Great release! The boat trip is already worth the detour even if you don't see any dolphins. We were lucky, we met a dozen of them, passed very close to the boat :) Very friendly staff and respectful of the marine environment, I recommend. Be careful not to turn this outing into mass tourism for the well-being of the dolphins. In the end there were more than 6 boats circling the same small group of dolphins.

From the booking to the return transfer everything was perfect. The tour was entertaining and fun. Our tour guide was great. Only the shark present can do something for the fact that we couldn't see any dolphins. The speedboat ride alone was worth the experience and who knows, if we come back and do the tour, we'll see dolphins. Thank you for this great experience.

The experience as a whole was phenomenal. The boat ride was entertaining and beautiful with an added bonus of seeing the dolphins. The staff on the boat were both charismatic and charming. Would definitely recommend.

It was just a super cool experience! And the whole crew tried so hard that we see dolphins. And they did it!!! It was just awesome!

the captain saved a sea turtle. amazing experience even if the dolphins were hiding
