The driver was punctual, friendly and drove great! Our guides were great and explained everything, including the dolphins - that you should watch them with respect from a distance and enjoy the moment (I thought that was great, considering how some people jumped into the water like crazy hunters and went to the dolphins and unfortunately they have missed it again and again!!!). The snorkeling and eating afterwards was also great!👍

It was great! We saw so many dolphins, even up close! The food was varied and very tasty and the staff was super nice. The weather wasn't ideal, so unfortunately we didn't go snorkeling on a reef but in the open sea, but it was still very nice!

Average lunch but we don't come for that. The setting of Le Morne, the giant clam island and meeting the Dolphins are more than enough...

Top crew, we were able to see the dolphins, we ate well, it's a large, very spacious and comfortable catamaran! I recommend

Dolphins were very nice. It's a shame that even though we were booked in German, there wasn't a German guide with us
