A fantastic experience making my lifelong dream to swim with dolphins in the wild come true. Great staff, very professional; I particularly liked the Marine Biologists being there ensuring the welfare of the dolphins at all times. The crew wanted us to get the best out of it. This was a Christmas surprise gift, if I had known I was experiencing this I would have practiced with a snorkel, which could have made me more confident in the water.

Awesome experience. Crew were so friendly, boat was fantastic and everything was done to make everyone comfortable and enthusiastic. Environment was totally respected and the whole experience was amazing and felt safe at all times, even though I am a 'wuse'

A truely unique experience to be invited into the wild habitate of theses amazing animals. This is an experience where the animals are respected and valued. We have the honour to see them on their terms. The dive masters and all the crew are professional and at the same time make sure it is a safe and fun experience. Also very educational and informative.
