Exceeded expectations. A much more natural tour than those practiced in the area, a catamaran makes all the difference. With a deep sea dive, the commitment of the crew to see dolphins and their friendliness and professionalism, we really enjoyed it. I would like to add that consumption on board does not exceed the prices normally charged. Drinks were very well served and there was plenty of variety. I highly recommend Discover tours.

friendly crew, and the boat was not overcrowded. didn't go in the caves but that wasn't a big deal. The caves and water were full of people, so I was glad we didn't get of the boat! there is a bar on the boat where you can buy drinks, make sure to bring some cash

Absolutely perfect ! There were 10 of us on the boat (capacity ~ 50 people) which is very beautiful and comfortable. We were able to stop for 1 hour to stand up paddle in an idyllic location and then we sailed along the coast near the caves. Extremely nice and friendly staff. Really a great memory, we recommend 100%. —— Absolutely perfect! We were 10 on the boat (maximum capacity of 50 people) that is beautiful and comfortable.
