We had an absolutely fantastic time on this tour. We had great weather and the boat was very comfy - especially on the loungers on the front of the catamaran. The crew were helpful and informative - learning about the wildlife in the area was very interesting.
The crew had sighted an atlantic spotted dolphin in the distance so we headed towards it, and a whole pod of dolphins turned up and raced the boat. It was amazing! I'd never seen dolphins in the wild so I was already impressed, but even the other seasoned travellers commented on how unusual it was to see so many at once. They followed the boat for a long time, even when we tried to leave. We also saw a big Loggerhead Turtle, but he wasn't as bothered and didn't hang around for long.
We spent too long with the dolphins so we didn't get chance to swim under the Cabo Girao cliffs, but we didn't mind at all. As we sailed back towards the harbour, the crew provided a lot of information about the buildings and places of interest we could see on land.

What a wonderful experience and the crew were very well informed. On the day the sun was out and we saw a family of pilot whales, several spouts and tails of sperm whales and fly fish. It was a wonderful experience.

Unfortunately we didn’t get to see any dolphins but the view was amazing, the crew explained gave us a little information as we were passing through places and stopped to take a swim. The view was just stunning and even if we didn’t get to see dolphins I would totally do it again.

The tour was great, we didn't go with any expectations of what we would see but seeing a Female Bryde Whale and her calf was fantastic! The boat is great too, modern and has everything you need in a very spacious cabin. For the more adventurous you can sit outside on the sunbeds or on the nets
