We didn't see any dolphins. We were offered a free return but it was late in our holiday so we were unable to do so. The weather wasn't bad but the boat pitched a lot leaving a number of people sick. Other larger boats heading out looked more stable. We weren't allowed into the hull to see through the windows.... More

Told us it would be good weather for dolphin safari but as soon as we got on the boat the weather was "bad weather". Two people who we talked to also wanted a refund after two trips with no dolphins, still they all blamed each other, calling police, and said we should call the boss who never answered. The ticketsales... More

Thanks for your opinion Martin, First of all I would like to say that we regret the bad luck you had with the weather, that is something that we have no influence on. If the weather conditions advise against doing the excursion, we cancel it. But it does not take a cloudless sky to see the dolphins, they are always... More

I know it is really just luck of the draw as the company cannot predict what the wild dolphins will do with certainty, but we saw a pod of what must have been over a hundred striped Dolphins. We were on the bottom deck and the Dolphins were playing in the wake of the boat and they were everywhere, it... More

We must have picked the most windy day of the year to go in search of dolphins. The boat rose to great heights and sank to the depths. But we did get to see dolphins.loads of them. It is the most amazing sight i have seen.a huge shoal of dolphins jumping out of the sea. Thank you spirit of the... More

Read some slightly worrying reviews. Yes the ship is old, we think it's being decommissioned next year, but it was spotlessly clean with fantastic crew on board. Those who gave it bad reviews must be used to a life that most of us don't have. Would recommend.

We had a very nice dolphin tour. We saw plenty of dolphins and some flying fish. At the end of the 3 hour tour the boat anchered up near the coast and we could go for a swim. The crew was very pleasant and made every effort to ensure that everyone had a enjoyable trip. We can highly recommend this... More

We booked from the hotel. Since we had rented a car, we went there by ourselves and parked at the docks (max 11 eur per day, we payed about 5 eur for 3 hours). The trip started on schedule. Near us a lot of biger ships with underwater glass windows also offered dolphin trips. We thought: hm, maybe it would... More

It seemed like a good idea at the time to take a short 2 hour trip to see some dolphins. As we exited the harbour we noticed that the sea was a little rougher than we expected. We sailed for about an hour and a half seeing nothing apart from quite a few sick bags being handed out and in... More

Me and my sister did this trip today on the 10am sailing. All was calm in the harbour but as soon as we left words can not describe! Absolutely terrifying how choppy the sea was....we were really scared. We travelled approximately an hour and a half before we saw alot of dolphins but the experience was ruined by the rocking...

Booked through TUI for a three hour trip to see dolphins with a swim stop. Pick up was slightly late but direct, was OK. Went along the coast first to see the resorts along the coast from Puerto Rico to Puerto Morgan, if you want to just do this take the taxi, we then headed of out to sea and... More
