What people are saying about Costa Adeje

This was an incredible experience. The whole team is so friendly. I had such a patient instructor. I began to almost have a panic attack in the water and the way he calmed me down was absolutely amazing. I was really nervous at the beginning and wanted to pull out, he encouraged me not to and guided me each step of the way, before I realized I was at the bottom of the ocean with the sea creatures. I conquered my fears and had an amazing experience. I am so glad I did this.

Fantastic experience and dolphin interaction was amazing. Slightly over priced but my daughter was over the moon.

Erg mooi! Een wat kleinere groep met veel ruimte om rond te lopen en rond te kijken. Grote aanrader!

Fabulous trip, so relaxing and lucky to see a lovely young family of whales..

excelente...gran equipo...buena atencion y preocupacion
