I had arranged a short holiday for my sister’s 18th birthday and decided to celebrate the special occasion by taking a boat trip – what a mistake! Having been promised an “amazing” experience – sun, snorkelling, sangria,” fantastic” lunch, "guaranteed" dolphins, we skipped down to the marina with great anticipation. However my anticipation soon turned to apprehension after being kept... More

Despite the slight seasickness, this trip was great we saw quite a few dolphins and whales. The cliffs were also awe-inspiring, but be warned, the sea is freezing! The only complaint I can make is that we are vegetarian and there was no food offered for us and those like us - but they did attempt to fix this very... More

We went on the 5h trip today. The boat was great and the staff very helpful and friendly. We saw lots of pilot whales some with babies, which came very close to the boat. A good level of information was given by the guide on the boat. We also saw some bottle-nosed dolphins which also came very close to the... More

Visited in March 2015. My advice would be to shop around as tickets are not a standard price. We bought tickets at Adeje at a whopping €45 each. I was pleased and initially thought it was a bargain, as I'd paid €64 each on Lanzarote for a "similar" trip. Turns out you can buy this 5 hour trip for €30... More

This boat takes about 50 people. It was only half full on our trip which was good. Plenty of room. We did the 5 hour trip out to see the whales then on to Los Gigantes where we saw dolphins and there was chance for a short swim. The captain was very good at keeping alongside the whales and dolphins... More

Took a Royal Delphin catamaran trip to see the dolphins and whales off Costa Adeji. Well looked after by the crew. Informative snippets as we travelled. Free drink & sandwiches. Stopped for snorkelling for those who wanted to. Mount Teide visible. Only 40 passengers, making it much more enjoyable. A beautiful trip. Highly recommended,

And the food... Pppfft if you could call it food I wouldn't even feed it to my dog!! It was dry rice and... More

When we bought our tickets we clearly asked "how likely are we to actually see the whales and dolphins" our response was "every time". Straight away we questioned this. How could he guarantee that we would see the whales and dolphins. We then asked "will we be cold?" It was about 21 degrees that day so we knew it would... More
