Beautiful Day Out Dolphin Tour

 

I was very impressed with Simon and his professional and courteous crew. You do have to hold onto your hat while the boat cruises through the ocean.
We snorkelled and saw about a dozen dolphins resting on the ocean floor, 60 feet below us. We also observed other dolphins jumping. It's rather futile to swim after these gorgeous mammals, but it was fun, and my kids had a blast. Even hubby who hates deep water didn't mind the swimming. Dolphins are wild animals, don't expect them to give you a ride.
Initially I gawked at the price (then converted it to Canadian dollars which is even higher) but the trip was well worth the money. Not only did we snorkel with dolphins, we were also taken to a beautiful reef for snorkelling. I never felt rushed and enjoyed observing the fish. The snacks and drinks were plentiful and my kids had a great time gorging on all the junk food I don't buy. Many of the snacks were kosher too, which I appreciated even though that was probably unintentional. There was also delicious fruit to munch on.
On our way back, we were also taken to two other spots for a quick history lesson and some bird watching. Two of my kids even had a chance to steer the boat which they thought was very cool. I didn't want to rain on their parade and tell them the boat was on autopilot. To make the morning even better, no one was seasick.
If I'm ever in that part of the world again, I would definitely go again with this company.
They are definitely worth the money.

Great dolphin and reef snorkeling adventure

Staff was fantastic and accommodated us on very short notice. The trip was great. We saw many dolphins and enjoyed snorkeling near the reef. Nice lunch spread also with plenty of snacks and drinks. Boat was very impressive and modern. I would recommend this company to anyone. The staff was very attentive and friendly.
