This was absolutely incredible! Even as a non-swimmer, I was able to relax and enjoy the experience! I requested a noodle to keep my feet up, so I didn't have to worry about floating. Both young intern and guide were very friendly and professional.

Half day on the boat to watch the dolphins: The team is super nice, they know where to find the dolphins and they adapt the tour to the client. The snacks and sandwiches are good. Super good vibes, we definitely recommend!

Yes, there is a head (sea toilet) on the boat. Highly recommend you use the facilities at the harbor before you leave.

My sister is 5 months pregnant and she went on the manta tour - was no problem, just sat further back in the boat for a smoother ride.
