It was an amazing, relaxing day. Butler is great, full of stories and a love of nature + animals. We had a beautiful swim with the dolphins.

Unfortantely the weather wasen't the best so we didn't see a lot of dolphins but we got a free trip another time. The service was good. Butler told us everything we wanted to know about the marine life, laws and rules. We got to borrow a wetsuit and got a free hot drink.

A great day out on the water. Very personal, friendly service. Butler is a real character and very entertaining. Great boat with lots of charm. A very natural experience. The swim bar was great for seeing the dolphins and the water wasn't too cold!
