Incredible experience swimming amongst a super pod of dusky dolphins.
Small boat with small number of participants made this a very special experience. Staff and crew were excellent.
Cannot recommend highly enough, worth every cent.

Good and informative service. Professional staff that make you feel comfortable, safe and well taken care of at all times. Very cold water!! But absolutely wonderful experience swimming with the dolphins and seals.

Unforgettable experience, nice employees, great photo opportunities, nice to see the animals in the wild. Seasickness! But the employees did care for us.

Fabulous! 200 dolphins, a lot of interaction with them. Long time in the water so worth the money!
