Important information

What to bring

  • Towel
  • Swimwear

Know before you go

  •  Bring a towel, your swimming costume and spare clothes to change into after swimming
  • Wear comfortable and breathable clothing
  • A light jacket is recommended
  • Bring your sunglasses and high SPF sunscreen. There is a shaded area on the boat but the reflections from the sea means you will burn faster than usual
  • To avoid getting seasick, rest the night before as without rest you are more prone to get seasick. Avoid drinking alcohol the night before because alcohol dehydrates the body. If you do drink alcohol, drink plenty of water to reduce dehydration and minimize the effects. You should be hydrated, but not full of liquids. Eat something before the cruise as it is important not to be hungry. Don’t eat fatty or acidic foods before sailing

It was my first time on a sailboat which was very fun. We saw migrating sperm whales and dolphins. The guides spoke many languages and were very friendly, but didn't provide much information about the animals. They were respectful of the wildlife by not getting too close, but that meant it was also difficult to see the marine life that well. Good sandwiches and drinks provided. Would've liked to be out searching for wildlife longer - the second hour and a half was spent with a slow cruise back to the cliffs and the option to jump in the water.

Very nice tour, very well organized, with punctual pick-up at the hotel, perfectly prepared and cleaned boat, very nice crew, there were many explanations about the whales, there were drinks, snacks and fruit on board, great spot for snorkeling, communication about the process and pick up was perfect. There is nothing that could have been better. We saw whales and dolphins and had loads of fun on the boat. I can absolutely recommend this organizer (Third Element Charters) !!!
