dolphin and Whale sightings & we had the most amazing trip out to see the Dolphins , the were swimming alongside us and jumping out of the water , it was amazing! This was the highlight of our holiday ,pure magic! If you want to find him he's just down the small lane after La Despensa @ Cabopino Marina! I would also recommend La Despensa for a meal after your trip , the food is out of this world! Thanks a mill Barry for helping us create wonderful memories for our family to cherish!

Had the worst experience here today. Spent £130 on jetskis for 20 mins. I got 13 mins, my jet ski didn’t work well and they refused to refund difference while abusing me infront of my kids telling me to ‘go back to the uk’. Appalling service and I’ll be posting reviews all over social media. Very upsetting indeed.

I booked to do my RYA Powerboat Course at Splash Water-sports and Barry was my instructor and examiner. First Barry took me through all the theory and gave me hard examples and then a test, afterwards we went out first into the port then the high sea to do the practical training and tests.

Barry was very good at explaining all the required syllabus and kept cool when I made a couple of basic mistakes, he just showed me how it should be done and we repeated it again.

Barry is an excellent instructor and has a great character and sense of humour, I really enjoyed my course with him and he also gave me some excellent additional power-boating tips along the way. I look forward to putting all this into practice.

I can highly recommend Barry and Splash Water-sports for all budding Powerboat captains!

Thanks! Keith

What a great Day out with Barry-the- boat, Barry know the coast line so well and also the best time and place to be to maximize the chance of seeing Dolphins, the sea was a bit choppy but what a thrill it was to bounce along riding the waves, my wife and niece were in the front of the boat having the time of their lives, defo a trip not to be missed if you like the sea air and to be chauffeured through the sea by Captain Barry .

My 10-yr old daughter, my wife & I absolutely loved this boat trip and we were not disappointed when our Splash Watersports Skipper Barry was able to locate a group of Dolphins. It's obviously not guaranteed that he'll find dolphins but I believe they appear on most trips and he seems to have a knack of knowing where they'll be!
Much to my daughter's delight, they swam underneath the boat, almost within touching distance and we also saw a mother and young 'un swimming side-by-side. And yes these are 'wild' dolphins which it makes it a bit more special.
The type of boat used is a rib, which is safe, fast and closer to the water than many of the other boat hires, so great for viewing dolphins! And no you don't really get wet.
All in all, a fab excursion with some happy memories for all of us and highly recommended!

Myself a friend and our kids went out to cabopino last week. What a lovely place, we had a fantastic time. We used splash water sports several times, each time a brilliant experience, Barry was very professional, friendly and he made each experience truly rememberable. Before finding Barry we used a company cabopino water sports, we went out on the jet skis and spent our time on them confused as communication from the staff was terrible and our instructions were poor which ruined our experience. I would urge you to stay away from cabopino water sports and use Barry at splash water sports instead for a truly enjoyable experience.

I booked a 1 hour boat trip to look for Dolphins as a surprise for my husbands birthday with our two teenage children. We loved it!
Barry is friendly, funny and a true professional who puts you at ease as soon as he puts your life jacket on!
The boat ride was great fun, riding waves as we set out looking for dolphin. We thought we might not be lucky but Barry knew where to look and our trip was completed by a first hand view of wild dolphins! Super. Would recommend trip as great fun and Barry is an expert!
