We had the feeling that our crew were not that enthused about this tour. It was a scant three hours on the boat. Although we spent some time with a pod of pilot whales, very little effort was put into looking for other dolphins or whales. Interestingly two days later, on a trip following a similar route, we did see humpbacks. Not worth the money!
After an hours boat ride was beginning to loose hope of seeing any whales then was thrilled to see the tail of a sperm whale just before a deep dive. We were really pleased to have seen this and then even more thrilled to spot at least 4 more whales!! What an experience and would highly recommend
the sea was beautiful and we got free drinks during the tour. The captain and the guys who are working at the cruise they were kind and helpful.
- It was not too bad but we did not see any whales or dolphins... Only 3 dolphins what we saw but they were so far and we did not see clearly them. We know this is not the fault of the company.....
Under the back way some drunk people were with us , they were loud and it was not a relax time for us.
The staff were friendly and willing to answer any questions about the Island. However we did not see a single Dolphin or Whale on the 3hour boat ride. So it did become a bit of a mundane experience, which can be combatted with the complimentary rum punch!!!
The staff and crew were helpful and made sure we were okay by offering us drinks every now and then. the tour was ok, saw some dolphins but no whales. We were cruising for more than two hours and no one told us what was going on until someone from the deck told us to come out to see the dolphins. It could have been better if there was some entertainment or some music at least, and the staff let us know what was going on since we were cruising for so long. Providing some snacks could've been great too since we were out there for more than 4 hours.
Well being prone to motion sickness I unfortunately was... BUT... It was worth it! We saw hundreds of dolphins up close and personal, 3 sperm whales, a swordfish and many flying fish. What a fantastic day that my niece is still excited from!
They said when we left the dock we have a 70% chance of seeing whales and dolphins.
What we seen were three different pods of dolphins each a different speices.All came up beside ,ahead, and behind the boat.Some flying fish went by because this was what they were feeding on.Also a pod of Pilot Whales.All this in three hours.A must for all to see.
Trip was well organised and pick up at hotel was on time. Skipper on the boat and his crew were more than friendly and kept everyone informed as we went out into the ocean looking for whales and dolphins. Unfortunately we did not see any whales but the crew spotted some dolphins on our way back and turned the boat around. We did see quite a lot of dolphins which made the trip a rounded off the day. There was all you wanted to drink on board as well a a local rum punch which was very nice. All in all a good day out worth doing again.
