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

We had a very bad experience, all 4 where seasick and did not get anything from the trip. Unfortunate we had really heavy waves, but at least we saw the dolphins for about 2 minutes.

They warned us for a rough sea. That was an understatement. Later we heared that authorities advised against seatrips this day. A little spray and bumping first, no problem, but later followed by big waves crashing on the deck. Leaving me and my family, including my 8th month old baby, and half of the others soaking wet, still no dolphins... More

Admittedly my review is somewhat tarnished because we saw nothing but water for a full 3 hours but what the heck. You would think a complementary snack or small refund would be available for those punters who do not have the time left on their holiday to take advantage of the free second trip. At €33 a pop, this is... More

Done the morning sailing and left a little late due to bus being late collecting passengers. Set out from harbour and headed towards Mogan where the boat slowed down for pictures. We then went in search of dolphins and whales, we were sailing out for a while and it looked like we weren't going to see anything then boom......the captain... More
