What people are saying about Puerto del Carmen

Absolutely amazing experience on board a catamaran with a superb crew who can not do enough for you. The mojitos were lovely with beautiful fresh mint and lemon too. We were so privileged to have a pod of dolphins swim in front of us when we started the journey back to shore. Life-changing experience!

The cruise is amazing if the weather is sunny, we had cloudy skies, so we haven't seen the sunset and we couldn't find any dolphins either. Also, my advice is to wear warm clothes if you are going in autumn, spring or winter months. The host is such a nice lady! Overall, I would recommend this cruise.

Amazing Experience, would recommend to all. We had just myself and my partner in the group, and it was amazing learning so much from our guide.

after an exciting trip and I no longer have faith in seeing dolphins, the guide let out a cry. Yes, there they were. Beautiful to see.

Great diving point and professional staff, also friendly. Top experience
