    what a great experience to sail this catamaran. We spotted the black and gray dolphin. It was very relaxed on the boat. Lots of space as they keep the group smaller so it's more personal. Lunch was well prepared and tasty. Drinks also included and you can drink whatever you want. From soft drinks, wine to something stronger. Danielle also speaks Dutch, which is nice. She told about the types of dolphins. Nice crew.

    A wonderful boat trip with a small number of people, so plenty of freedom of movement. Good explanation during the trip with a delicious lunch. Pilot whales seen from very close, really fantastic! The boat crew certainly looked for dolphins but unfortunately did not see them. During lunch enough opportunity to snorkel / swim in a beautiful bay. A bit more expensive excursion but you really get value for money.

    Very nice trip. The staff is very caring, you are regularly offered a drink. The snack is nice and good. We saw pilot whales but no dolphins, bad luck! Short swimming time for those who wish during the snack break (approximately 25 min stop to eat and swim). Shuttle that picks you up and brings you back to the hotel. Small group, it's perfect when you see other boats crowded with people. FYI the staff does not speak French but we managed
