Fantastic tour. Small group meant we had really great support from the crew who were very knowledgeable about the area and marine life. The speedboat gave us a thrilling trip out to the caves and then far out to sea where we saw 2 groups of wild, common dolphins which was really exciting. Woukdnt hesitate to recommend. Just one thing to consider, it is quite strenuous when out at sea as it can get quite rough, so you need to be able bodied!

We had a wonderful boat tour around different caves & got the chance to see the dolphins at the beginning of our tour. The guides really did their best for us to see the dolphins as they are not in captivity.

Very nice guides and a very personal tour, no mass tourism clearance. A lot was said about the caves and there were many free bathing beach recommendations. A refreshing excursion, especially on hot days.

Everything spectacular from the guide explaining everything very well, the captain super skillful and confident, the breathtaking landscapes, all the caves have a natural beauty

We saw a ton of dolphins and beautiful caves, and the boat was a lot of fun. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable and made the experience amazing.
