What an exceptional moment! The boat is magnificent and Yuri, our skipper, shared his passion for the ocean with us for our greatest pleasure. A great moment of happiness for the children and us when we were able to see dolphins and whales. Finally the sandwich, after swimming, is a specialty of Yuri with its manufacturing secrets. A real moment of pleasure, in contact with nature and with respect for the marine environment. Thank you.

Yuri was an amazing capitan! We saw both dolphins and pilot whales, just a few miles away from Puerto Colon, and got to swim a little in the sea. We had a great time, and it felt almost like a private sail, as we only share the boat ride with a couple of girls. recommended

We are a family of five with three children aged 9-12 and we thoroughly enjoyed this trip. It was the kids’ first time on a sailing boat and despite cloudy weather it was really enjoyable. Seeing dolphins and whales close up was fantastic.

Nice boat with pleasant captain. We saw lots of dolphins, whales and even a hammerhead shark. Food was great. Always happy

Cool to buggy, easy to handle and at the same time we visit the corner. All with a very nice guide
