    Absolutely brilliant, prompt pickup in a nice vehicle, short drive to the dock. The staff were incredibly tentative and spoke great English (if that’s important to you). We got to see dolphins and whales which they pointed out and supplied some snorkelling gear to swim with the fish in a nice bay. The food was simple but tasty and more than enough for everyone, similarly with the drinks there was a good selection and no shortage of service. There is a small toilet on the boat if you want to get changed as well. I would bear in mind the heat and sun as while there is an interior seating area it can be understandable hot on a hot day even in the shade. In fact the sea breeze felt much cooler than sitting in the shade so just pack some good sunscreen! Thank you to the crew of the Monte Cristo for a great day out!

    I wasn't really looking forward to a boat trip in the Atlantic Ocean, but had just the best trip. We had good weather. The Catamaran was great with more than enough seating. I didn't feel they overcrowded the boat. Staff were amazing and kept us informed. We saw lots of dolphins and a few Pilot Whales, also a Turtle on the way back. The Captain respected the space of the dolphins and whales, we were very lucky they swam right in front of the boat. It was one of the best boat trips I have been on (and I have done many) The boat then went inshore a little and you could swim off the boat if you were brave enough. Snacks were served too which was lovely and the bubbles flowed the whole trip. 100% recommend.

    Everything about this excursion was perfect! Got picked up perfectly on time. The catamaran is pristine and comfortable. The cava and nibbles were perfect. We saw turtles, whales and dolphins as promised! Everyone on the boat was friendly. I had the most exceptional swim in the sea but there was nothing much to see with the mask and snorkel. I recommend this tour.
