Wonderful experience
The trip was great and we could even see a baby dolphin swimming with his family. So beautiful!! We were fascinated by it. Even though it's winter we could see a lot of dolphins.

Didn't disappoint
Loads of companies promise to see dolphins this one delivered. Great value too. The lads on the speed dinghy are very chatty, helpful and knowledgeable. The ride out after the caves was exhilarating...not recommended for bad back sufferers. Best dolphin spotting ever. A large shoal spotted and dived and jumped around us for 20 mins or so with mostly engine off some minutes we sailed on low engine and the dolphins had fun chasing us. Top notch company. Ps 1.wear swimwear. You will get soaked. 2. Take a go pro. 3. Don't take a hand bag unless it's waterproof.
