We had the best 2 hours on our boat tour. Our guides (I think Johnny & pablo?) were very knowledgeable of the coastline and gave a great history of the rock & cave formation. We were told there was no guarantee we would see dolphins on our tour but they would try their best. when we sped out of the caves out to sea we were hopeful & excited but nothing could prepare us for the sight of seeing dolphins playfully diving in & out if the sea in front of us, it was truly magical not just for our 8 year old daughter but all of us.We were very impressed that our boat always kept at a respectful distance from the dolphins & when more boats pulled alongside us we retreated to ensure there was no crowding. We were very impressed & would highly recommend this tour. X

It was a very fun day the tour guide was very informative and kept checking up on us to make sure we were okay and all well which was pleasant the captain was driving quite fast at some points but it is a speed boat to be fair if the waves are big it can be quite a rough ride make sure to bring a jacket as we got splashed a few times all in all I would recommend a good experience

The boat trip was really beautiful! What a wonderfully beautiful coast! Dolphins seen! The captains are in contact with each other so there is a good chance that you will see dolphins. Ricardo Paulo makes it a fun ride, really nice enthusiastic guy! No regrets about this ride, most beautiful activity we did with our three children aged 10, 13 and 14!
