We did a whale watching with Sea Colors a few days ago. We were looking for reliable people and above all respectful of the sea/the animals we were going to watch. And we definitely found them! The team leader is a marine biologist, she's very...More

This tour was an incredible experience, not just because of the actual watching and swimming but because of the people involved. The boat is small, the seats are the banana boat type, and depending on the weather the ride can turn rough, but it's all...More

Great whale watching tour. We didn’t see many dolphins, but we saw a number of whales up close. The guide seemed very knowledgeable. They can only take 12 people in a boat, so it’s not crowded. They knew where to find the animals and took...More

Great experience. We saw Sei whales, common dolphins, and Sperm whales on a morning trip with Jasmin. Jasmin is a knowledgeable marine biologist who is careful to treat the animals appropriately. The boat seats twelve and the ride can be rough, but it is well...More

Hi, I would also wait a couple of days for a reponse via email. I booked in June 2018 and they replied in two or three days. If you're in a hurry than maybe a call would work faster. Have a great trip!
