We opted for the marine discovery cruise. Two hours wasted, the glass bottom boat had 5 panes, all of which which were useless because of the wake of the boat across them. We saw two dark shapes in the seagrass off the side of the...More

An amazing thing to do. A must if you visit the island. Very well organised so a large number of people can engage whilst respecting that the dolphins are wild.

Wonderful experience. The dolphins are wild but seem tamed. Very well organized. Eco centre is full of interesting facts about the dolphins.

Hopefully the dolphin feeding is included in your package because it is good to do. Great experience, there didn’t seem to be as many people as usual so we were given multiple fish to feed the dolphins. We feed Rani :-)

A great experience but pricey and very commercial with a couple of minutes standing in the water then move along for next couple of people. If you can't afford though it's great to watch from the jetty next to it for free.
