BLUE DOLPHIN BOAT EXPERIENCE
Blue Dolphin operate a luxurious 11.6m catamaran for all their tours and cruises. Catamarans provide a stable ride for ultimate comfort, even for those that get sea sick. The vessel has an in-water platform that on occasions can allow guests to enter the water with the whales. Blue Dolphin tours are incredibly whale friendly as they allow the whales to decide whether they come in for a look or not. This means the whales don’t become stressed and stay in control of their interactions. But don’t worry, whales are very inquisitive creatures and often swim up to see what is going on.
