What people are saying about Gran Canaria
A very enjoyable experience, the staff and crew were fantastic, we saw flying fish, dolphins and a whale whilst out on the water, although it took a little time to find them, the crew worked very hard to find them, Highly recommended. The boat is wheelchair accessible, but not for the faint hearted, they have to lift the chair onto the gang-plank which is just wide enough to navigate across, then lift you onto the boat, once on the boat things do improve. There is a ramped entrance into the cabin area, but no designated slot for a wheelchair, but they do accomodate and make the whole experience very pleasant. If you are able to walk a little then this trip is accessible, if not then I would suggest going to Puerto Rico port and checking the access out before booking. I turned up in my compact motorised wheelchair, which is rather heavy and they did manage to get me safely onto the boat, they went above and beyond, but it was a little nerve wraking.
This was my first visit to Gran Canaria, for number of reasons I decided to stay in the north (Las Palmas) and bought 2 tours (+1 more based on my satisfaction) around the island to get better idea of different regions and places of importance. All of the tours were amazing: small groups, the routes were planned with great detail and knowledge of the island, they well-balanced nature, towns/villages and museums (!); stops to enjoy sights, have coffee or lunch were adequate; and equally important: the guides were fantastic! I have trully enjoyed their talking on all kind of topics related to local history, fauna, flora, geology, archeology, customs, legends, social specifics related to current life and the like. Excellent.
The excursion that was provided by Five Star Boats was amazing. Staff were super friendly and accomadting. However there is a communication problem on the website, i think you need to update the itinary as we paid for the VIP package and due to COVID the boat weren't able to provide towels but obviously its advertised on the website. A few other things that were avertised that didn't happen were the snorking and food was provided but on the website also advertised as a buffet. I understand all the changes were made due to COVID however I think you should make the customers aware of this before they buy without getting the full package. Otherall the excusion was throughly enjoyable and relaxing and was amazing regards.
Really good tour: very lively and filled with lots of interesting facts and stories. And the views! Omg, the views are stunning. We've had a lot of stops for pictures - which was really great. I felt like we were a bunch of friends travelling rather than a tour group. The guide, Francisco, was really friendly and very knowledgeable. If you want to see the north and central part of the island then this hassle free experience is the best for it. Highly recommend.
A relly enjoyable excursion! Marta and Ruben are incredible guides who love what they do. Ruben provided a lot of interesting info about the island and the local fauna both in English and Spanish. The snorkeling part was extremely fun. We had the beach to ourselves and could swim and snorkel as long as we liked! On our way back to the port we had a bite to eat on the boat. Would deffenitely recommend it!
