What people are saying about Costa Adeje

I wasn't really looking forward to a boat trip in the Atlantic Ocean, but had just the best trip. We had good weather. The Catamaran was great with more than enough seating. I didn't feel they overcrowded the boat. Staff were amazing and kept us informed. We saw lots of dolphins and a few Pilot Whales, also a Turtle on the way back. The Captain respected the space of the dolphins and whales, we were very lucky they swam right in front of the boat. It was one of the best boat trips I have been on (and I have done many) The boat then went inshore a little and you could swim off the boat if you were brave enough. Snacks were served too which was lovely and the bubbles flowed the whole trip. 100% recommend.

A fabulous 3 hours out on the ocean viewing the whales, Dolphins and Turtles, small amount of people on board making it a very personal experience, excellent compère. Food wine and soft drinks provided…bonus, would highly recommend

We had a blast. people complaining about the food are just too lazy to go outside an explore all the options right opposite Aqualand. The park does what it says on the label… water slide rides. Full review on tripadvisor

The team was very nice and fun. You know that they love there job and know what they are doing. We got lucky and saw alot of animals. I would totally go again.

Everything perfect! Great tour with almost 100% certainty of seeing dolphins and whales up close.
