    The activity begins with a short briefing about safety rules and the different species of cetaceans you can watch during the tour. Afterwards, we provide you with raincoats and life vests and you will be ready to embark on a 2 - 3 hour tour to see whales and dolphins. Using the technique of lookouts placed strategically on the South coast of the island, critically calculate where the best observation points are. Board a boat that departs to meet these unique animals and begin a trip which is a blend of fun, adventure, discovery and scientific knowledge. Water proof jackets and life jackets are included.

We saw 3 different types of Dolphin, a Sei whale and a blue shark, great to be out on the Sea for 3 hours in the sunshine, it may seem expensive, but if you like wildlife, give it a go, worth every penny.
