We had a really successfull and funny fishing trip with our Guide. First, the current made it a bit difficult for us to fish on the bottom so we decided to do one hour offshore trolling before we again moved on to bottom fishing. The guide explained the different fishing techniques very well and we managed to catch five fish from three different fish varieties. All in all a memorable fishing trip. I would highly recommend this Activity. Greetings from Germany

We had great hours on board a really big sailing ship. A very nice, attentive skipper took us to the best places. It was really unforgettable to see so many whales swim by so close to the boat. A great experience for the whole family. The food and drinks were also very good. Overall, very recommendable! We'll be back ... Thank you very much and see you soon ... Susanne with family

Wonderful excursion! Easy to access, professional crew and passionate about the marine world. We saw dolphins and whales, the underwater vision allows a memorable show with the whales!

Really enjoyed the trip! Friendly staff on board, they are very knowledgeable and well organized! 4.5hrs was a delight and the time flew! Money well spent!

Fantastic trip so amazing to see the whales but host respectful of the wildlife
