We came across the tour quite by accident and it was more than worth it. Our guide Ryn explained a lot about animals and their habitat, showed us a lot in the water (how the animals react when to which movements) and made great pictures. We had bad luck with the weather and the water was very cold despite the wetsuit but everything else was great. PS: the seals stink extremely .. haha

Super Organisation. Es wird auf die Tiere geachtet das sie nicht gestresst sind. Anfassen ist nicht erlaubt was ich super fand! Da ich bei offenen Meer schon mal eine Panikattake hatte wurde auf mich geachtet. Als ich mich erschöpft fühlte bekam ich sofort eine Schwimmhilfe. Ich schwamm damit nur noch ober Wasser ohne zu schnorcheln was für mich komplett ausreichte. Die Robben kommen zum spielen, tauchen auf und unter, es war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis und ich hab mich immer absolut sicher gefühlt!
