Thoroughly enjoyable trip with excellent views along the coastline and also incredible close up views of the whales and dolphins. The trip I thought was also great value for money, plus the staff on board hand out sandwiches and you can help yourself to soft drinks and beers. Highly recommend.

Really lovely experience. We very much liked the skipper’s mate/guide. Very friendly and full of information. Free drinks and a sandwich were offered. The catamaran was a peaceful way to sail out to see the dolphins and whales. We saw a. group of dolphins including a mother and baby and a pod of pilot whales. We then had a lovely swim and were able to snorkel in a bay. We enjoyed the music they played. It had us oldies dancing!

Great tour! We saw a turtle and a big family of pilot whales. It was a wonderful sight. We got pretty close to the pilot whales, one could hear them breath! Daniel and Noel are great guides, they told us interesting facts about the pilot whales and the island. We got unlimited free drinks on the boat along with tasty sandwiches! We stopped for a swim near the bay for about 20 minutes. This tour is totally worth it and I highly recommend it.
