Highly motivated and young team. Everything perfectly organized. Saw dolphins and could still swim in the Atlantic. We got snacks and drinks on the very classy catamaran. There was enough space for everyone so that you could find a spot yourself. We would book this tour again because it was just very well organized. Top

We have been on several catamaran trips previously and this particular one is the best by a mile. Super polite, kind and welcoming staff and not over crowded! At times it felt like we were on a private charter. Very informative regarding sea life and costal information. A wonderful trip 10/10 would recommend and we will certainly be going back! Thank you x

Super boat, top and very friendly team, impeccable service. Dolphins and whales not always there but nothing to regret. Very good experience to recommend for this VIP excursion. Small problem with the choice of language in French on GetYourGuide which was resolved very quickly by VipDolphins. Again a big thank you.
