Brilliant morning. Dolphins everywhere. Saw a huge pod working together to herd sardines to surface with gannets also dive-bombing to feed. Magical. The RIB ride is fun as well. The skipper and guide were excellent and very informative. Thanks both.

Loved this. We were out for almost three hours and loved every minute of it. Took a while to find the dolphins which was fine as the RIB boat zipping about on the sea was a lot of fun in itself, but once we saw...More
