    superb excursion around the island where you are lulled by the water. very friendly team on board who give us some explanations on the animals we meet (different types of dolphins, turtle). a little disappointed not to have seen whales but it is "the fault with no luck". we had a great time. thanks again.

    We were lucky as the trip only had 16 customers on board so there was plenty of room on the catamaran and to view any wild life we were lucky to see. The catamaran was very well appointed, easy to board, a small but well stocked and competitively priced bar. The crew were excellent, very informative, gave details of the animals we saw, mingled with all customers and were easy to talk too. Strong commitment to safety. The trip itself was excellent, beautiful views of the coast helped by good weather. The highlights, close sightings of pod of bottlenose dolphins, a pod of 5 common dolphins and a pair of Fin Whales. We were very lucky as sightings cannot be guaranteed but the sea trip in itself was very enjoyable. Would thoroughly recommend to everyone,
