A Unique experience you must live! We went for swimming with dolphins. It was great! Breathtaking! Both Rebecca and Nuno helped us not only with their experience but also with their positive mood. They were excited all the time. I can't imagine a better company.

Even though we didn't see any whales it was still a fantastic experience. You can feel the devotion and respect for the ocean and it's habitants in every single member of the team. I would always come back for another tour!
