This activity can be conditioned by the weather and conditions of the sea. We can, in case of bad weather or uncomfortable sea conditions, cancel the trip by fully refunding the amount paid or rebooking the trip to another time.

Our tours are subject to weather and sea conditions. In the event of unfavorable weather conditions, we will contact you to reschedule or provide a refund.

NOIt is very important to be aware that this is a 100% natural tour in the open wild and not a zoo! Therefore we can never guarantee for sure that cetaceans will be sighted, but we can promise we will do our best to find them.

NO. We will try our best to find cetaceans for more than 2h00, and we can search for a little bit more ( if the skipper determines the conditions are good to continue). However, if the tour starts but the sea is unexpectedly rough the tour may be cancelled with refund.

Magical and informative

Made a last minute decision to book this tour and am very glad I did. The guides were very friendly and informative. We saw 3 different species of dolphin and a turtle, and learned about the animals and the environment, as well as the important research they are doing.
