Overall a really nice day! Total time was from 8 am to 3 pm (including pick-up and drop off at the hotel). First we went to an amazing snorkeling place! Fish and corals full of diverse colors and the reef was truly amazing (about 15 m high). After that we searched the area for dolphins and finally made it to see 2 of them. They were really beautiful. Unfortunately swimming with them seems more like a job for pros, it's impossible to keep up with their speed if you're not a pro swimmer. None from the group went for it, except one guy from the crew who obviously knew what he was doing and managed to swim relatively near to them for about 10 minutes (by swimming full speed the entire time). So if you imagine taking a relaxing bath with dolphins, forget about it. Then we went to the 2nd snorkeling place which was good as well, but not as amazing as the first one. Those who wanted could ride the sofa and banana. Then we sailed back in a slow pace. The crew was very nice the entire time.

This company runs a very professional and well maintained boat, and the crew knows how to make sure everyone is having a good time! Would highly recommend for anyone who wants to have a fun day on the water. We were able to see the dolphins, but most of the fun came from socializing with the other guests and snorkeling on the beautiful shallow reefs.

The travel in general was very good! The people from the boat very kindly and helpful. The food was excellent with all the drinks and the snorkeling and the water activities also. The only problem was with the driver because he left us like 20 min alone in the van while we were waiting for other people that were coming on the tour. I think in this kind of situation they have to leave them in their hotel. It’s not fair for the rest of the people who was at time and pay the same money. And if you want swim with the dolphins you need to know how to swim very very well. But I recommend this excursion for have a funny day!
