Great experience!

We booked the two hour tour and were not disappointed! We were only 4 participants and had a private boat tour, which was very pleasant. Not only did we enjoy the beauty of the whales and dolphins, but we were allowed to swim in the middle of the Atlantic (though it was not included in the 2 hour option)! The crew was incredibly friendly, entertaining and dedicated. Thank you for this great experience!

Großartiges Erlebnis!

Wir haben die zweistündige Tour gebucht und wurden nicht enttäuscht! Wir waren insgesamt nur 4 Teilnehmer und hatten quasi eine private Bootstour, was sehr angenehm war. Wir haben nicht nur die Schönheit der Wale und Delphine genießen können, sondern wir durften (obwohl es bei der 2-stündigen Option nicht inbegriffen war) mitten im Atlantik schwimmen! Die Crew war unglaublich freundlich, unterhaltsam und engagiert. Vielen Dank für diese tolle Erfahrung!

Great boat trip

We went on the two hour trip with two young kids. The boat was nice and the kids loved it. Saw some whales. They could not pick us up from the hotel though so had to make our own way there.

Good choice

We were looking for a boat ride where our grandfather could also go in a wheelchair. They recommended this and yes, it was a very good choice because they helped him up and down. Dentrod the boat also had mobility in a wheelchair. Thanks for the kindness, especially Antonio (I think).

Buena elección

Estábamos buscando un paseo en barco donde también pudiera ir nuestro abuelo en silla de ruedas. Nos recomendaron esta y si, fue una muy buena eleccion porque le ayudaron a subir y a bajar. Dentrod el barco tambien hubo movilidad en silla de ruedas. Gracias por la amabilidad, especialmente a Antonio (creo).

Great with kids

We looked for a trip for the whole family and decided on this pirate ship. The children made big eyes at the boat and the dolphins and whales also made big eyes. A great alternative to the pool and beach.

Toll mit Kindern

Wir haben nach einem Ausflug für die ganze Familie gesucht und uns für dieses Piratenschiff entschieden. Die Kinder haben bei dem Boot ganz große Augen gemacht und auch die Delfine und Wale haben für große Augen gesorgt. Eine tolle Alternative zu Pool und Strand.

The boat is a sight for sore eyes

The children were so happy on the pirate boat trip, and it was really nice. The boat looks great, my two pirates were thrilled. We have some dolphins and whales seen during the trip, really nice to see the animals even in the wild. Can recommend the trip highly for families, the pirates give thumbs up!

Das Boot ist eine Augenweide

Die Kinder haben sich riesig auf den Piratenbootsausflug gefreut, und es war wirklich schön. Das Boot sieht einfach toll aus, meine zwei Piraten waren hellauf begeistert. Wir haben während der Fahrt einige Delfine und Wale gesehen, wirklich schön die Tiere mal in der freien Wildbahn zu erleben. Kann den Ausflug sehr für Familien empfehlen, die Piraten geben Daumen hoch!
