Dolphin discovery tour

Get to see the beautiful scenery of bays of islands during the cruise as well as pods of lovely dolphins. It was a great experience.

National Geographic Standard

Incredible experience! Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. It took 2 hours before we spotted a pod of dolphins. Unfortunately we were unable to swim as there was a baby dolphin. The pod of 10 put on a magnificent show for us, swimming under the boat, flips in the air and leaping out the water. Would highly recommend!

Great day out

Awesome experience, so gutted we didnt get to swim with dolphins since a bigger boat stole them from us. Was amazing seeing the dolphins out in the wild. Would recommend this trip to anyone! Brilliant experience!
