    Unvergessliches Erlebnis für klein und groß. Die Delphine sind einfach magisch. Unser Guide war ebenfalls genial! So viele Infos, alle Fragen wurden beantwortet - unter anderem über das Leben der Delphine, Umweltschutz (Plastik wurde aus dem Meer gefischt während unserer Fahrt), wie sich der Umgang mit den Delphinen gestaltet (sie werden weder gefüttert noch berührt etc.) Die Fahrt mit dem Boot war ebenfalls ein Highlight und auf die ausgiebigen Beobachtung der Tiere folgte die Rückfahrt entlang der höhlenreichen Küste mit weiteren interessanten Informationen vom Vogelreich über die Höhlen sowie die Besiedelung und Nutzung des Gebietes. Zum Abschluss gabs noch eine süße Überraschung (sehr g'schmackig ;) Sehr gut organisiert, es wurde alles klar kommuniziert. Ansonsten sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und unterhaltsam. Danke für diesen tollen Tag!
