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.

Absolutely incredible experience! The crew were amazing and very informative. You were in the water for such a large amount of the time and all the equipment is included as well as an amazing video of the experience if you want to purchase (worth it!). I’ve never done/seen anything like this, just amazing! Will definitely be going back sooner rather than later!
