We went on this excursion on the 26th April. All the team aboard the speedboat were kind, curteous and friendly, offering us jackets when cold and shared their knowledge about the wildlife in the Atlantic. Only dissappointing thing was we were promised by the guy we booked the excursion with, that we would be able to go for a swim/snorkel but did not. Suppose that may not be Dream Waves fault, however a bit misleading as I wanted to do that. However, it was a nice trip across the Atlantic and the Benigal caves were definitely a sight to see!

We went on the yellow boat, sea was very choppy but the captain was very skilled, managed to get very close without any danger, unfortunately did not see any dolphins but we wanted to see the coast more anyway. Only thing that let it down was we boarded 15 minutes late as all the staff were just chatting.

I'm not sure if this is the trip we went on, it was a boat for 12 people dolphin watching and trip to the caves. we were warned the sea was a little choppy and could go back if it did not suit, but I don't think anyone was prepared for how bad it was. It was so bad every time the boat went down it was like hitting concrete this continued the whole trip. A few miles out a young mum and her children asked to go back the kids were terrified and had to be held down in their seats. They did turn back and let them off and I wished I had got off with them but I stayed on for my daughter who wanted to see dolphins which we did not see and there was no chance of seeing them as it was the wrong time of year. It was also to rough to go into the caves so all a bit of a waist of time and about £80 for both of us. Just to make the trip more miserable a poor young French girl in front of me threw up the whole way, which dripped out of the back of her seat on to my feet. never been so glad to get back on dry land.
Lesson learned don't go out there in April, I'm sure it's a very pleasant trip in the summer months the crew were all very nice but should never have gone out in those conditions.
