Customer Reviews

We had a great time and a fantastic experience - very professional and very safe- would highly recommend even if you are a bit dubious as i was !! - John


I really loved my experience with Pro drive. We was a small group of 3 swimming with seals, so i didnt feel in a big touristic activity with so many people that could stress the seals. It was really fun to swim with them, they looks like they wanted to play with us, we was all enjoying. One of my best activity. It was short unfortunatly, but probably better for the seals, but i would prefer to be less rush to leave and have more time on the boat to take pictures and see them interact from an other angle. - Veronique


My daughters enjoyed the service. Furthermore they were able to see whales and dolphins which was not initially the plan. Wonderful experience - Wynne


Great experience. Great team - Stephan


Lovely experience, ridiculous, playful, ocean dogs - Conley
