Nice crew. Beautiful day. Dolphins were amazing. My kids were totally jealous :) Some regret that I didn't buy the photos at the end, which were beautiful and reasonably priced.

I had the most amazing experience ever. We were able to see a Blue Whale!!! The Captain was so super nice and funny.

Really great, even though we couldn’t see the Wales they offered us a discount for our next booking

definitely worth buying this tour. Even if you will not see any whales.

we saw a lot of dolphins, and the price is certainly fair
