Customer Reviews

It was great! Had a blast going on this trip. Definitely worth the money - Simonne Van der Beek

Wonderful trip we was very lucky to see dolphins seals and a mother and baby whale jumping and displaying for us, staff were amazing friendly and made our trip I would highly recommend. - Kim baker

We went on a whale watching tour with a group of us (20) unfortunately no whales were spotted but it was the last few days of the season. Our guides were amazing, full of energy and information. We saw dolphins and lots of seals, i would definitely recommend this trip and do this again! - Oliver Wilkinson

We didn't see wales close to the boat or jumping. It was really sad to me because I want to see wales very much. But we saw alot of dolfins and it was amazing! - Marina

We weren't lucky that day, as whales were almost undetectable Nonetheless we appreciated the offer of a free cruise in the next days, even if we had to renounce for time constrain. This offer, as well as the politeness of personnel at the office and on the boat, will bring our intention to advertise this tour among our friends. - luigi michielin
