“Excellent Excursion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We booked our excursion through Thomsons, quite pricey for a half day, but had a fabulous time.

Picked up by coach behind our hotel we were taken to the lovely area of Puerto Calero to pick up the catamaran. Getting on took a while as they take your photo as a souvenir, which we expected to cost a fortune later! Once all on we were on our way following the coast to the Papagayo area at the south of Lanzarote. Our crew, all excellent, made the short trip fun and exciting. Kids were given bandanas to wear and their faces painted like pirates. The bar was open serving soft drinks, beer, wine and a lovely champagne cocktail and everyone kicked back on the nets soaking up the sunshine and atmosphere. Once anchored up the snorkelling gear was laid out, the slide into the sea positioned and the jet ski unloaded. I took my son on his first ever go and he loved it! An instructor drives you, but he was funny and gave us a great quick ride. Children of any age can go as long as they're accompanied by an adult. The sea was quite chilly, but the slide down is the quickest and best way for those wanting short sharp shock!!

Lunch consisted of pasta, sauce, salad and bread. A staple diet but it was tasty and filled the gap in your tummy, drinks as mentioned above available during the entire trip.

Sailing back was relaxing and fruit was offered, as well as more face painting.

The crew were excellent. Forgive my ignorance at not remembering his name, but the English chap was funny and gave all announcements in such a numerous way we were laughing the whole way. I wasn't sure hat to expect on this trip, but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and I would definitely recommend as an excursion. Not cheap for sure, but very enjoyable.

Ps...when we got back our photo was ready. 5 euros made it worth the purchase for a great memory.

“Brilliant day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

My friend and I went went on a trip from Fuerteventura to Lanzarote in July and had a brilliant afternoon with fantastic hospitality from the crew. Everything has been thought of, from transport from our hotel to the food and drink and the snorkelling gear on board. The catamaran is amazing and the jet ski trip is a real bonus. We could have spent all day out on the water! Highly recommended :)

“So glad we went on this trip, it was the highlight of our holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I cannot praise this excursion enough, it was AMAZING!!!! The staff really make you feel welcome and like your one of their friends. I went on this trip with my two daughters 10 and 8 and we had an amazing time, even if we didn't manage to spot any whales or dolphins (but is was fine trying to find them). Carl was fantastic made you feel so welcome and was great with the kids, even let them wear his pirate hat and steer the boat. Moored up in a beautiful cove for some lunch and jet skiing, snorkling, with a free flowing bar, i really cant think of anything that would have made this trip any better (apart from seeing some dolphins or whales obviously lol)

“You can't go to lanzarote without going on this trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

4 years a go we as a family went on this trip, it was amazing I didn't think it could be beat. This month we decided to go again, and we were wrong! The staff are so friendly and want to cater to your every need. The driver allowed children to drive the boat both there and back with staff takin photos of them with there families. A lovely ride out seeing a few dolphins and by my suprise the driver turned round to get closer to them with about 6 coming right next to the boat. After that excitement we arrived to a beautiful spot were you could snorkell, jet ski and slide down the slide into the sea, the jet ski was just as good as the last time! Drinks are constantly being served and food is then served a delicious pasta, a vegetarian option is available and cheese bread and salad. All the staff like to get involved and drawn pirate moustaches and beards on the children and giving them bandanas and pirate hats to get pictures with the crew. The way back is just as fun as the diver ensures everyone at on the nets gets soaked! It was an amazing trip overall it made my holiday, the staff are beyond friendly and the food and drink was great. Well worth the money and I will be returning very soon!

“Great day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We had a fantastic time on our trip with the Catlanza crew. They are a really friendly group and the catamaran is stunning. We sailed out to the beach in lanzarote, did some snorkelling, which was incredible, and rode the jet ski, before having some lunch. Bar was open during the whole trip and they were very generous with the drinks, right up until the very end! Best part of our whole trip, highly recommend it!
