The trip was great and a lot of fun. The guides try to find the best spots for seeing the dolphins and spread a good atmosphere. Even if you don't see any dolphins or whales one day, the boat ride is worth the trip. There is a very nice view of the island from the sea and it was fun to drive fast on the water. At the end we also saw some dolphins. Would I book again! The transport went smoothly.

I was very happy with the tour. Everything went well with the process and the transfer. We didn't see any dolphins or whales. I personally didn't think it was bad. The view was beautiful, there were flying fish and a fast exhilarating speed boat ride.

We loved every minute of our experience getting picked up and dropped off at our hotel took away a lot of stress for us. The staff are soo friendly and fun. Being out on the water is just the best feeling in the world especially in fuertaventura.

We were lucky enough to see a whole swarm. Some dolphins even jumped several meters out of the water. It doesn't get any better!

Fantastic, friendly coach, nice group! Would do it again!
