We did the 4 hour dolphin tour (last one for season) and would have been happy with the views from the ocean! Saw oodles of dolphins. Good size boat, didn't feel crowded. Having an aero plane help locate dolphin groups is brilliant!

A great way to spend the afternoon on the water. Tour along the coast to Monaco and back with a nice travelogue in English and French and Italian. Nice crew on board.
