Pedro was a super guide! He gave a good explanation of everything and showed us nice things. We were lucky to see the dolphins. It is a very quick boat in which you get wet sometimes. Bring a towel. Afterwards you can relax in the nice harbor with a variety of restaurants.

2.5 hours full of emotion, the guides were wonderful, they were at a level of 10, the whole trip was spectacular with dolphins next to our boat, the beautiful views and we were also able to enter a cave that was spectacular, they let us bathe in the area and the explanations they gave us at all times were very funny with a lot of humor. I recommend it.
