We chose to swim with the sea lions in the oceanarium, as we've done the submarine trips before at other Canary islands, it was just amazing. Euro30 per person, which commenced with a quick talk on what to expect, and getting wet suits, then into the sea, where the instructor took us through various fun activities with Debbie, including kissing...

Didn't mind the price as its nice to try something new, fun to see the fish at the start. Shame about the sea lions trainer being away.

Really wonderful and friendly staff. We didn't see much on a boat ride but it was still pretty cool to be in a glass bottom boat! Meeting Polly Parrot and getting a kiss from the sea lion is something my daughter will never forget.

The gang there seemed to love all things fish. Just wanted the boat to go on and on, back on shore the sea lion was amazing

The trip takes you around the bay in a glass walled cabin so you can see clearly a range of fishes - we saw 6 or 7 varieties. However it only lasts 15 or so minutes and this makes it rather pricey for what you get.

When we went in it was cramped, sweaty and choppy as hell. But you get to see fish as they follow the boat from the dock as they feed them the whole way round.

Waste of money, seen nothing even my four year old was unimpressed. If you got some goggles, held your breath and ducked your head under the sea water for a look you would get the same experience.

Did not see any special fish they were all the same just following the boat/sub from start to finish. When we got back to the harbour they took a photo with a sea lion giving you a kiss and charged you 6 euro each the trip on the glass bottom boat was 20 euro

Dont waste money doing the sub, you go out about 200 yards and sit in pure discomfort for 20 mins while the same grey fish swim around the windows. The aquarium was a joke with a guide with no interest in the fish pointing at them and saying that one, not important and we used to have this fish but... More
