'One of the best sea safaris Had gone for this Whale & Dolphin Safari on 11 Dec with my daughter & 15 months old granddaughter. Ended up seeing about 500 dolphins altogether in six- seven sightings, as well as four whales in three different sightings. The five hour voyage itself was fantastic, with crew member Rob providing an interesting, lively, humorous, yet a very apt commentary... ' Kuldip S, Trip Advisor, December 2013
