“There really are dolphins there!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Great to see dolphins in their natural habitat though they took some time to find. The motion of the catamaran may not suit the more sensitive stomach. Ride out was fine but ride back was more than a little damp, and take plenty of suntan cream.

“Dolphin spotting”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Large catamaran with plenty of rooms to lounge to and from the dolphin feeding areas. Free soft drink with trip, but beer available at extra cost. The usual photo was taken at the start which was €7 per couple, some people bought it, we didn't.

“Saw them!”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Enjoyed this trip, saw lots of dolphins, 1 fin whale and many flying fish. The guide was very knowledgeable, and provided very much information. Not really a trip for children though, most of them were sea sick and were laid flat.

“No Dolphins”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Not the companies fault but very choppy and the catamaran wallowed a lot. At least 20 people were seasick and getting from our seats to the bar was very dangerous until aided by one of the crew. Did not see anything other than a few birds which according to various people is unusual as it was the breading season and there were plenty of dolphins and whales about earlier that week. Not a trip we will be taking again as for some it was 2 hours of purgatory.
