Great trip if you literally only just want a couple of hours out on the boat. We booked the Whales and Dolphins trip and also got some great views of Los Cristianos and the surrounding bays with a great back drop of Teide and the mountains behind. We managed to spot several groups of Pilot whales and even came across... More

I booked this excursion online (a couple of days before, when I was reasonably certain of calm weather), thus securing a discount. It was necessary only to show the receipt number on my mobile phone, when boarding. It was a bit unclear where to go to catch the boat (didn't see any signs anywhere), but there is only one jetty...

We had a great excursion and saw several whales -family groups with several calves -and they kept following the boat for a long time.. The crew was very nice and friendly and seemed very skilled in finding whales -and not loosing them again.. Very relaxing trip and a great experience to see such marvelous creatures so close by.. I rather... More

We had an amazing trip with Mar de Ons. They are based at the harbour in Los Cristianos and without pre booking we managed to get a very good rate. On our trip the boat was half full which made for a more personal trip. The crew were extremely knowledgeable and you really got the feeling that they loved what... More

My partner and I went on the catamaran boat trip for 4 1/2 hours! This cost us 25 Euros each and included in the price was as many drinks as we wanted and our lunch. The boat was clean and spacious and provided the opportunity for a brief swim along the way. Pilot whales, dolphins and a hammer-head shark swam... More

This was an amazing boat trip and great value for money. You get really close to the whales and dolphins, and the boat owners are really caring. They ask everyone to be quiet when they approach the whales, and they cut the engines. They do not feed the whales or dolphins, and they still seam very happy to come right... More

Really glad we chose Mar de ons, instead of some other whale/dolphin excursions. It was a really hot day, and to see the overcrowded little boat next to ours made us sigh with relief. The boat has plenty of room on the various decks, and also an air-conditioned indoor bar area. We chose the 2 hour excursion, and we were... More
