What people are saying about Glenelg

It was such an amazing and unique experience. Staff was very helpful and made us comfortable. They gave important information and answered all questions clearly. It was not bumpy at all so it was a pleasant sailing. Nevertheless, you may consider taking ginger pills 30mins before the trip. Dolphins tended to swim near to the front deck most of the time. If you have a large group of people on board, you will get 1-2 chances at max to swim under the front deck. If you love sea life as me, this won’t be enough for you. On the other hand, I am fully satisfied what I’ve experienced. Thanks.

It's hard to put into words how incredible this experience was. We got to get in the water along with pods of wild dolphins, some of which were so close you could almost touch them as they showed off their beautiful nature. So amazing to witness the creatures in their natural habitat. It it was honestly one of the most enjoyable moments of my life. We had an exceptional and knowledgeable crew to guide us through the day and I could not recommend this trip enough!

Our sunset cruise was beautiful the views were amazing, staff were friendly & accommodating.
