STAY AND SNORKEL PACKAGES
PONTA DO OURO, THE POINT OF GOLD
Why book a package?
Our specially created wild dolphin encountour packages offer our guests the comfort of having accommodation and healthy, wholesome meals catered for
As encounters with our dolfriends are completely organic and unscripted, allowing oneself the opportunity of doing a multiple launch package almost certainly guarantees a bout of conscious interaction and an eye to eye encounter with the resident dolphins in the big blue.
Weather is one of the leading contributing factors in having a good encountour. Allowing oneself enough days to work around nasty weather days is important to factor into to dolphin experience.
A group size of 4 peeps is required and most dates are catered for however low season and mid-week tours are best, offering quieter seas and beaches.
Accommodation is in two sleeper cabanas that has a beautifully appointed bedroom, a spacious en-suite bathroom, fully-equipped kitchen and a dining and braai area in front of each unit. Your unit also comes with a hammock, fan, mozzie net, plug points & electric lights.
