I was attracted to Dolswim because of the programs offered and the reviews. We booked and were not disappointed. It's not a cheap tour but you will get value for money.
We booked the 'swimming with dolphins' tour. Program details were clear.
The meet-up location is hard to find. It's a tiny street somewhere in a small waterfront village. We looked it up on Google maps the night before and wrote down a detailed description. This helped us to find the place in time.
The boat we were assigned was a great and comfortable speed boat. Briefing was very clear and detailed. I like especially the attention and respect they have towards the dolphins and whales. Also they are very considerate for special needs that clients might have. Appreciated.
First we encountered a number of whales, while looking for dolphins. Finally we found a large school of dolphins, about 150, a bit far off. So we swam with the dolphins. Basically snorkeling in the ocean in front of a group of dolphins just before these will catch up. When the dolphins catch up they will pass you left, right, under, possibly even above :-) It's really a great fantastic experience seeing all these dolphins around you, so close in the water. REALLY great! :-)
One of the people of Dolswim on the boat is the guide and will join you in the water (always two clients and one guide).
We (2) were the only people on the boat able to swim. Meaning that we got to swim with dolphins several times :-)
But in my opinion, if you can't swim, this tour is much less enjoyable. Even you can still see the dolphins (and whales) from the boat... the BIG fun is to be IN the water.. swimming with the dolphins.
