Windy winter boat tour
Merritt_M

Loved loved loved experiencing and exploring the caves. I wasn’t about going out to see looking for dolphins, it was way too windy and they told us to begin with there weren’t any dolphins seen today. I would have been happy to just go back through all of the caves. But the guides were kind and gave just the right amount of info. We all really appreciated it!

Easily one of our top experiences in Albuferia
Matthew_A
, Aug 2021
What an experience this was! Our tour guide and driver (both named Raphael) were incredible. They stopped us at key site where we could take pictures along the way and gave great explanations on what we were seeing. We saw a huge pod of Dolphins, which we were really lucky to have seen so early on in the tour, and whilst the Insonia ride was bumpy it was easily one of the best experiences we have had. Would 100% recommend!

Too long and dull

Way too long, especially considering that we saw no dolphins. Dull experience, but a few good moments of cave watching.

Hello Nik, Firstly, I wanted to Thank-you for bringing this issue to my attention. We strive at Dream Wave for all our guests to have an experience that exceeds their expectations, however, unfortunately, there may be times when we are slightly off target. This is why we appreciate all forms of feedback, good or bad, so we can sort any issues in the future. We have various types of tours with different lengths ranging from 30 minutes to 6 hours. Maybe next time we would suggestion a shorter tour for you. We would like to apologise for you finding our tour a dull experience, even though we cannot agree.
