We had a blast! The boat is nicely maintained and the crew were super; friendly and professional. It really was an eco-tour With squid lizard fish and of course we saw lots of dolphins. Take this to tour!

The eco tour was excellent. It was a nice an awesome 2 hour boat ride with fishing and demonstrations of the fishes caught. We all learnt a thing or two. We saw a lot of dolphins too. It was a very pleasant experience. The price was right too
