We were incredibly lucky to spot a school of Dolphins after lunch - the trip was extended so we could head the boat out and we spent an unforgettable time with dolphins swimming around and with the boat - magical.
We cruised along the coast getting close in to the shore, and after a while we came across a pod of dolphins, which was a real bonus.

It was absolutely amazing to see the caves and coastline which were stunning and being able to see the bottlenose dolphins in the ocean rather than any zoo was an experience we will treasure forever.
The humour and professionalism of the captain and his team made for a most enjoyable afternoon and seeing dolphins swimming in their own natural environment was both emotional and breathtaking.
