Good but needs a slight improvement.
Lalji_P, Feb 2022
Overall a great experience and even managed to see a family of humpback whales. Just one downside which was that because it was so busy it became a bit manic trying to find the guide for the return to the boat at Bacardi Island. He was waiting on the boat but we didn't know which boat was ours so couldn't see him. He needs to collect people together at a meeting point on the Island.

Thank you for your feedback Laji! Good to hear that you had a great experience overall. I will take care of the issue regarding of returning to the boat on Bacardi Island.

Zuverlässig, freundlich und witzige Leute. Würde ich jederzeit weiterempfehlen. Ausflug garantiert fast eine Sichtung von Walen.
