very friendly staff on this boat especially juan. saw lots of dolphins and managed to get quite close, a very enjoyable day out, maybe a little over priced at 35 euros as I remember paying much less in Tenerife.

After a hot coach trip to the harbour we finally boarded the catamaran. I was alittle apprehensive at first as I'd never been out on a boat and have always been scared of trips on the sea. Drinks kept being served to us as we sat and enjoyed the view on top deck. Lots of people and lots of fun.... More

After spending a couple hours out to sea we did find a group of beautiful dolphins however blaring out loud music on the boat would scare them away. We spent 50 euros each on this boat trip which included the travel to Puerto Rico, food and drink, however all they had to offer was a plate of rice, bread and... More

I booked the trip online before we went over and on the application it asked for the name and address of hotel so I assumed as it says on the website that they pick you up from your hotel. This didn't happen as we waited outside our hotel. That night I emailed the company explaining my side and they had... More

it was 49euro and we saw nothing major, spent a long time seaching, for any sea creatures to only discover a few, not worth the expence but im sure not everyones experience will be like this, several people were being sick also, so wasnt the best,

Great to see dolphins in their natural habitat though they took some time to find. The motion of the catamaran may not suit the more sensitive stomach. Ride out was fine but ride back was more than a little damp, and take plenty of suntan cream.

Large catamaran with plenty of rooms to lounge to and from the dolphin feeding areas. Free soft drink with trip, but beer available at extra cost. The usual photo was taken at the start which was €7 per couple, some people bought it, we didn't.
