The crew worked so hard spotting and on the way back they changed direction to take us to see two sperm whales. Very knowledgeable guide who is clearly passionate about sea life and so very keen to share his knowledge. Highly recommended

Terrible, waste of money and rude staff

We did not see any wildlife at all, they simply drove us to the middle of the ocean did not explain what they were doing and before we knew it they had already turned back without telling us a thing. He then proceeded to explain to everyone excluding a few other English couples what we were looking at. Terrible, don’t waste your money.

Thank you for your comment. The observation of cetaceans is not guaranteed. Our crew does everything for the best, but the animals don't always show up. They are in their natural habitat.

Seeing dolphins and pilot whales was amazing! The crew were all very nice too. We went to another beautiful part of the island where we we able to swim in the sea, the kids really enjoyed it. Could have done with more snorkels!

Great trip, we saw 11 Piolet Whales and a pod of 100 Rough tooth dolphins! Crew were great providing explanations. Only downside, the snorkeling. We were taken to a fabulous place by amazing cliffs along the coast, allowed to get in to the water some distance from the coast - to deep to snorkel - called back when we made our way closer to the shore. All in all, we had an amazing time, thank you.

We’ve seen a big group of pilot wales it was amazing. We stayed a bit with them and it doesn’t felt like we hunt them, so i had a good feeling too.

Really good 3 hours out on the sea, 31 degrees C. The crew went out farther than usual as some dolphins were spotted. Had a pod of around 6 following the boat and jumping out of the water. Stopped for a swim at Gabo Girou. Excellent afternoon. Highly rated.
