I really enjoyed this fantastic trip, where we were lucky enough to be a very small group and to see lots of dolphins and even one whale + calf despite difficult weather conditions.
The boat is great for whale watching, as it's a catamaran and you can stand right at the tip of the boat (if you're not afraid of getting wet) and have the dolphins swimming literally all around you.
I'm also a bird enthiusiast and the birding was great - lots of sea birds and a very knowledgeable captain.
Only reason for not getting a 10/10 from me : the price is rather expensive.

Good organisation. Nice guides. Many information about dolphins. But we only saw one baby dolphin and it was not allowed to swim with them..

Unable to book swim due to ocean conditions. So wet as a sightseer only. Heavy seas so nobody able to swim as cold not fun/dophins - full money paid back.

Nice afternoon out on the sea with heaps of dolphins, but no whales! No guarantee for whales apparently, but still very informative and relaxed.
