Nice and clean , seeing the seals and having a photo taken with it was nice , The yellow sub was very disappointing as we only saw about 10 silver fish and couldnt wait to get out to be honest , you see more fish from the shore, don't waste your money, buy some goggles and a snorkel cheaper and...

Paid €30 for a glass bottomed boat trip which lasted 22 minutes. You go into the bottom of the boat with glass windows on either side (but not on the bottom). Saw a few fish and that was it. On leaving we spotted the sea lion. Went to take a photo and was ushered along. Harbour area is v nice... More

Thankyou for your recent review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the experience with our sealions. It is true, specatators are not directly in front of the activity. This is for 2 reasons. The 1st reason is that people directly behind the interaction proves a huge distraction to our animals. When in interaction with the public, we have to... More

Shame on you if you go and see these beautiful wild animals kept in such a small area! I watched these poor sea lions paraded in front of the public and felt awful. Just think about it before you go!!!

We went on the catamaran for the 4 hour outing mid January, the weather was great and the crew were excellent, this costs €49 each but does provide lunch and unlimited drinks on board it was very enjoyable. We also went jet skiing from here and although I found it very expensive I loved every minute of it

Note: The highlight of the "Glass bottom boat" trip was managing to see the sea lions as they were getting ready to start that activity for the others. We paid 30 euros for 2 people (15 each) to go inside the glass bottom boat for 30 minutes. Staff were friendly and there was plenty of information on what you COULD... More

Thankyou for your recent review of our glass bottom boat excursion. We are sorry that the marine life was not so impressive on the day of your activity. In the bay of Caleta de Fuste we do have shark nets which prevent anything "large" entering the marina, however, fish can come and go and we see many different species throughout... More

We went so that my wife could sit with the sea lions because she was unable to go in the water. After waiting quite a considerable time, I paid 5 Euros for the privilege of using my own camera and for her to sit there. She went in and sat on the bench and had just enough time to take... More

We are sorry to read that you were not impressed with our sealions! For clients who are unable to swim with our animals, we provide the interaction on the bench. The sealion comes out of her pool and sits next to you, so that you can pet her and take some photos. This is done 3 times per day, daily.... More
