    A magnificent experience with a team of passionate scientists who respect marine fauna. We had an exceptional day which will leave us with unforgettable memories. Thank you for your explanations on board, which enriched us and helped us better understand the dangers threatening the marine world.

    Very nice boat with a top crew. Next time we will try the dolphin trip with this very educational team.

    Excellent experience! Extremely friendly crew, explanations of what we see, general information on the ocean and its protection, and of course the opportunity to see cetaceans ... everything is there! Explanations about dolphins and certain questionable practices (for example, going swimming with dolphins is quite harmful: diseases, less reproduction, etc.) allow us to highlight an important point: choose your provider carefully to do this kind of exit if you want to protect these animals! In this case, this service provider also advances science and is respectful of animals: the photos taken during the outing will be used to analyze the migration of groups of dolphins! A truly exceptional sea trip! Go there with your eyes closed!
