Went out with the H20 team today. Very friendly staff and the owner could not have been more helpful. They certainly know their stuff and we saw two dolphin species. They have had a 100% success rate in 2016 and so far in 2017. Boat was much more comfortable than it looks. They only go out when conditions are suitable.... More

We had a great morning on this trip. Dolphin and whale watching. We didn't see any whales thought, but hundreds of dolphins. The boat you are in is nice an low to the sea so you can see the dolphins really well and get pretty close. The guys on the trip were really knowledgeable, and spoke different languages to accommodate... More

I have done quite a few whale/dolphin watching trips so far in various parts of the world but this must have been the best one! Tours are run by very friendly and knowledgeable guys who always ensure dolphins and other animals are approached with respect. And seeing or swimming with wild, happy dolphins is an experience that doesn't really need... More

I had a fabulous day. I got to watch Spotted Dolphins above the water and I got to see them underwater with the swimming package. I am still smiling at the experience. Would recommend it to those who don't mind being in the open sea.
