We had a beautiful morning sailing with warm, friendly and attentive crew. We were able to see lots of dolphins and whales and a large turtle swim by. My daughter enjoyed a swim in the swim and the food onboard was excellent. The only problem was it all had to end, we could have stayed out there all day

Eileen and David were amazing hosts on the boat tour! Super friendly and welcoming. They also offered us great recommendations for restaurants on the island. We had choppy water due to the high winds but were still able to spot some dolphins and pilot whales. (If you easily get sea sick, I would recommend taking some medication beforehand or with you just in case.) It was really nice to be on a sail boat with a smaller group of people. Much more private of a tour.

We highly recommend this excursion. We had a lovely few hours on board and were excited to see whales and dolphins up close, and were particularly impressed by the fact the crew don't chase the animals (like some other trips) but totally respect them and the ocean environment. What a lovely, charming, interesting and interested bunch of people - they know exactly what they're doing, are totally professional and made our day. We only wish we could have spent longer on board - next time we'd charter them for the whole day! Thank you. Gracias. Danke and Merci!
