Beautiful afternoon spent on this luxurious boat. There was only five of us and two crew members which was perfect (compared to the other busy boats). I even got the change to drive the boat which was an epic experience so thank you for that! The crew were super friendly and great energy to be around. We were really lucky to see whales and dolphins. We stopped off for a swim and got to enjoy the sunset onboard with great music and a drink. Beautiful and blissful afternoon... Highly recommend

The boat is very nice and not a lot of people on board thus cozy nice atmosphere. The staff are local guys that are very friendly. Told a lot of stories about Island (do not hesitate to ask). We saw wales from very close. Super nice experience. Really recomend this boat trip.

Wir haben zwei Gruppen von Beluga Walen gesehen, hatten die Gelegenheit zum Schnorcheln Die Fahrt entlang der Küste gibt einen tollen Eindruck von der Insel. angenehmer Aufenthalt auf dem Katamaran mit aufmerksamer Betreuung von der gesamten Mannschaft.

Lovely morning at sea. We were lucky enough to see pilot whales and the weather was amazing for November. The catamaran was smaller than many in the harbour so not so many on board which was great, lots of space. Exceeded expectations.

Joao and Elmano were really amazing hosts on the beautiful catamaran. We enjoyed our time on the ocean, he had fun, we dances, we saw dolphins and we had some drinks and snacks. 100% recommended
