Reviews for Dolphin conservation in Greece


review 13 Aug 2018

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

Being on the boat for many hours and taking the time to wait for diving dolphins and monk seals to (re)appear together with experts and other nature loving persons and no one ever gets impatient or bored! Sharing time, home and meals with an international group

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Everything is very well explained in the online informations for participants that you should read very carefully before booking. Make sure that you'll "survive" a five or six hours boat trip in the sun with no shelter (and no toilet...) And be aware that it is not a touristical dolphin watching trip. You don't necessarely go to the places where the most dolphins are expected but to the sectors that are on the schedule . Watching out for the animals and reporting is quite demanding (but I enjoyed it very much). Your help in the boarding house is expected as well as the daily work at the computer to identify the dolphins which was very interesting, but sometimes I would have prefered to have more spare time instead...

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

We bought all food at local small stores. The dolphin project seems to me to be very serious and helped already to protect the area where the dolphins live. We spent quite al lot of time with the monk seals in order to get informations and photos that could be helpful to demand a restriction for tourist boats around the island where they live and to get money for another research project.

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

I spent a wonderful, extremely interesting, quite exhausting and extraordinary week!
