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 !!

The boat trip was lovely and we enjoyed the island we were taken too. However due to the weather we didn’t get much information about the oysters and the other things we were supposed to be informed about. However the thing l was must upset about was we were given life jackets to wear, but were given no guidance on how to fasten them and to inflate them should an emergency arise. Apart from that we enjoyed our trip and the pilot of the boat was very hospitable.

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

Simple and pleasant sea trip, Raphael is a friendly guide and skipper.

A beautiful morning with the meeting of dolphins, superb!
