    I loved this trip it was soo cool we saw dolphins and whales but I would not recommend this trip if you get seasick easily. There where many waves and the boat was moving pretty hard. So for me it was no problem but my boyfriend got seasick about 10 minutes when we lest the port

    It was really nice, we saw dolphins and the ride was generally good. There was good information along the way and the length of the trip was appropriate. Unfortunately, the bee could not get out and swim due to Corona restrictions around bandages and distance, it was a bit of a shame that this was not described. But it was perhaps to be expected that we could not swim ... Overall a really good trip.

    I highly recommend this tour. Everything was taken care of (Corona measures ...). There was always a free seat in between, was explained in German, English and Spanish. Everything was very professional. They knew exactly where to stop to see the whales swimming by (we saw a whale with a calf). Then there was a real dolphin show and that in the great outdoors. Great!
