    This experience was amazing! I highly recommend this trip. The boat is not too busy, so you have room for your own space. We rode for a while along the coast before we saw loads of dolphins. Then we had a chance to swim in the water for a while. The boat with well equipped with towels, drinks, etc. However, the highlight for us was how friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable the crew was. They were absolutely amazing!

    We felt fortunate to have chosen this tour online. Marine biologists staff the beautiful boat and discuss the various species you encounter. The company is very respectful of the wildlife: if you happen upon a group of dolphins, they won't stay beyond 10 minutes so as not to disturb them. (Our tour got very close to a dolphin family with little ones, resurfacing and gorgeous to watch...) Unforgettably heartwarming. And even if marine life is not plentiful on your chosen day, rest assured that you will love volcanic cliffs and scenery and kindness of the crew. Keep in mind that the boat does hover for about twenty minutes to allow folks to jump in for a safe, brief swim: we wish we'd packed swimsuits. The local nibble food included in the price is delicious, and we highly recommend!

    This is a first class experience from start to finish, and well worth the extra money. We found a pod of common dolphins quite quickly, certainly before other boats, and got a fascinating talk through their habits and behaviour from the excellent on board team, who were superb throughout the 3 hour hour trip - sparkling wine , other alcoholic drinks and portuguese snacks were brought to us regularly! Maggie deserves a special mention - simply superb customer attention!
