Great experience, we booked the afternoon trip and hence missed on the sunrise, but dolphin viewing was amazing, the water was quite choppy and cold for our liking, hence we didn't step in the water but our skipper provided all the opportunity to have most out of the tour even showed some caves on our way back. it takes roughly 50 mins to reach the dolphin spot. Again amazing experience and very well organized

It was a wonderful tour, our guide carlos was top notch. Super friendly and informative. We would do it again and again.

Great experience. Met dolphins on a small boat 10km off Cap Formentor and stayed between them for 1 hour.
