We took the afternoon tour and had a great experience with this small group sailing adventure to see whales and dolphins. The crew was fantastic and provided a lot of helpful information about the whales and dolphins we encountered. We were lucky enough to encounter a pod of pilot whales than were interested in the boat so they spent time swimming around us. We also were able to spot some dolphins in another area and spent time enjoying watching them. The boat stopped to allow those interested in snorkeling to have some time in the water while others just enjoyed relaxing on the boat and enjoying the incredible views. We were treated to fresh fruit, drinks and delicious sandwiches prior to the end of the experience. The vibe was relaxing and informative. With such a small group (8 passengers) it was nice to interact with the others onboard. I would highly recommend this experience!

Very nice experience in a small group. The guides were super friendly and very skillful, also did they know a lot about the dolphins we spotted and explained us a lot. Also for my children it was a nice experience, as they were allowed to assist the captain on the boat. Also they are very ethical when it comes to not disturbing the animals. I can absolutely recommend booking with this company.

Quick response from the crew when booked . Lift organised from the hotel and returned to hotel also. Small group on the boat 7 adults 2 children. 3 crew who were extremely attentive. Drinks and fruit offered during the trip and sandwiches when we stopped at the cove (and cava too but the choice of drinks was yrs). Saw lots of dolphins and a turtle but sadly the whales were not out this time. The captain David spoke excellent English and answered all our questions about the wildlife and Tenerife also. Gave so much information it was like having a personal tour. All crew spoke good English and several other languages too. We didn’t snorkel- happy to sit in deck and take in the atmosphere— no pressure to get in the sea Such a nice tour and lovely to get out on the sea the wildlife was a bonus. Would definitely recommend.
