The staff was brilliant and personable. The tour was educational and pleasant. We saw two types of dolphins and listened to a whale. The facilities and boat were fantastic. If you’re going whale/dolphin watching, this is the company to choose.

I took a tour to Nordeste, which is the most green part of the island. The tour guide told us a lot of interesting things about the island, its history, people and habits. Great 3 course lunch with drinks included.
