Very nice tour and David, Aliane and Jamie were wonderful. Saw some pilot whales couple of males close to the boat and a family of pilot whales. The boat is very comfortable and less people makes it special. My son enjoyed a swim in the waters. Highly recommended. Meera and Aditya.

Great tour on a small yacht. There were only 10 people on the boat and we felt like we were alone. Great alternative for trips full of people where you have to fight for the seat on the deck. We can highly recommend it.

Nous avons vu des baleines et des dauphins. Nous avons pu nous baigner à côté des falaises. Les guides très sympathiques et intéressants et très bienveillants. A refaire! Merci

Such a glorious day. We saw Whales and Dolphins (literally metres away from the boat) and had a lovely swim in a beautiful location by the cliffs

absolutely fab very well looked after from pick up to lunch and even looked after when we were sea sick
