Me and two friends went on this trip and it was amazing. Jnes and Rafael took us out and we had a thrilling ride across the sea to look at the caves and other beaches which was beautiful. You are warned that sightings of the dolphins are not guaranteed as they are wild animals

Comfortable boat, very scenic and we saw lots if dolphins. We all loved it but were disappointed that it was only 1.15mins when we expected 2hours. It would have been lovely to have spent the full 2hours on the trip as it was so enjoyable.

Thoroughly enjoyable trip even though we didn’t see any dolphins. The coast ride to see the caves and different rock formations was very picturesque and the ride out to sea looking for dolphins was exciting. The crew were very informative and tried hard to find The dolphins they

Dolphin safari by fast RIB ? We weren’t sure we’d see dolphins - but miles out to sea, there they were - racing past the boat, diving under the boat and jumping out of the water. Awesome and impressive. Knowledgeable and friendly crew to explain things as well. Great
