Good catamaran ride to see many pilot whales up close.
Good catamaran ride to see many pilot whales up close. Nice catamaran and staff, food and drink. Too rough to dock by beach, but swimming allowed off boat. Fun time!

Took a coach to the south coast. We got on a sailing type catamaran and headed out in fairly rough seas to look for Whales and Dolphins. Sadly the Whales didn't appear, the sea was a little too rough for them and they stayed down out of sight. Saw the Dolphins and a few sea turtles too. Nice boat. Food supplied too and despite the rough seas but sunny weather no one was sick and we really enjoyed the trip. Bet its nice in the summer but probably busier too. Read Less

Very expensive - 90 Euros each for three of us - but we thought we'd enjoy this one. We asked if their was swimming off the boat (we'd read that on another review) and were assured "NO it's too cold" of course, there was swimming and all the folks from the other ships knew about it so they got to swim and we sat for 45 minutes and watched them. We did see a small pod of whales from a distance and we were lucky to hit a large group of dolphins playing and coming right up to the ship. That was very cool. When you get on the catamaran you see comfy seats but they charge 5 euro more per person to sit there so you have to sit on benches if you are not willing to pay the extra. It was fine but not worth the money we paid. Read Less
