This trip is amazing. We booked the afternoon trip and took off at 1500. Small crowd -we were with 10-, nice knowledgable crew and yes, we saw plenty of Dolphins. There was time for a swim and we were treated wirh a drink and some small bites. The perfect afternoon activity.

Loved this trip. It was like having a private charter. Other boats were crowded and had no cover from the sun. Drinks and snacks were included. Staff were super friendly and knowledgeable.

We were only about 15 people on the catamaran. Super comfortable. Great view of the island from the water. There were also warm snacks and drinks. With swim stop. Absolute recommendation!

Not as crowded as on other tours, wind in your face and great visibility. The team is in a good mood and jumping into the water makes the experience fun even in cool temperatures.

Fun and relaxing trip with the crew of the Pearl. Dolphins swimming with the boat, amazing.
