Overall rating

5.0 / 5

based on 4 reviews

We liked the small group and that the seating on the open boat felt safe. The guide was good and cheerful. The waiting/ ticketing area for the trip was easy enough to find, had free parking, and plenty of places to sit and grab a bite. If you get seasick, I suggest taking medicine before you go. The scenery was stunning.

We were able to see around 10 common dolphins. The crew was super nice and professional, and even though the sea was quite wavy, were the biologists capable of finding dolphins.

Amazing experience with a speed boat and an inside view of the caves :) Unfortunetly could not get out of the boat and go to the beach

We got to see dolphins from up close! Amazing experience and very informative too. Would definitely recommend!

The tour was so much fun! We enjoyed the interesting information provided during the boat tour.
