What people are saying about Atlantic Ocean

We had a great time. The whole game took 4 of us about an hour and 20 minutes and was really good fun. The surroundings are lovely and the course is quite tricky in places. The only improvement I would suggest would be somewhere to leave your bags etc.

It was amazing seeing all those caves and amazing coastline. After that we went out to open sea to spot some dolphines and we found them - about 12-15 of them swimming and jumping out of water. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

Although there is no official guide on the boat, the crew turns out to be very knowledgeable and helpful.

Jack is really funny guy. Orgazation was great, perfect experience.

The views from the botanical gardens cable car are magnificent.
