An unforgettable experience: swimming with wild dolphins in their natural environment. If you don't want to swim with them, you can also observe them from the boat.

The second part of the excursion: whale watching. With the help of a hydrophone, our crew will try to localize them. And once on site, just admire these amazing creatures.

Our family spent the most spectacular early morning on a speedboat with the Dolswim watching whales and dolphins. Julian and Fabio did everything possible to make sure we had a safe and enjoyable trip. At first we went to see whales, the crew kept the needed distance however allowing us to see mom whale with her baby. After we went for the swimming with dolphins, as we are not good swimmers we did not swim but we spent some time enjoyed it nevertheless, especially when you see that the dolphins are so close. After we made a stop to do some snorkelling on the reef to observe the amazing sea life. My daughter did snorkelling the first time and she left a deep impression. Many thanks to Julian and Fabio for this wonderful trip.
