We chose to go on this one as it seemed the best value for money. I paid €20 for myself and my 4 year old daughter went free. We have been on an excursion like this in a different country and saw no dolphins so was quite sceptical. When we arrived it was a very friendly and lovely, family orientated... More

As we were staying in Puerto de Santiago we were often in Los Gigantes and came arross lots of signs and sales people offering boat trips into the bay area for whale and dolphin spotting excursions. We decided to wait until the last day of our holiday to go on the trip and wish we had booked for longer than... More

A most likeable and competent crew able to immediately identify the dolphins and a little later a couple of whales. They were able to be followed by a group of dolphins jumping around us. Superb! We took the tour with the motorboat, not the the sailboat also because it is comfy and equipped with a white awning protected us from... More

Have been on this trip twice and it is always a fantastic day! The crew are very friendly and welcoming, and full of fun! It's suitable for all, we went first time in 2007 as a couple and again in 2013 with our teenage kids. Crew speak several languages. Such great fun and well worth the cost, which is very... More

Booked the 2hr trip (e20 each.. June 2014)..which for us was just enough. Saw dolphins and minky whales about 15 min out from harbour in their natural environment. Much better than a dolphin type show. Afterwards went to musca bay for the brave enough to go swimming off the boat then back along the giant cliffs home. Overall a good... More

We took 88yr old mother-in-law and the crew couldn't have been nicer. They kept her involved (as with all the other passengers) and us all amused throughout the 3 hour voyage. We saw a large whale and lots of dolphins. With about 80 passengers the crew were kept very busy and everything seemed to run smoothly. This was a great... More

Myself and 3 others went on the flipper uno whale and dolphin boat trip. I was quite dubious at first and quite frightened but it was a brilliant experience. The trip lasted 2 hours and it flew by. The boat comes out of the harbour and along the mountains and sails around until you spot a dolphin or a whale.... More

We walked past the main office in Los Gigantes and booked directly after a chat with the guy selling the various trips, we opted for the Masca Express (2 hour trip), we were told we might see dolphins and/or whales. We were so pleased that we lucky enough to see both and being in a smaller boat we were very... More

Flipper Uno is a beautiful wooden hulled ship handmade in Tenerife to resemble a Pirate Ship. The crew dress up as pirates too and are really friendly and good fun, so my children absolutely loved it. You go and look for Dolphins and Whales which is pretty much guaranteed and then they take you to a bay at the base... More
