As title! There might be others? but having done this trip several times it's great. If you have the time the longer trip is nice to do with a small stop over and swimming opportunity. See you again in April 17

I very nearly didn't book this as all the reviews go on about it being a vom-fest. Luckily, a friend went on it by chance last week and raved about it so I booked online for the two hour trip. So glad I did! The dolphins were just amazing. There were absolutely loads of them! Sadly, my pictures don't do... More

So, if I was reading this review, the main thing I would want to know is: 'did you see Dolphins or whales?' Yes, we seen bottle nose Dolphins. We didn't see any other species of dolphin though or whales. We weren't see sick either (that would be the second thing I'd want to know) the driver was very nice and... More

Our family really enjoyed this excursion - we saw several dolphins in their own environment (far superior to seeing them in some sort of dolphinarium) and the boat trip was very lovely. Yes, you may get sea sick but it is the sea!! The crew were fantastic. They spoke several languages and ensured that everyone was included and got the... More

Went on a calm day and there were big waves, if you get seasick take a pill beforehand; girlfriend did, and she felt fine. The crew are great, they were very active in spotting sea life and when they knew we were coming up on dolphins they asked if people would make room for the kids to get to the... More

Great trip as long as you don't suffer sea sickness! Not suitable for young children due to the choppy sea. A couple on the trip took their child (around a year and a half) the poor thing screamed and cried the whole journey!

Ok so firstly yes most people will get sea sick on this trip! We booked the 2 hour trip online before we went away and got a 10% discount. It takes 45/50 minutes to get out to where the dolphins are, it does get pretty windy and the kids got cold although i was fine. Once you get to where... More

Javier Z, Gerente at Spirit Of The Sea, responded to this review

Thank you very much for your Comment, Lisa. It is true that sometimes the dolphins are a bit away from the coast (which is good for them because otherwise there would be many boats putting too much pressure on them) and that means that on windy days the sea can be choppy. I am glad that despite everything you could... More

We went on Wednesday the 27th July and we seen around 10 Dolphins who all swam around the boat. It was truly an amazing experience which i will never forget. We also seen a pilot whale about 5minutes later! And a few flying fish on the way back. The sea was rather choppy making my boyfriend very, very sea sick.(I... More
