Unfortunately the sea was pretty rough, but the crew did their best to find some marine life. In the end we spotted some dolphins, but they were pretty far from the boat.
Nice boat trip

We enjoyed our trip with Magic Dolphin, on their catamaran. We went at10 am and the trip lasted about 2.5 hours. We got to see bottlenose dolphins and pilot whales. The crew were friendly and they were respectful to the wildlife. It was good value for money at 25 euros.
It's okay....

This was a lovely boat ride to see the island from a distance. Other than that it wasn't anything to write home about. Staff were fine but it felt like I was on a public ferry without a personal touch or wow factor. It's a nice break from the heat of the island but if you're looking to experience whale/dolphin watching; I'd suggest looking for something smaller and more personable.
Nice to do

Sad enough we haven't seen any dolphin or whale. The trip was nice to do. The crew was friendly and they gave some information about the buildings at the coast. The present they wanted to give at the end of the trip had no sence.
