Really glad we chose Mar de ons, instead of some other whale/dolphin excursions. It was a really hot day, and to see the overcrowded little boat next to ours made us sigh with relief. The boat has plenty of room on the various decks, and also an air-conditioned indoor bar area.
We chose the 2 hour excursion, and we were guaranteed 100% to see pilot whales with a 75% chance of dolphins. We achieved 100% on both counts.
We spent a hour or so with the Pilot whales, with the boat tracking the whales so that we could watch them. We must have seen over a dozen or so whales. It was truly excellent to get on front of the whales and watch them rise out of the water directly in front of us, before dipping under the boat. We also headed back and along the way stopped off at an area to see dolphins. Perhaps we were fortunate but again we saw plenty of dolphins, including some young ones with adults. We actually saw a dolphin lift vertically out of the water, twisting and flipping before landing back in the water.
Overall and excellent trip and I thoroughly recommend 'Mar de ons' over the other tours.
