This was money well spent! We were lucky enough to see three dolphin pods on our trip. I think the crew were as excited as we were The crew were friendly and knowledgeable and kept us informed of places of interest on the way there and back. The only thing Iwould recommend is if you go on the 10.00am trip to take a sweater as it is chilly on the water until the sun comes out. A great experience!

It was 3 hours well spent aboard a catamaran from the company Dauphin Bay, on the river Sado, not only to enjoy the landscape, but mainly to see dolphins, and thanks to the professionalism of the friendly crew, the visualization was successful with dozens of dolphins interacting with the boat making approaches to it and accompanying it showing off its skills with its jumps. So I strongly advise you to experience this river tour in SADO.

It was fantastic! It is very good to know that it is a tourist activity hand in hand with science. Money well spent, for the cause is very noble. I was happy with the choice, service, boat, all possible ecological details, explanations.. it inspires confidence and above all I felt that whoever was there had a huge taste for what they do and for the whole project. Congratulations!!
