Being able to appreciate the gracefulness of cetaceans underwater should be regarded as a privilege and a gift from the ocean” Encountering dolphins face to face in their natural habitat, the open ocean, can be an intense experience.
We do not want to deprive ourselves of offering our guests such an encounter, as we know first-hand how amazing and touching it can be. Our goal is to give our guests the opportunity to meet these impressive animals underwater while maintaining a respectful approach towards the cetaceans and other marine life.
The trip takes place using our zodiac, STENELLA
Snorkelers hold on to buoys fixed on a rope and will be slowly pulled by the boat at the waters surface alongside the dolphins. This is a passive encounter that does not involve actively swimming with the animals.
The targeted species for the experience are the Atlantic spotted dolphins (Stenella frontalis) and the Short-beaked common dolphins (Delphinus delphis)
We take a maximum of 8 snorkelers per trip. There may be 4 additional persons accompanying the snorkelers on board. You will have a captain on board and a guide with you in the water attending to your needs.
Guests on board should be equipped with a mask & snorkel, designated aquatic thermal wear, a towel, warm clothes and a bottle of water.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE ONBOARDING AN EXPERIENCE
Is it normal for people to get sea sick?
It’s very rare for someone to get sick at one of our experiences. The vast majority of experiences are held only in favourable conditions or we adapt the route. For that reason, the boats sail smoothly causing a great experience for all passengers.If you suffer from chronic motion sickness, in which you get sick even in the car, we recommend that you take a pill 30 minutes before boarding.
What should I bring?
Bring yourself, and some comfortable clothes suitable to the season you are going to be out on the water. Please keep in mind that it is often 10 degrees cooler out on the water, so a jacket or windbreaker is never a bad idea. We also recommend bringing a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses, as well as a swimsuit if appropriate for your charter location.
What happens in the case of bad weather?
If the weather is no go at all and the crew decides it is best not to go out for the sea, we recommend postponing your booking to a later date by coordinating with our team via whatsapp or email or, if not possible, will fully refund you.

What if you cancel the booking?
Although rare, sometimes we may need to cancel a reservation. We understand that this can significantly impact your plans and will never happen without a verifiable justification.
