Fantastic place to book your boat trips for whale watching. Such a friendly, conscious and warm team. A great experience - they deserve all the credits. Surely the place to be.

Brilliant. Very memorable bouncy 20 mile trip out to see whales and dolphins. Talk beforehand had a simple but memorable message.

We did not have the fortune to see whales, only one group of dolphins; but this is not the main complaint. After a lengthy ( and informative) presentation, in which the owner also goes on about "sustainability" and " eco-tourism", you are given the choice...More

While this is more expensive than other operators but I couldn't fault the trip. A biologist gave an informative talk and attention to conservation and animal welfare was evident throughout. While we didn't see any whales we thoroughly enjoyed the dolphins!

An excellenz experience for the whole family. The big and little moving sperm whale is probably more for the adult whereas the quick and playful dolphins fascinated the kids. They pay a lot of attention to the environment and a cetacean respectful approach!
