An absolutely incredible experience with the team, I was apprehensive at first as my swimming skills are not that great, but they helped me through the whole adventure and I will definitely do something else when I back here for my next trip. Thanks a million

Incredible experience, we managed to swim with dolphins 5 times. The tour group knew how to find the dolphins and get us into the water to maximise the experience. My partner bruised her body trying to climb back into the boat and they also took the time to treat the bruise upon our return to the mainland.
