What and exciting day we had dolphin watching... First we flew across the ocean in the Rib boat, the waves were a little high so the ride was a bit like a roller coaster up and down but an absolute blast!!! We stopped 3 times to see if we could see the dolphins but they were being shy that day, but the captain had one more area up his sleeve for us to visit....And to our amazement and amusement we found a pod of approx. 20, jumping in and out of the water and under and around the boat....An experience for all of us that day since we all came from landlocked areas of our respective countries...Would highly recommend this!!!! Enjoy!!!Trevor SingletonUK

It is the fastest boat I ever went on! The Grotto and fishing trips are beautiful as well! The Dolphin watching trips are definitely one of the most impressive ways to enjoy the ocean and the wild life 🙂 the staff is very honest and friendly! I would definitely recommend!Lars and Eva AlbrektssonSweden

Watch out for a guy called George "Goody Goody". Barking mad, but makes the tour highly entertaining!Tony & SarahCornwall
