We were initially forgotten when we were picked up in the morning, but then picked up separately and brought to the meeting point. Seeing the dolphins in the open sea and being so close to them was an amazing experience! We were in groups of 3 or 4 from time to time in the water. However, the behavior of some tourists is abysmal... remember that these are wild animals that should not be touched and certainly do not want to! But nevertheless the tour was beautiful and the food on the island was really delicious. There was chicken, fish, sausage, herb baguette, salad and grilled bananas for dessert. All in all a successful trip!

The whole tour was very nice. You were always let off the boat in exactly the right place and could really swim with the dolphins for a short time. I've never been so close to these animals! We always paid attention to the animals and drove a wide berth around them and when they swam towards us the engine was switched off so that they were not frightened. After that we went to a nice spot for snorkeling with very clear water and a lot of nice fish that were fed by the crew. After snorkeling we drove to the Crystal Rock and finally there was a really delicious BBQ on the Ile aux Benitiers and enough time for swimming, walking and for souvenirs. Drinks are provided all the time.
