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!

Had to wait a little longer to be picked up from the hotel, but was informed in good time that there was a 10-minute delay. The trip went flawlessly and we were able to enjoy it quite a bit. During the trip we were provided with drinks, fruit and blankets. It took about 30 minutes to get to the inspection site. There we saw the pilot whales. The tour guides informed us very well about the whales and also the history of Los Gigantes, Mount Teide etc. and were very friendly and took care of all our needs. Then we go snorkeling, although the water was very cold (about 20° in January) we still liked it. After snorkeling there was a hot hose to wash off and a small sandwich and cake (since my girlfriend and another guest happened to be celebrating their birthdays). It then goes to the end and disembarked at port again. We enjoyed ourselves very much and is highly recommended!

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.
