We had a really good experience, the guide is knowledgeable about the place and where the dolphins & whales can be seen, also offered us some fruits/snack & drink. We saw some dolphins and a pilot whale from very close. we were only 9 of us on the boat (small group) Would definitely recommend this tour.

Lovely boat with a friendly knowledgeable skipper. We saw dolphins and pilot whales, and had the chance to swim off the boat. As one of the cheaper tours I wasn’t sure what the quality would be like, but it was great, and really good value for money.

Very nice tour to discover the coast of the island from the port to Los gigantes and the ocean! Besides the interesting things to see they managed to combine a boat party with cocktails, music and dancing where people of all ages were very amused!

Did the tour on the Shogun for the second time and it probably won't be the last time either. It's just a really nice day trip, with whales, dolphins, music, good humor and a really fun crew.

All well organized. The animators, very good, extensive command of several languages. The captain pending his own, the search for dolphins and whales, which he fulfilled perfectly.
