Absolutely to recommend the tour! We had a lot of time to watch the dolphins without harassing them. It was a beautiful sight. Then we drove past the cliffs in caves to the small beach which is great for a small snorkeling tour! Anyone who is enthusiastic about waves, dolphins and nature should definitely do the tour!

My husband and I booked this last minute and it was one of our highlights in Ibiza. All of the staff members were extremely friendly and fun! Loved the snorkeling, so much fishes to snorkel with. The sunset was absolutely stunning. Must do when in Ibiza. It’s a memorable experience!

Super nice guides, everything went very easily. Our guide took good care of his passengers and was also up for a joke! The excursion is really recommended and we were able to watch the dolphins for quite a long time :-)

Excellent service. We saw the dolphins and a magnificent sunrise. Pilot of the boat super nice to listen we had a very pleasant time.

Excellent experience with two stop diving in clear waters.
