Excellent Excellent Excellent well worth doing this is our third time and certainly won't be our last loved every second
Fabulous trip. Fabio was very knowledgeable about the dolphins & whales. We saw dolphins & the wow factor of a humpback whale and her baby. Just amazing & well worth doing.
AMAZING TRIP !!
We chose Magic Torphins because their RIB looked the best in the harbour and the ladies in the kiosk spoke perfect English and were very polite and knowledgeable about the trip and obviously very caring about the environment and the welfare of dolphin and whales which we would hopefully see was their no 1 priority. We were not disappointed. We saw 3 sperm whales, 2 pods of pilot whales including young and some bottle nosed dolphins with babies.
The sea was a bit choppy but we were given ponchos incase it got too wet but we didn't need them because the driver was brilliant and we always felt safe on the boat.
Sarah the marine biologist spoke perfect English and had so much information about the creatures, she was great. At one time we thought she would explode with excitement when she spotted the sperm whales.
We are now booking the catermaran boat for another trip , it was sooooo good.
Sperm whales and pilot whales
We chose this company out of several that run these tours.they were a good price and the boat looked good (we have our own rib at home and spend a kit of time on and under the water).
The staff were friendly and efficient. Guilermo (our skipper) managed to keep the ride comfortable despite some residual swell from the recent storms.
There are spotters on the shore who managed yo find a family group of pilot whales and a second, accompanied by bottlenose dolphins. Then we were taken to hook up with a family if sperm whales. They hung around for a while, quite close to the boat, before heading down to feed. Great view of the tail flukes as they dove down.
Sara, our on board marine biologist gave us an excellent narration of what we were seeing and made sure we got the best shots and angles with the cameras.
We took the 3pm session. I think we were lucky to see the sperms but Sara said that it is normal to see some wildlife on a trip.
We run 5* experiences at home so we know a good one when we see it. These guys were great and we'd definitely recommend them.
An excellent experience on a rib this morning, very informative crew and they care about the wildlife.
We managed to see two sets of different whales and two different species of dolphins, so much better seeing them in there natural environment.
Thoroughly recommend if you are thinking of doing this trip
