Fantastic morning with the family, pleasant and functional boat to admire the cetaceans, perfect guide, pleasant speaking several languages PERFECTLY :) the dolphins came to play with the boat, the whales swam quietly next to the boat for the greatest happiness of my daughter !! Perfect morning

Very good organization and very nice staff. We saw a lot of dolphins and whales and had a very nice day. Unfortunately, many people got seasick on the way there, which was not so nice to see. If you have problems with that, I would recommend taking a pill beforehand.

Abbiamo visto sia le balene che i delfini. Crew simpatica e disponibile. Foto ricordo stupende ad un prezzo accessibile!

We saw many dolphins and some whales up close. The boat crew was very friendly and helpful.

Plenty of space on board and the crew was very nice!
