When I first saw free bird one I was impressed but that's where the good things end. We got on the boat and luckily me and my partner were at the front so we managed to grab a sun bed but these were charged €5pp and was suppose to get waiter service but we didn't have any had to go... More

We had a 3 hour trip on Freebird in April. It was amazing! We saw a great number of short finned pilot whales whilst also having a brilliant time just relaxing at sea. Staff were helpful and handed out sandwiches and free drinks. We had a vegetarian with us who unfortunately wasn't provided for initially however, the staff were happy... More

Whale watching experience was just superb! We went there for Christmas break so I was expecting Catamaran will be very overcrowded but it wasn't! There was plenty of space for everyone to walk around and sit. Saw many dolphins and whales(small ones). Staff was really nice and helpful. Unlimited drinks were available throughout the tour. I personally felt Catamarans was... More

We have just returned from our 3 hour morning boat ride on Freebird One. The staff are very friendly and extremely approachable, especially if you have any problems or questions. Throughout the trip there is a multilingual commentary service and you can purchase photos 4 for €20 and a luxury sunbed for €5 pp which I would highly recommend you... More

I had a 3 hour morning boat ride on Freebird One. The staff are very friendly and approachable if you have any problems or questions. The highlight of the trip was seeing some Short-finned Pilot Whales and Bottlenose Dolphins close-up (the boat will slow down when you find them so there is plenty of time to have a look). The...

Went on this trip with my two daughters aged 6 and 8 and we had a fabulous time. Obviously being on the sea can be deceptive so plenty of sun cream!!! You may also wish to bring a warm top as there is a sea breeze. Setting off we took in the sights of the coast and had various talks... More

We booked an afternoon excursion for 2 adults and 2kids (9+11) for €90 and were advised to turn up a bit earlier to get a place on the nets at the front which was good advice. Only one issue was that you had to pay an extra €10 euros for the bean bags which seat 2 on the nets. So... More

I would recommend a morning boat trip as the waters are calmer and makes for a more pleasant ride. The wildlife in particular the dolphin species are also more likely to be found at this time. If possible pick a hot day too. There are sun pillows available to rent for 10 euros and this is worth it considering the... More

My husband and I have today taken this trip with Freebird. We booked it through Thomson on arrival at our hotel last week. It has been the best day of our ten day holiday, and a great last day for us. We paid extra (only a little) to go on the adults only trip and I would highly recommend it.... More
