Terrible trip, sick everywhere. Feels really unsafe. Boat was all over the place. A group of boats headed out in different directions, then basically 1 boat finds dolphins and the rest of the boats then race at full speed to get to that area before the dolphins move on. That part of the trip was absolutely horrendous. Booked through Thomson.

We had a great time, seeing about 50 dolphins. An awesome experience that everyone should try at least once!! Thank you!!!

Took this tour as LP19 on RCCL on 5/8/16 advertised as 5 hours. Fairly expensive outing. Cruised out at back and extremely slow speeds, that appeared to be that captain had no intention of venturing out very far and was just wasting time. We went one hour from shore, spent 15 minutes looking for whales, saw no dolphins and boat... More

We went on a trip to see dolphins in their nature environment. Spirit Of The Sea offers two-hour and three-hour trips, with a guarantee to see dolphins. We choose the three-hour trip. I think it was 10 kilometers off shore where we found the dolphins. There were probably 50 of them and it was great. We even saw a whale.... More

Having grown up by the sea, I am well used to boats but the day we went out supports the experience others here have reported. As soon as we left the harbor, sick bags passed around, the boat was pitching wildly, water pouring into the lower section & guests were genuinely scared. My warning to other parents with small children... More

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

Javier Z, Gerente at Spirit Of The Sea, responded to this review

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.
