Seeing the pilot wales was amazing. The biologist on board was very knowledgeable and had an entertaining delivery style. The boat was lovely and clean but could have done with a bit more outside seating.

No dolphins They do not work with a spotter to ensure you actually see dolphins when you hit the water. Better to book with H2O, there they spot the dolphins before going.

Dear Kim, Thank you for your feed back and sorry you did not see any wild life. But it can happen even with the spotters. How ever, we use spotters for our power boat and that is working completely diffrent then the Catamaran. But if you like to come along one more time feel free to contact me. Regards Umut

A disappointing day

Sadly we didn't see any wildlife and where the boat stopped to allow us to swim wasn't suitable for snorkeling either as it was too far out. A very disappointing experience especially when the advert states that sightings of wildlife are guaranteed!

Went on the 9:30 trip, only about 30 people on the catamaran, which gave everyone plenty of room to move around, especially when we were following a group of dolphins. Commentary from Josephine and Francesco were great!!
