Extremely well put together. It was a small group on a really nice boat. Snacks and fresh fruit with good quality wine. Snorkeling was fun. The 2 guides were so personable and friendly. Really great tour. Highly recommend!!

Our trip was cancelled last minute due to an issue with the crew. No other explanation given and no attempt to reschedule us. Frustrated.
Truly amazing experience
, Mar 2021
This was a once in a lifetime experience! We were able to see a group of about 6-8 dolphins including 1-2 little ones that swam alongside our boat and many times came directly underneath, as if they were trying to entertain us! According to our captain to see so many at once is a very rare treat indeed! I highly recommended this experience!
Rip off never book with Viator or Echo
, Jan 2021
Worst experience I have ever had with a tour. Trip cancelled because the captain recked the boat and required coastguard inspection so they moved date from Wednesday to Saturday and since we were heading home before the trip they refused refund!
