This tour is really highly recommended. Hotel pickup went smoothly. Of course you have to be aware that you might not see any dolphins and the guides have no influence on that. However, they try very hard to find them. Shortly before the end of the tour we spotted two beaked whales that swam really close to the boat. But exploring the island by speedboat is also recommended. An incredible experience!

It was superb from beginning to end! What a wonderful day we had. Family of 5, mum, dad two teens 17&19 and our 8 ye old and there was jokes and laughs for all ages, my teens enjoyed as much as my 8yr old. The pirates (staff) we so funny, kind, attentive and very entertaining!

The guys running the experience were super nice and went above and beyond to give us a great experience, we did not see any dolphins, but that is nature I guess, and the whole trip was still well worth it

Very funny ride, Caesar and Mauricio are entertaining. We have seen dolphins and flying fish but unfortunately no whales. But it’s nature. The guides are very respectful to it and know and tell you a lot.

Recommended trip! We were in the Atlantic for 1.5 hours and after a while we saw a lot of dolphins!
