    Het was een leuke trip met zeven personen op een kleinere boot met een sterke motor. Niettegenstaande dat er veel deining was heeft Javier voor ons toch de grienden gevonden. We konden ze van heel dicht bij bewonderen. Javier heeft ons nog veel meer verteld over de onderwaterwereld terwijl we een lekker broodje gekregen hebben. Door de deining hebben we geen andere vissen gezien maar we hebben nog een tocht gedaan langs de kliffen van San Juan. Het was een leuke ervaring!

    It was a nice, relaxed and interesting tour with the luck that we saw a lot of pilot whales. We were only 6 guests on the boat, which made the trip very familiar and personal, not as touristy as the big ships. The captain is very nice and explains a lot about the animals that you saw and that live there. You can also take a nice break at sea, not far from a small reef where you can snorkel and swim. Drinks and sandwiches are offered, which consist of regional ingredients. Overall we loved the tour. A little tip: if you want to sit in the front of the boat, you have a great view, but you also get wet quickly. Therefore: Put on your bathing suit beforehand. And the swell is generally strong, so don't have too sensitive a stomach. But that certainly applies to all boat trips here in the region ;-).

    It was amazing, we enjoyed the dolphins and we were lucky enough to see 3 whales. Then a swim in the Calla de Masca, beautiful scenery and crystal clear waters. 100% recommendable!! And what about Javier the captain, friendly, careful, detailed and an expert in the environment and in explaining everything in detail. Something to do if you visit Tenerife.
