The welcome is very warm. The team is very caring. Very nice catamaran cruise, but dolphins can be seen from afar in the murky water. The photo does not correspond to the visit. I will change the hook of the activity.

Our family enjoyed every minute of the 2 hour cruise, we even saw a few dolphins out there. The crew were very kind and professional. Have fun if you decide to take this ride.
