Wonderful day trip with great guides on a beautiful boat. We were collected and dropped back to our hotel. The sail boat is really nice and comfortable. Has lovely area at the front to sit comfortably and view the dolphins and whales. Area at the back to sit and enjoy the drinks and wonderful food provided. Area below with toilet facilities and area to get changed. Lovely area to snorkle with the snorkles and mask being provided. The guides were very friendly and knowledgeable as well as being able to accommodate in multiple languages. The guides were also able to deal with my partners gluten allergy as well as sudden bursts of seasickness in our group. I spoke to different travellers on other tours we did about whale watching tours they purchased and I am very happy with the decision we made to book this one.

I can't recommend this activity highly enough. Eileen and Jaime, our guides, were friendly, informative, and attentive to any needs for drink/food/seasickness(!). They hit the balance of providing information whilst also sitting back and letting you enjoy the peace of the waves. I was impressed with their care for the environment - they held back from getting too close to a pod of whales to avoid overcrowding them, and fished up some discarded rope from the water as we passed. My only wish was that we had more time!

This is absolutely the dolphin/whale watching tour to purchase. It is worth spending a little more to enjoy yourself soooo much more!!!. You are not packed on a boat like cattle and the Capitan and. Guides are exceptional in their knowledge of the the ocean habitat. I learned the culture of both the dolphin & pilot whale families. I was able to relaxed & felt like I was treated like family with courtesy and respect, The whales and dolphins are treated with courtesy and respect. This is the perfect excursion with a good snack a little wine, juice, water or honey rum add a snorkel experience at Los Giantos Cliffs, before returning to the harbor. I have PTSD and in this I actually found JOY in this experience. Ahoy is elusive at best for me so that is say a lot. Thank you
