Every morning the local tour provider decides what will be the best time to go dolphin and whale watching according to the sea conditions of that day. That’s why we kindly ask you to call the local tour provider in the morning on the day of the activity to confirm the exact time. It is possible to call them from 8:00am or you can send them an email, but it is very important to confirm the exact time on the day of the activity.
