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.

A very friendly and very professional experience, made exciting thanks to the explanations of the crew members throughout the cruise. A special thank you to Line who pampered us with great kindness. Whales and dolphins were there but of course we did not disturb them. a small snack (sandwiches and unlimited drinks) were welcome. Thank you all for this rare moment.

This is so worth doing and one of the best experiences I've had. If you enjoy being out at sea, watching beautiful pilot whales in their natural habitat combined with some nice snacks and drinks, this is for you. I loved it and was back at the harbour the following morning for another trip. Simply delightful and energising and amazing. Loved, loved, loved it!

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

Relaxed friendly boat trip. Saw whales and dolphins. Staff very helpful
