      A fabulous boat excursion !!
      We've just returned from our morning boat excursion. What a fabulous service this is! We got picked up from our hotel & escorted to the harbour to join our boat. We were met by very friendly staff who explained what to expect. We boarded the boat with our captain Max & few other passengers. We began our trip with a glass of champagne & headed out to sea. We saw a huge turtle, then the dolphins, and further out the whales ! Fabulous. We went to a quiet bay & enjoyed our food -sandwiches, fruit & drinks, had a swim & you could snorkel if you wished. All in all, an amazing trip, thankyou to all the staff, can definitely recommend this boat excursion if your in this area 😊

      10/10 Boat Experience
      Absolutely delighted with the boat trip for my father in laws 60th We had a toddler in tow which can be a bit tricky on a boat, but they were so amazing with him. Even let him have a go up front!! We all felt so at home, beautiful surroundings, warm & attentive crew. 10/10 Ps. If you want to go for lunch after give Porto Colón a miss, we found out the hard way.

      A great experience with all of my hermanos
      This was a special experience, we arrived and were greeted with some nice refreshments while the boat took off. We then got to see a family of whales who were jumping around in close proximity to the boat. It was such a great day to be out on the boat with the weather being perfect and the water was kind as it was not too rocky. We were given beer and champagne while we cruised the sea and were taught all about the sea. We then jumped into the sea off the back of the boat and got to snorkel which was such a cool experience. When returning to shore a dolphin swam just below the boat, this was an amazing experience and something I will never forget. Juan was an excellent navigator, he had loads of times for questions (even stupid ones) and made the trip even better. Juan even took the time to take plenty of pictures and videos of us in the sea on our phones for us, this was greatly appreciated. I would definitely recommend this boat excursion and I will miss my Hermano Juan. I will return as a fluent Spanish speaker thanks to your language lessons. Remember stay clear of pirates and dolphins!

      Wildlife was beautiful.
      We enjoyed the trip and saw dolphins, pilot whales and a turtle. The turtle had fishing line and netting caught around its neck. We managed to free the turtle from the debris which was brilliant. We hope the turtle will live a long life now. The sea is very choppy and two of my family became sea sick. This did spoil the trip for them. I would recommend this trip but I would like to recommend to the company running the trip to ensure that the guests are told where to find life jackets and first aid kit. It was somewhat alarming that the captain did not know where the first aid kit was.

      June 2023 3 Hour Private Motorboat Tour “No Worries”
      Juan and José were absolutely amazing! They were both very knowledgeable and provided us with fabulous food, drinks and fantastic humour throughout the whole day!! I would definitely recommend Tenerife Sailing Charters for any event! We also saw pilot whales, bottle nose dolphins and plenty of fish too as well as being able to swim at a nice secluded spot!! Thank you both so much! You made our whole experience so enjoyable and memorable!! You both really were a fantastic team!! The boat was called No Worries which provided plenty of space for our group of 9.

      Excellent Sailing Tour with Awesome Captain Dani!!
      The best part were the whales and dolphins and the super knowledgeable and thoughtful Captain Dani! I forgot my water bottle on the boat and he ran it over to the taxi to catch me before I left. The tour included info about the area and the beautiful animals we were looking at. Super nice people very comfortable atmosphere. Captain Dani put up the sails halfway through and it was a pleasant change. We even got to stop fora swim! Excellent tour!!

      Horrible experience! Don’t trust the good reviews, like I did
      Worse customer experience! We arrived on time, stepped on the boat, the captain asked us where are we from and then forced us to stay in front of the boat, where is no cover to help you to hide a little bit from the sun. We told him that we would like to stay with the others because there were empty spots in there, but he refused us saying we either stay there or step out of the boat (it’s my first time experiencing racism, I didn’t realize initially it’s discrimination what is happening). However, we then stepped out of the boat, he called his boss and gave us our flip flops. We wanted to talk to the manager to try to find a solution, but all the people from the staff were extremely rude, they told us to “f*** off” and were avoiding us, screaming and so on. After we left I gave them a bad review on Get Your Guide, the manager then called me telling me to “say bye to your money” and that he is not giving me a refund because of the review. When I explained him again what happened he told me that maybe the captain “had his reasons”. I can understand working with people it’s one of the hardest things to do, but if you don’t like it, then don’t do it…they were talking to us like we should be sorry when actually we are the ones expecting apologies. All they are promising is really fake, you pay a lot of money for rude people and nothing similar to a “luxury experience” (as they are calling it). They are just sharks looking for money, not providing quality services…an this captain named Guy is just horrible…I forgot to mention that all of this happened after the captain held a speech about how to make the world a better place 😂

      Great experience
      Great experience! We rented the boat for our own party of 5. From meeting us to dropping us off was 1st class. See the whales on several occasions whilst at sea. The captain let us decide on what we wanted to do. Watch out if you go for a swim in one o the bays as the captain kept feeding the fish around us whilst we swam around! great fun for all the family. Would do again!

      Amazing experience in the middle of the whales on a small and beautiful boat.
      Amazing experience on this beautiful boat, far away from mass tourism. We were just 10 people and never felt squeezed. The captain was very professional, knowledgeable and spoke very nice English. We came across a few green turtles and could stand still in the middle of a group of >20 pilot whales. This was a unique experience, just 3-4 meters away from us. You could hear them breathing. We definitely recommend this boat, over the big catamaran tours if you like more quietness and interaction with the captain.

      No Worries
      Our trip on ‘No Worries’ was beautiful! The food and drinks were fantastic and the crew was attentive and kind. We saw dolphins, turtles and had a great time swimming in the ocean. Many thanks to Juan and the crew!

      Magical day on the water.
      Wonderful day out to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Guy, our caption for the day, was the incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the environment and sailing. We felt like friends at the end of the trip! On the day we sailed there was a significant onshore breeze so we couldn’t anchor or swim, but more than made up for by the whale and dolphin sightings and the conversation. Thoroughly recommended. Especially for those who enjoy what Tenerife has to offer.

      Lovely day at sea
      Lovely time at sea. Calm, professional sailor. Saw whale and dolphins. Had a swim in the sea. A little fruit, drinks and some snacks. We were alone except from one Spanish lady, so we were lucky. Recommended.

      Fantastic trip!
      We booked a trip last minute to see whales and dolphins. We wanted a smaller more personal experience so this was an excellent choice with only 11 people max. On arrival the other group had cancelled so there was just the four of us. Champagne and fruit on arrival which was topped up. Lunch was baguettes with soft drinks available. We saw many whales and a couple of dolphins which was amazing. Dani was our captain and he was very knowledgeable about all marine life and the whales and dolphins. He was very respectful about timings too. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he was happy to answer questions. We stopped in a bay for a swim which was lovely and then had a lovely slow sail back to the port whilst sitting in the sun. I highly recommend this trip and company- they were very good to deal with. Dani was a great captain and a credit to the company. Would definitely do this again.

      Excellent yacht experience
      Had a fantastic trip on the Antares yacht with Captain Jose and Juan. Very entertaining and knowledgeable about wildlife and nature. Yacht was very clean and pristine. Food served was excellent and plentiful. Lots of varied drinks. Got to swim in the sea and snorkel when moored up for lunch. Saw some dolphins.

    Due to weather our booking was rescheduled from a afternoon to a sunset cruise. This didn’t allow us to go to los Gigantos which is supposed to be really beautiful. We did see some pilot whales but no dolphins. Snacks and drinks were available but we didn’t indulge much due to the waves of the sea. If you get sea sick easily beware, even the smaller waves can pack a punch if you are not used to being on a boat. The views of the sunset were pretty amazing at sea. Also the Italian captain was a cool dude. Overal a nice but slightly overpriced experience for what we got.

    Hello Happy to hear you enjoyed the amazing sunset which you get from the boat, we are also happy we where able to take you to see the whales and sorry you did not see dolphins, it’s nature after all. Just to let you know, out 3 hour charters do not include los Giganties, that is only possible on our 6 hour private charters. Uri the captain always does his best

    This was the highlight of our holiday and by far one of the best boat tours I’ve been on. We booked a 3 hour trip and were collected from our hotel and taken to the harbour to meet the skipper Jaime and his brother, after a safety brief we were on our way to open water. This charter only takes 8-9 people, so you get a unique and personal experience. Jaime is fluent is Spanish, English and French.

    Jaime is incredibly knowledgeable about the water and marine life and clearly passionate about his job. He explained the species, how they live and we were lucky enough to see a pod of pilot whales and their babies.

    Refreshments were provided throughout throughout the trip and after whale watching we ate fruit whilst enjoying the views from the front of the boat and a little sunbathing. We then headed to a small bay at the base of Los Gigantes cliffs , which made a stunning backdrop for swimming and snorkelling, after which they served the the best bocadillo I’ve ever tasted.
    We can’t recommend Third charter enough
    and will definitely use them again.

    An incredible experience with the family, young and old, many thanks TSC team! Very professional and very attentive - my father is somewhat disababled these days and was a bit apprehensive about the trip, but the owners and crew made him feel at ease straight away and looked after him, and all of us, throughout the journey. We saw dolphins and whales in adundabce and the whole experience from start to finish was magical, unforgettable. Great snacks and plenty of refreshments, served by the crew, whenever required. We cannot recommend the experience highly enough. Thank you TSC, once again.

    6/5 star if I could. It was a very wonderful experience - we got very close to many whales and animals and could see a lot of interesting things. The captain was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the sea (he even let me drive the boat and taught me how to for a while) and it was a truly unforgettable experience - highly recommend it to anyone going to Tenerife!!

    We chose this company based on smaller group numbers and the fact that their website advertises transport is included. We paid the deposit and enquired about the transport and was asked instead to get and taxi and the cost would be deducted from the final amount. Getting a taxi there was easy as we had a taxi rank outside out hotel, and we were given money back. However, getting a taxi home was another matter - massive queues at the taxi rank nearest the port and people jumping the queues and arguing. We walked to another rank and waited for 10 mins but no taxis stopped. In the end we walked for a while and managed to flag a taxi down. This really spoilt the trip for us as we would have preferred a trip with transport included. The boat trip itself was really nice - was a bit choppy but nothing too bad and we saw whales and dolphins. I think the stop off in the bay to swim is not great as it is very choppy and made us all feel a bit sick and snorkelling there is quite hard when you are bobbing around so much.

    We had a fantastic 3 hour charter upon “No Worries”. Paul and Natalia picked us up from our resort and took us directly to the harbour. The captain and waiter were extremely professional, friendly and funny and made the whole experience even better. We saw a pod of whales up close which was fantastic; as we got close the engines were shut off and we just floated on by and then continued our trip without “chasing them”. We were then treated to a pod of dolphins and a couple of turtles close to the fisheries which was lovely. Then off to swim in the sea, jump from the boat and snorkel. Followed up by baguettes and fresh fruit. Free drinks throughout the charter also. It was worth every penny and a must if you’re staying in the Costa Adeje area of Tenerife!

    Fantastic trip. We (2 adults, 2 kids of 5 and 8) had a great experience. Just a small party of 8 guests plus captain Dani (very nice guy!) who headed out for maybe 25 min before spotting a very non-shy sea turtle. Another 10 min and we spotted numerous pilot whales. Very happy party, then we sailed to a bay for about 20 min of swimming and chilling with sandwiches and beer. Only minus: No sonar was used and the sparkling wine on arrival was not champagne, but still 5/5. Best excurtion we’ve experienced regarding value for money.

    I really loved this tour.

    I love the water and I enjoyed being on a small boat with a small group of people.

    The tour guide was very informative, friendly, and spoke to everyone in their native language.

    I wish I could have stayed longer on the boat and on the water because I just felt so at peace there.

    We got to see dolphins, whales, and turtles. I also really appreciated the fact that we were respectful of their territory.

    I found this to be a great activity to do alone too. Thank you for a great time!

    Absolutely brilliant day, was everything we hoped for and more! Captain Dani was a star, a wonderful host and captain. We saw lots of dolphins and whales, had a
    Lovely swim and Dani also put the sails up for a while when the wind rose a little which was sublime. Drinks were free and cold. We were six and there were 2 others on the boat and we really felt like we had a private trip. Can highly recommend to anybody considering a boat trip!

    Amazing day out! Watched a family of pilot whales swim around us for a while! Note that dolphins won’t necessarily be seen. They told us ‘you don’t find the dolphins, the dolphins find you’ so we didn’t get to see any. I did also request a vegetarian option for the boat which they said was no problem and then didn’t actually cater to it. Which was slightly disappointing. But a fabulous morning none the less

    Hi, Many thanks for the review! We are very sorry for the mistake with the vegetarian option. As for the dolphins we can never guarantee that the animals will be seen as they do live in the wild. This being said we can't wait to have you onboard again so we can amend the mistake and hopefully see the dolphins. Kind Regards
