I would say €30 very well spent - a great 2 hour trip at 10am before it got too windy. We saw striped dolphins, a family of pilot whales and some playful bottlenose dolphins! FIRMM were great, clear and well organised and explained things in...More

What everyone wants is, of course, a guaranteed sighting of a pod of whales, even though we know it can't be done. Given this, Firmm do a great job. The introductory talk is fascinating for both adults and children, the guide informative and knowledgeable. The...More

You reviewed the wrong company. You confirmed us that you did the boat trip on the 06th of July. Firmm did not do any boat trips on that day because of the windy weather conditions. You promised to remove your comment as obviously you got...More

We had a flexible schedule so we booked our trip 3 days before, on the day with the best weather. We took the two hour boat trip at 11am. Picking up the tickets went perfectly, they speak several languages there, so it’s really accessible even...More
