Nice boat trip with friendly personal and beautiful wiew of the island. We saw some dolphins which was nice. The boat needs much wind to sail, but we did some sailing a little bit.

We needed a craft that was easy to board... it was. The crew were great. We didn't see any dolphins or whales - however, wildlife can be unpredictable. Stopped off to allow those who wanted to swim... they appeared to love it.

We had a great experience. We saw pilot whales, bottle nose dolphins and a sea turtle. Later we had the opportunity to swim in the sea, which I thoroughly reccommend! The crew were very helpful and knowledgeable.
