What people are saying about Puerto del Carmen

We had a great trip on the jet skis. Tour guide was very good at explaining things, the safety boat was always there if you needed it. We paid €20 and got sent all pictures taken on the trip, they were very good and I would definitely recommend it.

The boat was by no means overcrowded. Super nice trip with good food and drink. Definitely worth trying if you are into boat trips. There is a single stop where there is 1.5 hours for bathing and eating.

It was really good, we enjoyed it very much. The staff we’re amazing, the food was delicious and we really liked being able to swim just off the beaches. We would definitely go again.

What a fantastic trip out! Food was great. Organisers & staff were friendly and organised. Especially Enjoyed the freshly made paella!! ♥️

Picked up promptly...guide was straight to the point..no messing!...jet skis were fantastic. Definitely worth the money.
