The crew was very attentive and helpful. The food is the best onboard food we have ever had. There is something for everyone. If you get sick, the crew knows how to help you. The highlight, of course, was the dolphins. We also found it admirable that there was no hunting of dolphins. The snorkeling on the corals is of course also so wonderful and the action at the end is a perfect conclusion.

Amazing time worth the money! The staff was great, very polite, nice attitude, helpful at all times and engaged. We've made 4 stops, 2 for swimming with dolphins and 2 for reef. Excellent time. At the end our guide thanked us for attending, gave last instructions and politely siad if we want to give the team any tips they'll appreciate it, didn't push for it. Totally recommend it!

we were picked up at 8am at our hotel as indicated. after a 30min drive and picking up other participants we were at the boat. here we paid 5 euros tourist tax for 2 people. at 9.25 we left. less than 10 minutes sailing and the first group of dolphins soon appeared. the guides explained to us that we had to be quick and go into the water at their signal. the chances of swimming with a dolphin were high if you stayed close to the instructor. the pace was very high and you have to be a good swimmer as the dolphins are very fast. we have been able to do this 3 times again. after that we left because too many other boats came and the dolphins were startled. our group did not participate in this!
