While this is more expensive than other operators but I couldn't fault the trip. A biologist gave an informative talk and attention to conservation and animal welfare was evident throughout. While we didn't see any whales we thoroughly enjoyed the dolphins!

An excellenz experience for the whole family. The big and little moving sperm whale is probably more for the adult whereas the quick and playful dolphins fascinated the kids. They pay a lot of attention to the environment and a cetacean respectful approach!
