Lovely old boat with a bit of character. No rush and skilful crew. Knew where to find the whales and took time once they had found them. They took care not to harass the animals. This was our second trip and was just as good...More

Decided to go with M/S Katrin based on review. Wasn't disappointed. Crew was friendly but not overbearing. I think offered a couple of points here and there but mostly stayed out of the way of people's watching experience. The ocean was a bit wavy so...More

Our two hour boat trip got off to a great start when we saw a flying fish! It was fantastic to see it skimming the water for what looked like 150 – 200 feet. In fact, according to David Attenborough, flying fish can stay airborne...More

We chose this trip for its simplicity. No fuss, no swimming, no food just watching the dolphins. The crew were very helpful. We saw lots of dolphins. Great value for money.

A wonderful afternoon boat trip along the coast to a point off Masca Bay where we found a pod of dolphins who played with the boat for ages. The crew were friendly, and very respectful of the creatures, who at times swam under the prow...More
