E-Motion Travel have supported IDW for years and follow our code of conduct. Bettina and Stelios started dolphin watching trips after a visit by Horace Dobbs.
In a report DOLPHINS IN CRETE published by IDW in 1995 Horace wrote: “We went to Crete on a quest to explore the mysterious magic of the dolphin. Only one boat trip was planned. We didn’t really expect to see dolphins - although we hoped might. As soon as we left port the dolphins found us. For over two hours our boat was surrounded by a joyful carnival of dolphins with their babies.”
