Swimming with dolphins was a great experience! We were lucky and saw a lot of animals up close. The boat ride alone was great! A lot of dolphins jumped around us and we were able to collect a lot of great memories. The guide and the captain were very nice and explained a lot. In everything, a lot of consideration was given to the dolphins, so that they could decide for themselves how much to show themselves. I would choose this excursion again at any time.

Fantastic! Not guaranteed that you will see dolphins, but luckily we did see them. You briefly enter the water a few times in groups of three when the dolphins swim nearby. The ride in the boat was also nice with a beautiful view of the island and the dolphins that sometimes swim next to the boat. Well worth it. Good explanation of the guide

We always felt safe and the guides prepared us well. The equipment that was provided to us was also good and in good condition. They could tell us a lot and we were allowed to watch the dolphins underwater several times. I also found it good that not all 10 were allowed into the water at the same time, so you had enough time and space to watch or watch the dolphins. to admire. All participants were allowed to enter the water the same number of times.
