Wow what a fantastic experience. I know the chance of seeing whales was not very high so when we saw so many I was just blown away. We saw pilot whales, sperm whales and white tip sharks. I wasn't sure about swimming with dolphins at first but the skippers (Ronaldo and Fabio) were clear about respecting them and how to keep safe for both you and the marine life so I felt comfortable. Oh I am so glad I did! It was just a brief moment but swimming above and along side 3 dolphins was unbelievable. The snorkeling after was great too. Thank you for the wonderful memories Ronaldo and Fabio.

Unique and exciting experience! We got lucky and found tons of dolphins that we swam with. Special thanks to our guides Sydney and Jordan who helped us meet and see dolphins up close. A must try! Chiara & Simon

This was very good, well planned, well trained and friendly staff. Saw and swam with loads of dolphins. What a great experience.
