A nice experience for adults and children. Apart from touring and explaining the coastline of the island and the recent volcano, we were able to enjoy the dolphins and a Loggerhead turtle. Of course, if you feel dizzy, I recommend that you take something for dizziness before going up. 100% recommended.

I really liked seeing the dolphins and the coast. The pretty cave draws attention. Great maneuver to be able to enter it. We also saw a turtle getting warm and the effects of the new volcano. A nice experience. Tip: if you have a tendency to dizziness, do not go upstairs.

It seems that we were lucky because the dolphins are usually sighted, but we could even see whales a few meters away :) Experience like no other. Very interesting information from the marine biologist. IMPORTANT: if you feel dizzy, take biodramine before the activity. There were people having a bad time. I took it and enjoyed it without problems.
