Our car that picked us up at the hotel was 40 minutes late which was a bit annoying. But it was an amazing experience that I will never forget as it fulfilled my dream of seeing dolphins in the wild! The crew was super nice and very concerned about the safety of the individuals. The food was good and plentiful. Just great! Would recommend everyone to do this tour!

Very well organized excursion, the driver was very punctual and it started quickly. We saw the dolphins very soon and we were able (try) to swim with them 3 times. It was quite hectic, but once we could see the dolphins swimming by very close below or next to us. Unfortunately, with each sighting, more other boats came along, so that the 3rd sighting was almost like a battue. That was a pity. The snorkeling afterwards was very nice and relaxed. There was also a very good lunch. Drinks were free all the time! The 2nd snorkeling stop was also the fun stop with banana and couch boating and in between you could snorkel. However, the reef wasn't quite as nice as at the 1st stop. After the activities we were stuck on board for an hour because each family was individually asked to buy photo and film products. Overall it was a very nice tour with a very nice crew at an unbeatable price.

Absolutely brilliant. Was a bit concerned turning up to what looked like a building site but no worries. What a trip. We caught up with the dolphins and swam amongst behind and in front of them. About 15 at least. Then snorkeling in two further places both much better than the paradise Island trip we had done through hotel. To add to the fun we had a go on the banana boat and water sofa- hang on tight!!. The staff were brilliant fun especially with youngsters. Food was great. Definitely a trip to do and half the price of the hotel trips. Would go again if weren't going home. DO THIS TRIP if want to snorkel over other boat trips.
