Mull wildlife holiday in Scotland
Mull is a wonderful island where you will not find a disappointing view. The wildlife trips organized as part of the holiday package were excellent. Each trip was conducted by very professional and knowledgeable experts covering all aspects of the local flora and fauna. (more)David Hayers
Excellent...All accommodation was situated in the best possible place for fantastic views and access to wildlife tours (more)janet kelly

Wildlife holiday in the Isle of Mull, Scotland
Very enjoyable and well organised....The scenery was absolutely stunning even if the weather wasn't great but that's the risk with going to Scotland any time of year. (more)Jennifer Lacey
It was all very enjoyable - the Discover Mull excursion was a particular highlight, when we saw golden eagles flying - among a ton of other wildlife! (more)Louise Keable
From 450 - 555 excluding flights
Whale and dolphin watching in La Gomera
We had three boat trips to see the whales and dolphins. All 3 were great we saw animals every time and different ones each day. The crew were friendly and gave lots of information verbal and written. I was particularly moved by their obvious sensitivity towards the mammals. (more)Linda Hudson
The most memorable part was lots of jumping dolphins! I've taken 8 dolphin watching tours in 6 days and managed to see 6 species (Rough-toothed dolphin, Atlantic spotted dolphin, Short-finned pilot whales, Bottlenose dolphin, Common dolphin and Cuvier's beaked whale!!!) (more)Patty Tse
Being out on the boat and experiencing the wonders of dolphins and whales in their own habitat. We were so close you could almost touch them!...The holiday was one of the best we have ever experienced, we would highly recommend it. (more)Jane Ditchburn
From 595 excluding flights
Cruise and swim with dolphins in Egypt
Memorable parts? Put simply, this is probably one of the best holidays I've ever been on and this is largely down to the exceptional customer care that this company offers both in the UK and in Egypt. The highlight of course was swimming with wild dolphins out in a protected reef in the middle of beautiful clear blue sea. Beyond that though the location, the food, the helpfulness of the staff, the accommodation and the attention to detail were all excellent. 2. What tips would you give... (more)Candida Perkis

Whale & dolphin research in Ligurian Sea, Italy
It was definitely one of my best two trips ever. Loved the people in the group, the activities, the animals and the overall experience. I would definitely recommend it. (more)Tania Fernandez
Excellent - fun, friendly and highly knowledgeable team made it a very worthwhile experience. (more)Rebecca Pagnucco
Excellent...Don't hesitate but keep in mind it is not a cruise but you are there to help. Fun but can be tiring. Worth it (more)maryse schild
From 866 - 886 excluding flights
Whale & dolphin conservation in the Hebrides
One of the best travelling experiences I have ever had. Thanks to the competence of the staff, the kindness of the other participants and the wonderful beauty of the Hebrides isles. (more)Federico Spinucci
There was so much crammed into this voyage that it would be hard to pick out the most memorable. Breathtaking views and scenery, exhilarating sightings, knowledgeable crew, gourmet cooking. (more)Petrina Hines
Most memorable? Im not sure if it was the sight of a pod of dolphin surging towards the boat and bow-riding or the excitement and happiness of my fellow volunteers and the crew. (more)Hilary Morley
From 950 - 1500 excluding flights
Swimming with wild dolphins in the Azores
Seeing whales and dolphins on each of our four trips out to sea. The sightings were awesome. A great holiday, both for the whale and dolphin encounters and beautiful scenery inland too. (more)Rosie Sutcliffe
We loved it so much we are going to do it again. It's a week of being somewhere completely amazing. peaceful and different - underwater - and everyone and everything helped us to concentrate on that and have a terrific time. (more)Lynda Bailey
Just four words, really: out of this world. Oh - and unforgettable....The first time the dolphins came close to us in the water: being able to hear the clicks and squeaks as they sussed us out, seeing the bubbles they blew at us and watching them look us in the eye as they shimmied past. (more)Lisa Newman
From 580 excluding flights
Swim with dolphins in Egypt
A fantastic way to spend xmas and new year. Would definitely recommend this, taking into account all previous comments. (more)Joanne Horton
I would recommend this experience and holiday to anyone who loves dolphins and wants to swim with them and see them in the wild. If you are quiet and calm and just wait they will swim to you and with you and you can pretend just for a short time that you are part of their underwater world. (more)Emma Ghafur
One of the very best holidays I have ever had. Swimming with the dolphins was certainly the most memorable part of the holiday. Their eye contact and way of playing was just extraordinary, something will remain with me forever. (more)Maurizio Ferrari
From 474 excluding flights
Azores whale and dolphin watching holiday
Memorable parts? Seeing the whales and dolphins, of course! I also really loved the hot springs. And the botanical gardens.....and the tea plantation.......and the food and the great group and Nunu- what an incredibly knowledgeable guide! Tips? Some people were seasick. I took a Kwell, used travel bands and chewed ginger gum and I was fine. I might have been fine without all that - I'll never know. Take clothes for all weathers. Local benefits? Yes, tourism is a very... (more)Jo Fallon
