We had a really good experience, the guide is knowledgeable about the place and where the dolphins & whales can be seen, also offered us some fruits/snack & drink. We saw some dolphins and a pilot whale from very close. we were only 9 of us on the boat (small group) Would definitely recommend this tour.

The boat captain Victor was fantastic. He was very helpful and gave us a lot of tips about best things to try on Tenerife. He is very knowledgeable about the sea animals and had no trouble spotting them on the endless ocean. The boat was beautiful as well, but the boat captain definitely made the whole experience amazing.

Everything has been great. A nice experience. Punctual departure, kindness of the captain, good service, the impeccable boat, and on top of that we had the luck (or perhaps the captain's expertise to take us to the right place ??) to see pilot whales right next to the boat, even passing underneath, and see dolphins at 10 meters. Recommended 100%
