Brilliant morning. Dolphins everywhere. Saw a huge pod working together to herd sardines to surface with gannets also dive-bombing to feed. Magical. The RIB ride is fun as well. The skipper and guide were excellent and very informative. Thanks both.

What a wonderful experience. We left the marina at 9am but totally worth the early start. Within 15 minutes we were lucky enough to spot the dolphins, of which there were many. Swimming alongside our boat, they were spectacular. The boat was brilliant fun and...More
