We were planning to go with one of the companies that has RIB boats and were disappointed they were all fully booked. We 'settled' for this as we didn't want to miss the dolphins. Waiting for the departure time the skipper turned out to be...More

It was an absolute fantastic experience! We spotted a lot of dolphins and they swam right besides and underneath the boat. There's no better way to see the dolphins that close. The boat is quite small so make sure to make a reservation beforehand.
