This trip was great value. We almost immediately saw dolphins and soon after, the pilot whales. We were given lots of information (in at least 3 languages). I recommend sitting at the top of the Travellin Lady, to the left of the captain. We could see everything as soon as he spotted it

The Capital are supper nice. They also patiently explained everything for us. Like the habits for dolphins and whales. And luckily we saw them with their help. The snacks on the boat also are tasty. Conclude: excellent experience. Really recommend.

The friendliest boat staff I’ve experienced on a tour. Safety and hygiene minded. We saw pilot whales, dolphins, and even spotted a right whale. Family friendly. A great value for a family outting.

Everything was well organised, the lunch was perfect and local in a great setting. We got enough time to discover and the sides and the information was nice. I would recommend this tour!

Lovely captain and crew. Recommended for children, they will be fascinated. They could make discounts for families or groups.
