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,

What a complete waste of money!!!! We paid €80 for 2 of us for a 3 hour boat trip! It was an absolute waste of money! The free bar consisted of cheap beer, rubbish sangria, and squash!! 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

This trip lasted for (I think) three hours. The food wasn't great, and if you have dietary requirements you need to mention that to them in advance otherwise they won't have an option other than paella. We didn't go for the food though, we went to see wildlife, and we did! We saw bottlenosed dolphins and pilot whales up close,... More

We went on this trip on a catamaran along the coast up to Los Gigantes. All the drinks and lunch was included for the 5 hours we were on there. We were also whale watching and saw loads of pilot whales with their babies and dolphins with babies too. We saw some rare dolphins which go from Africa to America... More

Seen everything advertised great trip although the food left a bit to be desired (tasteless sandwiches ) apparently this vessel is owned by the owners of Laguna I & 2 apartments staff were great although watch you don't get stung for the videos of your trip !!!

An amazing trip. We were not long out of the harbour when we saw dolphins and whales, then shortly after 2 pilot whales appeared and ended up swimming below us on the netting at the front of the catamaran, a magic moment! It was a 3 hour trip which just flew past. We stopped off near a cove and some... More

We booked a 5 hour boat trip in an afternoon with whale watching and trip to Los Gigantes. The boat is nice and big with a fair sundeck to rest as well as benches in the shade. Nice crew, informative in several languages! Put in your best make-up and be prepared to first get some photos taken and to be... More
