A delight to the eye

The activity itself, simple: you simply get on a boat-boat that will fit about 15-20 people more (I think we were about 10), and heading offshore to look for dolphins ... So far, normal ... when You start to see the dolphins, everyone changes and becomes magical: it is amazing to see them in their natural habitat, free, crossing and jumping continuously, as if they played with you ... one pass! About the time of the activity, a half hour or a little more following the dolphins, plus what it takes to locate them (about 40-50 minutes the day we went) and return to port ... And as for the 2 guys that take you, very nice ... I recommend them without a doubt !!

We had the chance to meet after 1 hour of dolphin player navigation for a 1/2 of wonder. Thank you

A beautiful morning with the meeting of dolphins, superb!
