We booked this trip through Thomson two years ago so decided to do it again this year! We were not disappointed, everything was amazing start to finish! We were greeted on the boat by the crew and had our photo taken. We decided to sit on the nets as there were a few older couples on the boat so left... More

We were staying in Puerto De La Cruz so were aware it would be a 2 hour coach ride, which was fine. We understand no one can change the weather, but there is no way tge trip shoukd have continued with... More

We went out around 5 miles into the ocean and then followed an elliptical course to look for whales and dolphins . The Captain radio contacted nearby vessels to ask if... More

This was the adults only trip, the crew and food and drink were excellent. Three hour trip. We were privileged to see a pod of Orcas. We purchased a DVD made during the trip for the memories,. Would strongly recommend.

Went on this excursion Freebird Gold, 3 hours. Absolutely amazing, we saw pilot wales and so many dolphins, at least 20, whole families followed along side of us. It was so emotional to see them in their natural habitat. The food was good, drinks flowing and the crew great. Well worth the money and just loved the whole experience

We booked this trip towards the end of our holiday in Tenerife and could not recommend it more! We booked the 3 hour cruise and found that to be the perfect amount of time for us. The crew were friendly and helpful and the lady (Kristina I think) that narrated things on the trip was well versed in various different... More

From the beginning to the end, the staff were very helpful and friendly - making us feel very welcome. All drinks and lunch were complimentary... More
