I came here with my family to have a boat trip and when we came on we saw 3 dolphins. I usually get sea sick but the boat ride was really smooth. The captains were informative. This was the best day on my holiday

Super boring. We literally got on the boat went past a couple of oil ships then came back. The advertisement for the fun boat is very misleading. I paid $18 for nothing. Huge waste of money. I do not recommend
