Really great experience from pick up. We saw whales, turtles and an enormous pod of dolphins, even getting a chance to jump in for a swim. Whilst there was no ‘tour’ as such to describe the area or the wildlife itself it’s not a drawback unless you find having more information a necessity.

Great excursion! We saw HUNDREDS OF DOLPHINS!!! It was completely insane, in the best way. I had no idea they traveled in such enormous pods. We also saw a couple of humpback whales (!!!), seat turtles, manta rays, and even sea snakes! I highly recommend this activity. Just make sure you use the bathroom before you get on the boat because it's a small speedboat and you will be on it for 3+ hours!
