    Recommended boat tour! Nice guides! We saw some dolphins. The captain went to various spots where they knew dolphins were sighted that day. The guides were very considerate of the animals so as not to stress them. When the boat was standing you could take pictures at the railing without any problems. We got some information about the dolphins during the tour and shortly before the end and the guides were also happy to answer any questions. Also recommended with children!

    At first I had a few concerns about whether this tour would be worthwhile or whether it would be one of those tourist rip-offs. But none of that. After a 20-minute ride in the very good boat (other providers don't have boats that inspire confidence), we saw the first dolphins. We were slowly driven up to them and were able to watch the 20 or so animals for at least 30 minutes. One had the feeling that the guide really cared about the welfare of the animals and we were told a lot about the species we saw. In the end the dolphins were only about 2 meters away from the boat (we didn't forcefully follow them and we didn't cast any bait either). I actually didn't really expect to see dolphins, but I was disabused. Then we drove along the cliffs back to the port. Definitely pack a sweater with you. Can really only recommend.

    We had trouble finding the meeting point and they were nice enough to hold the boat a few minutes so that we could find them. Aside from that, we saw tons of dolphins on our trip. It took us over thirty to forty minutes to find them, but once we did, they were everywhere. Definitely an amazing experience and I am so glad we did it.
