Amazing experience! We had the luck to find two dolphins, so super happy about it. The caves were also awesome. The boat driver did a wonderfull job getting inside them to get the full experience. The Sunset was also incredible. We were lucky cuz it was full moon and during the Sunset, the moon was rising from the opposite side of the sun, making both sides and unique experience. We were also surprised with a "glass" of wine (or Juice) during the sunset. Very nice detail from this company. Overall, i recommend it! Choose this one if u want a good, full and relaxing 3h.

Die Bootstour war ein einmaliges Erlebnis! Das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnks hat sebr gut gepasst. Unser Guide und die gesamte Crew war stets freundlich, bemüht, aufmerksam und hilfsbereit. Leider hat man aufgrund der schlechten Lautsprecher und durch den Wind oft nicht alles verstanden, was der Guide gesagt hatte. Was uns aufgefallen ist: es ist wichtig, dass man sich warme Kleidung einpackt, da es auf dem offenen Meer schon sehr frisch geworden ist, trotz Sonnenschein!
