From the booking to the end everything went well. The sun stayed away, so no sunset either, but we saw a lot of dolphins. The crew on the boat were very friendly and fun and stayed until the end even when the bus driver was late picking us up at the end.

A very nice walk, although we did not see dolphins. The crew very attentive, helpful and very friendly. The food that they put on board is very abundant and the drinks too. It is worth it and we will surely repeat when we return to the island.

The crew is fantastic and they entertained us until we started seeing dolphins, to which is added being able to see the sunset and say goodbye to the Sun with a volcanic landscape in the background. Super recommended.

Fantastic staff, we saw baby whales! Really enjoyed the Champagne & cake at the end, gave us an opportunity to talk to the other tourists.

It was very nice, there was food and drinks too. We didn't see any dolphins, but the sunset tour was still worth it :)
