    Perfect experience. You could really see and feel the difference between this boat and the other ones at the harbor. The staff was so sweet and helpful. We got drinks very fast and served with a smile every time. The boat was luxurious and clean all over. Good views and seating availability. We saw dolphins which was nice. Would recommend for everyone to go on this tour, this was truly a good experience.

    Was okay

    What you have to pay I think is a lot for what is being done. No whale seen and no turtles. Of course the chance is not that big but do not enter it as a line of text in your header. Only dolphins, a swim and then back to the harbor. Even within 3 hours. A pity but it was pleasant on the water.

    Amazing experience - highly recommend

    Charming, thoughtful and engaging crew. Beautiful boat, immaculately clean. Plenty of room. Greeted with Mumm champagne. Delicious cocktails and snacks. The marine biologist, Maria, was very enthusiastic and informative. We saw dolphins at close range (engines were switched off and dolphins weren't pursued/harassed) and had a refreshing swim. So glad we picked this boat. Its slower than the ribs so you probably see more marine life on those but they are much less comfortable. We had a lovely afternoon. Thank you
