We booked the private tour, which was a great option as we could have more control over it, plus it was just the two of us! Our driver tried a lot for us to see the dolphins and we found them! We had a chance to swim with them too! After we went snorkeling at an amazing reef and had a great time! The company was very helpful from the pickup until the end. They gave us a great recommendation for lunch after, and also offered to help us with the cars, uber, etc. Totally recommend it! Tip: Book an early tour to avoid all the other boats searching for dolphins, as the dolphins are in their natural environment and are scared of all the boats and people.

It was great fun. We started with a trip to giftun island. We stayed there for 2 hours. Nice view, sun, nice music and nice people. I was able to take very nice pictures there. Then we had lunch and you could drink unlimited. We then went snorkeling at 2 different places and everyone was allowed to participate and was well guided. There's a photographer for when your phone dies! I loved everything from start to finish! Good tour guides :)

Excellent information provided at the start of the trip. Visited 2 snorkelling spots which were amazing, Giftun island orange bay was a lovely place to visit with amazing photo opportunities, the food provided is lovely and all staff were very friendly and welcoming. A very clean boat which is well looked after!

Great activities, super kind and knowledgeable staff.

So nice and helpful people I really enjoyed with them
