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!

Amazing experience, we were so lucky to see the dolphins, they swam by the side of us a few times, it’s not guaranteed but I would recommend doing the early one as not many boats out at that time and the dolphins probably prefer that lol Lovely crew on board, would highly recommend

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.

It was an incredible experience. I have seen flamenco before but this was amazing. Would highly recommend anyone go and see this fabulous show.

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