This is so worth doing and one of the best experiences I've had. If you enjoy being out at sea, watching beautiful pilot whales in their natural habitat combined with some nice snacks and drinks, this is for you. I loved it and was back at the harbour the following morning for another trip. Simply delightful and energising and amazing. Loved, loved, loved it!

Great staff, really kind and knowledgeable. Saw lots of whales. Nice to be offered a drink on board. Boat comfortable and a relaxing boat trip

Erg mooi! Een wat kleinere groep met veel ruimte om rond te lopen en rond te kijken. Grote aanrader!
