This trip was hyped up by the rep as a luxury inclusive trip to see the dolphins, whales and the sights plus swimming and sight seeing for 4.5 hours. What we got was very different. - Walked on to be asked to spend 5 euro if we wanted a sunbed on the front of the boat, meaning that unless you... More

We paid €24.50/person for the 3 hours session. The bus picked in the bus stop and brought us back to the same place. They offered a free food and drinks which was included in the price. They gave us a sandwich and the soft drink too. We didn't really see that many pilot whales and dolphins.

Fantastic experience! 10 mins into our 3hour trip we saw migrating Atlantic dolphins. We also saw pilot whales. The caption and the team were friendly and very informative about the boat, the wildlife and the island. We visit a little spot to do some swimming too. My 4year old daughter told everyone on board that it was daddy's birthday today... More

Went out one morning and the large freebird boat for a 3 hour sail to spot dolphins and whales. I think the success and the enjoyment of these type of trips are very dependent on weather, sea conditions and actually spotting said whales and dolphins. We were lucky enough to get everything right for our trip, sunny, calm and plenty... More

The crew were friendly and informative and made everybody feel welcome and at ease! We had glorious weather which made the trip even better! A real treat was... More

Really enjoyed this trip from start to finish. Really friendly staff and a caring attitude to the customers. Good food and the drinks kept flowing. We are semi serious whale watchers, but this relaxed fun atmosphere was brilliant. We also got lucky with our sightings with both pilot whales and dolphin. The pilot whales even gave us a display of... More
