The boy who picked us up was a bit stupid and in a hurry at first, then in the end I really liked him, we were supposed to have a guide in Spanish on the boat, it was only in English and Portuguese thankfully one of the girls took the micro and explained us some things about the dolphins in Spanish! We saw more than 200 dolphins ... we were lucky and no whales, the tour food was very good and we visited several waterfalls

We have loved the boat trip, we have been lucky with the weather and with the sighting of cetaceans. What I did not like is that all the explanation, on the ship, has been in English when we hired the tour in Spanish. That if, with Hugo, our guide, it has been great, he spoke Spanish and was aware of everyone at all times. Thank you Hugo, you are a good professional.

Great trip and what an experience at sea. We saw dolphins and blue whales and the staff on the boat were mega good. The guide who drove us around the island was skilled and friendly and he could answer EVERYTHING. We were 4 tourists +1 guide on tour and it was absolutely perfect. The weather was great that day and we took great pictures all the places we were. The lake of fire was beautiful and the hot springs were just what we needed. We ate lunch in a small cozy place and allergies etc. were taken into account. The food was good and so was the atmosphere. We were also on another whale safari with another company and it was not as good as this one at all. This trip can definitely be recommended. It was just such a good day.
