Very very interesting outing, due to the history of the coasts and even by the feeling provided by the small boat. The dolphins are the highlight of the show, to do. Slt to Daniel and his colleague and Thank you

The early morning tour was the best as you have the beach to yourself and of course seeing the sunrise and the changing of the colors was the whole point right.
