What people are saying about Benalmadena

lovely staff and a wonderful boat. we didn't see any dolphins but the staff tried their best. nothing was too much trouble. they gave us blankets when it got cool and looked after me when I got seasick. the drinks were a good price and we had a very enjoyable boat trip. I think it's worth booking with them if you want a boat trip in general and then if you see dolphins it's a bonus. you have a wonderful trip seeing some gorgeous shorelines so it's well worth doing. plus we got a stamp for a half price trip next time as we didn't see any dolphins. you can also get fairly priced photos/keychains. Highly recommend and than you for our wonderful trip. you won't be disappointed if you book this boat trip.

Booked from the UK before leaving on holiday, however there was a cancellation option which was a bonus. The trip its self was amazing and I was not expecting much. I just wanted to be on a boat. We did see dolphins which is not guaranteed. There is a bar on board which not not expensive considering. Best part for me was jumping in the sea from the back of the boat. If I went back to the location again I would go again. Thank you to all the staff.

This is a really really good trip. The sailors are upbeat friendly and welcoming, they bring fun and are professional too. They go the extra mile to make it adventurous for us passengers, not to be missed !

Really good value. Saw loads of dolphins. Boat crew were really nice and friendly. Thoroughly recommend this trip.
