“The staff were focussed on helping us get out in the water, seeing as much sea life as possible and getting us back to shore safely. It was our lucky day as we saw what looked like hundreds of dolphins everywhere around us. The staff also pointed out a couple of different types of turtles. It was a wonderful morning and felt very safe.”
