Quite nice just that it was too cold that day. It is totally unguided and you are left on your own to find dolphins. At least we saw some from afar.

At Onuhu Farm Hostel we booked a Kayak trip with MAFI's for $50 each. We had a kayak tour with Hector dolphins, blue penquins. There was a lot of information regarding local nature.

We had a great morning with Mafi's trip. Beautiful location, lots of wildlife, small groups and great value for money! Could have benefited from some more information about the area, wildlife, etc. but overall we had a wonderful time.

Amazing, the whole focus is on the nature. You are a real part of it together with the dolphins.
