With a group of 12 friends we had 2 boats of 6. Unanimous about this experience: fabulous!!! The guides, the trip with the boat, the shipwreck, the sealife, and of course swimming with the wild dolphins. We’ll never forget this.

Thank you for your question. For the sake of a more meaningful experience, we use 6-passenger boats. Should your party be of more than 6, we will send up to 5 boats out side by side.
