Two pods in one go
, Jun 2019
This 1.5hr cruise was really nice. We saw one pod with ~5-6 dolphins. Then the captain got a call from another boat saying there was a huge pod somewhere else and, although we didn't have much time left, he headed their way, and we got to see this huge pod (with >30 dolphins) for around 15min before heading back. The captain was really friendly and allowed our children (7y) to take a peek in the cabin. It was very, very special.
Saw so many dolphins

We went in autumn so spent the whole tour looking for dolphins. We saw a lot thanks! (Only comment would be nicer coffee).
