An amazing trip and highly recommended. You cannot leave Tenerife without doing this activity. The boat is very comfortable and both the captain and the companion are wonderful, they let you take photos with the helm and they explain everything you see. We saw a turtle and many whales. The walk is very pleasant and recommended. The activity lasts just the time you need for the sighting, you can move around the whole ship to see the whales, and one thing that is greatly appreciated is that the tour includes drinks and soft drinks. We 100% recommend the company for its way of managing the activity, making it so enjoyable and running the boat so well because you don't get dizzy at all

The catamaran tour was very nice. We saw a lot of pilot whales, dolphins and also a large turtle. Free drinks and free snacks were included. The boat offers plenty of seating. It is therefore also suitable for older passengers. The guide gave additional information about the animals in English and Spanish. Overall we were very satisfied and can recommend this tour.

Great tour! We saw a turtle and a big family of pilot whales. It was a wonderful sight. We got pretty close to the pilot whales, one could hear them breath! Daniel and Noel are great guides, they told us interesting facts about the pilot whales and the island. We got unlimited free drinks on the boat along with tasty sandwiches! We stopped for a swim near the bay for about 20 minutes. This tour is totally worth it and I highly recommend it.
