We enjoyed!! Very nice and relaxing, and they really try to see dolphins and whales! We did see dolphins!!!
Lovely boat tour

Lovely tour. We were lucky enough to see some dolphins close to the ship. The best part was definitely jumping off the boat and having a swim. I was quite nervous but it was such a good experience. Crew were nice and very supportive of people who were unsure about jumping in. Boat wasnt overcrowded, and the madeira cake and wine was a lovely touch.
Great experience!

Great experience! We were checking out the different dolphin and whale watching tours and this one definitely stood out! It's great to sail out on this iconic replica of Christoffer Columbus' ship, see some dolphins (we saw a dozen) and have a swim in near the coast further down the island. Great staff too who are very knowledge and friendly too! The Blandly wine and the piece of honey cake is a nice touch to finish the experience. Would definitely recommend!
it goes with engin not sails

All pictures of Santa Maria de Colombo are with sails, but the trip is for Engin and no sails. Very disappointing. Then the experience is no better than any other ferry.
One passenger got seasick and threw up, which can happen to anyone, but the crew took a bucket of seawater and threw it at it. One bucket is not enough to remove; it is only enough to spread over the deck for all passengers to step in revolting.
I was very dissapointed
Politeness costs nothing

I would have given a higher score had the male crew members been a little more communicative and polite. Overall the trip was enjoyable, dolphins were spotted and the journey went well but I feel that there could have been a more detailed explanation of life on board ship during Columbus' time. There was a display of items that may have been used by the crew but little else. On the other hand, the only female crew member was a good communicator showing interest and answering questions. I hope she got a fair share of the tips.
