We hoped to see some dolphins and be lucky to swim with them, but you never know if you’ll see them or not. We did see them and had the chance to go into the water to see them up close. Tip: learn to swim with a snorkel mask. If you don’t know how to do it, the first time might feel a little overwhelming. The company, in this case Futurismo, provides you with a wet suit and a snorkel mask, so you don’t have to bring your own (or purchase it). I saw many dolphins passing me by while in the water! Some were very close, only a few meters away! They don’t come up to “play” with you but they do like the attention. Such an experience to see wild dolphins up close!
The staff was very professional, knowledgeable and easy going, always concerned about the customer´s wellbeing and safety, they did their best to ensure that groups of dolphins were found and created the best conditions to ensure the customers had the opportunity to swim with them. Even if took the trip beyond the set scheduled time. Boat was clean, geared with all the safety equipment and fit for the purpose.
This was an exhilarating experience! Safe for open water swimmers and well looked after by professional marine biologist and skipper. I recommend it to all capable swimmers.
