Unbelievable day! These guys really know what they’re doing. Have seen dolphins before, but this was the largest pod I’ve ever encountered (approx 100). We were surrounded! The kids (and us) will never forget this experience. We also saw a seal and a flying fish, just amazing. Took the kids for a kayak, a swim and also tried paddle boarding for the first time - 10/10 day. Thank you so much! Will definitely be back.

Was an amazing day out on the ocean. The team were absolutely brilliant and went the extra mile for our tour group finding us seals, a huge pod of dolphins and then killer whales to end the day. Would recommend this trip to anyone.
