What people are saying about Tenerife

I loved Naty! She was a blast and super patient. My mom was uncomfortable in the water, but Naty was still kind, funny, and accommodating. No turtles, but beautiful fish, and good quality snorkels and fins. We’ve used public snorkels before that were terrible. These were a refreshing breath of fresh air - literally! A great experience overall.

The activity was awesome We saw turtles, different kind of fishes and a big stingray. The guide was nice and she helped another woman carefully, because she was afraid. After that the woman was less afraid and was able to enjoy on her own. She also took great pictures.

Nice crew, fast boat trip, good support while snorkeling. Saw rays and dolphins on the way back.

Good quick snorkelling trip a few minutes away. No turtles but worth the time out. Thank you

Unfortunately we didn't see any turtles, but the guide tried very hard to find some.
