Friendly, helpful and welcoming people throughout! Dolphin Swimming.

Learn snorkelling before hand - we had a much nicer experience compared to other travelers who were not familiar with snorkelling yet.

I hope it benefited local people. Not sure about environmental impact or conversation.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Great family vacation!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

A group of 7 sperm whales diving one after the other

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

If going on a whale watching trip in the morning, you need to get a boarding ticket for the boat you will be on. Try and get to the office early, have your name printed on something and be patient ??. There will be about 100 other people of several nationalities. all trying to get sorted

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We stayed at a family run hostel and ate out at local restaurants, so yes to the first. The care for the cetaceans shown by Futurismo to support conservation would meet the third point

Dear Mike Thanks for your review and so glad you had such a wonderful vacation. Sorry you had a bit of a wait on the first day, it was the busiest time of the year, so unusual. We do recommend our pre booked guests visit the office before the busy time to avoid waiting and a fast track system for our guests also tends to speed things up.
