The boat was full but not too crowded, there were couple of empty seats and we had space to be comfortably on the boat.

We stopped 3-4 times and saw pilot whales, dolphins (I think they were bottlenose dolphins but I’m not sure), and also fin whales that are vulnerable. We saw them quite near.

Then we got chicken paella what was OK and about 25-30 minutes was reserved for swimming and sunbathing. Very nice.

The staff was very friendly. Very good 3-hour trip.

We went on the 3 hour boat trip, it was really worth the money. We saw pilot whales, had a paella lunch, loads of drinks (all included in the price). Even got to swim and see some fish!
