Fantastic! Don’t wear a cap because it won’t stay on for long! We did the 2hr experience and we each had our own jet ski. I’m 56 and I wasn’t judged, didn’t feel intimidated and wasn’t expected to keep up. However, I did keep up haha. Do it! And to top it all we had 3 dolphins swim alongside us for 2 minutes. It was worth every penny! I’ll certainly do it next time we come to Tenerife

Well looked after . 1st time on jet ski and absolutely loved it . Even though it was a bit choppy . Managed to both fall off but the monitor was great and made sure we got back on jet ski ok

It was a unique experience, the crew very attentive to everything. We were able to see a family of pilot whales and learned new things. The exceptional bathroom and the unbeatable views.

Awsome! A lot of fun! Instruction was fast explained and god. Awsome experience would recommend for everyone who loves speed and adrenalin.

Great day, nice crew and willing to have a good day, totally recommended
