Fab trip – got sprayed by the whales!
Booked the Freebird Gold trip with reserved sun beds and it was excellent! Lots of drinks and food included in price and a really spacious catamaran to enjoy. Seeing the school of pilot whales so close up ( sprayed us from their blowholes as they swan under the catamaran nets) was the highlight of my holiday. An experience I will never forget. Can highly recommend this trip.
We went there today 12/817. Well organised, weather glorious and had brilliant views of Pilot Whales and pods of dolphins. Crew of ship were extremely friendly and helpful, Drinks and food were included. Marta was very knowledgeable about the marine wildlife. I would highly recommend this trip.
Just come back from this trip. We did spoil ourselves and paid for VIP. This consisted of our own sunbed, towel, waiter service and best of all being at the front of the Catamaran. So glad we upgraded as we have front row seats of the whales which were so close to us. Staff very friendly and informative , food was nice and drinks were offered numerous times. – highly recommend !!!
Great boat trip
This was one of the best excursions we ever had. We got to see the Dolphins and Pilot Whales, some of which were very close and managed to get some great photo’s!!!
We did opt for the VIP area and were first on the boat. The staff were great, the boat was clean and tidy.
The food was basic, but we were expecting that. We didnt know about the photo’s and video’s that were for sale, but we bought them anyway as the trip was so good.
Highly recommended 🙂
