What people are saying about Costa del Sol

Tariq and Jumanje were excellent. They looked after us all so well and wanted to make sure we all had an amazing experience. Nothing was too much trouble. We were able to swim in the sea, and then we sailed off and saw dolphins , we were so lucky and it was all down to Tariq and Jumanje, trying their best to sight them. It made our boat trip so memorable. Thank you both!

Friendly staff and yacht crew. Good range of free drinks and snacks. Unfortunately the dolphins didn't want to play, but they are wild after all, not performing dolphins ! Thoroughly enjoyed it, thank you.

We saw so many dolphins on the 10am boat trip. The boat was super comfortable and lovely staff.
