      Reset and see something totally amazing.
      Full moon was amazing,catch 22 though as it was so bright it was difficult to see the night sky in all it's glory but we did get to see some amazing sights not visible to the naked eye.The guys were very informative,the sun set was incredible,if you want a quite/amazing night,reset and go on this journey you won't be disappointed.

      I could not recommend these guys enough ✨
      We did this on one of our last days just to spread all our excursions out! It was absolutely amazing! The tour guides were so lovely and made sure we were safe but enjoying it at the same time. The views were breath taking! I would recommend to anyone going to Tenerife! We also had 3 other excursions booked (self hire boat, sun set tour and clear kayaking) with the team and they were all amazing! Dan booked us in for them all and he was so lovely! Made sure they were all worth our while! We had one excursion cancelled due to the weather and the team were amazing made sure we had our money back straight away and offered other excursions! The whole team are so helpful and active on socials if you needed to contact them. I can not recommend Tenerife first excursion enough! (Especially Dan in Los Cristos) Thank you so much we will definitely be using you guys again on our next trip to Tenerife ✨

      Best life experience ✨
      We have the absolute best experience! The food was lovely! The tour guide was amazing and made everyone feel welcome with his wide range of languages. We didn’t only get to see the start but one of the most amazing sun sets! The star gazing was a once in a life time thing! I will never forget it! I would put this in the best top 5 days of my life ✨

      10/10 Tenerife first excursions
      Thank you to Tenerife first excursions for helping make our holiday the best and most memorable time. We booked the 1 hour jet ski, opera 60 boat trip, volcano sunset buggy tour, Siam park day&night and monkey park. We enjoyed every second of it and are already planning our trip back. Would highly recommend booking with Tenerife first excursions, everyone from the team are so lovely and helpful. We absolutely love it!

      Self drive boat - 3 hour trip
      This is definitely worth booking! If we came back again to Tenerife we would definitely go again. The instructions for the boat are very easy to follow and the hosts were lovely people. They also provided a speaker, various swimming equipment (snorkels, flippers and underwater jet etc) as well as snacks, water and a cool box for your own use which we found was a very nice touch! Would definitely recommend buying and taking sea sickness tablets before you go however, as the sea is unpredictable especially in such a small boat. This is obviously no fault of the company and we still had fun none the less! Thank you guys!

      After watching the page on Tik Tok for months before we came on holiday we knew this was the place to go and book our excursions. Massive shout out to Mattie and the team for making the booking process very easy, we had a great time at both Loro Parque and Siam park. I absolutely love it 👏

      Amazing business and staff!!
      We went to Tenerife First as we saw it all over tiktok and how much other people were recommending them. We booked the buggy sunset drive up mount teide before we came out. (highly recommend it was amazing!!!) Then at the shop we booked lots more excursions with Lisa, she was so so lovely!! Everything was so well organised and we had no complaints, thank you so much!

      Amazing Experience
      What an amazing trip! One not to miss. The staff were so friendly, informative & helpful. A very professional set up where you are provided padded jackets & decent helmets. Water & snacks are handed out throughout the trip. We arranged a pick up from Amarilla Golf which was only 20 euros! Couldn't praise this company enough. Mount Teidi is beautiful at sunset. One piece of advice wear long trousers & bring a jumper, once the sun goes down it's freezing!!!

    Advertisement is for a luxury trip with a super service. In reality the dolphin and whale watching tooked approx 15min of 3h trip. The meal consisted of one chicken leg with rice at the level of a poor bar menu. There were not even basic fruits nor advertised tapas as printed on their flyer. Majority of the time was spent in a bay that you can use for a swim. Constantly begging for good comments as top experience on trip advisor. Do not expect any luxury on this excursion. Everything is just very basic. No value for this money.

    1:30pm trip on Monday 20th May 2024.

    The trip was highly anticipated and we departed on time.
    The boat is lovely with plenty of space to roam around. We were lucky enough to spend most of our time on the comfy seats at the rear.

    The first hour and a half were great. We saw plenty of Pilot Whales and the experience was great.

    However, there were a couple on board who were completely overbearing. She had one volume which was LOUD and he was Mr annoying, with an unmovable opinion about everything.

    When we moored up for swimming and food, Mr annoying managed to talk The Skipper into Bluetoothing his IPhone to the music system on board. He and Mrs Loud played their choice of songs at full volume, trying to rope everyone else into a ‘very’ loud party atmosphere.
    Others on board were too polite to say anything and went along with it. Mr annoying kept asking anyone who would engage with him, their favourite song. If you didn’t want to play his game, he kept on and on and on asking “what’s your favourite song” and wouldn’t let up until he had battered you into submission.
    I had the audacity to ask him to turn it down which he clearly didn’t like and Mrs Loud was visibly angry!

    So we had an incredibly loud lunch and they continued to play their music until about 10 minutes from the end of the trip.

    So my score of 3 is only to highlight to the crew, don’t let paying customers Bluetooth their music to your system as you need to be in control of the whole experience and cater for the needs of all on board.

    Boat, whales, drinks, food, all great.
    Owners/crew, be more aware of the people on board.

    Great trip, weather wasn’t great but didn’t take from the overall experience. Great to see the whales s as d dolphins up close and the food and drink was lovely. For us the piece de resistance was the swim off the boat and snorkelling

    Can’t recommend this company enough. We went it to book a boat excursion to see the whales, we were greeted by Lisa who sat us down and went through all of our options. Initially we were looking at a catamaran but after Lisa showed us an alternative smaller boat (Opera 60) we opted for that. She clearly explained the benefits of this against the larger boats. The trip we had was amazing, the boat, staff, food were more than we expected and to top it all off we saw the whales, and lots of the too. I’m really happy with TFE and the recommendation Lisa gave us, I can’t fault her or the company at all. We even went back the next day as I wanted to thank her personally but she was off work so I went back a couple days later and caught her to say thanks. I know there are a lot of excursion company’s around in the resorts but this one stands head and shoulders above them all. Check them out - you won’t be disappointed, that’s a guarantee.

    Fantastic!
    If there's one thing the canary islands has, it's fantastic weather. Add in a boat, a few party goers, delicious food, throw-back-sing-along music, and beautiful sea creatures in their natural habitat, and it's a memory to be sure.

    Our captain was as friendly as he was knowledgeable.
    The "icing" on this adventure?, saying "I Do!, again",
    to another 30 years. My amazing husband managed to surprise me, and the captain, too!

    The Cava was cold and plentiful; the hugs from our fellow passengers, were warm and sincere. It was the perfect way to mark a special day. If you have a chance to visit this beautiful island, make THIS excursion a "must do"!

    Great experience, Great boat, great host. We started out on the boat and was greeted by Richard the captain, he explained what we may or may not see and started to serve the drinks (all included). We had been going around half hour and then spotted some pilot whales, great to see these creatures in their environment.
    Also spotted dolphins whilst heading to a nice bay where we moored for some food.
    You could swim here jumping of the boat and the water was very warm.
    We were served chicken, rice and veg and it was very nice.
    After a while we set off back to our dock and the end of the trip.
    Richard is a top class host and captain......Thanks for a top class experience

    I just had this trip today in the 13:30 slot. The weather turned out perfect and the boat was a lot of fun. The guide speaks several languages and tries to engage with everyone. Also it's a big enough boat and a small enough crowd that you don't feel suffocated, but can still be social.

    Myself and my friend used Tenerife first excursions during our trip in October and we were really happy with the service provided. We went on the Luxury Opera 60 whale and dolphin experience which was a great trip, highly recommended.
    Daniel was extremely friendly and helpful and gave us lots of tourist information along with booking our excursion.
    Daniel's fluent English was a great help in communicating when the even we had originally booked fell through.

    A fun trip for a family. The owner of the boat / speaker was very entertaining and explained well the difference between wales and dolphins. It is a great day adventure and a good thing to do to get away from the crowds at the south of the island or to get nice views on the island and the volcano.

    Spacious boat, did not get seasick. Did see some whales. Fun getting in the water, but Tenerife isn’t really a snorkeling destination, so nothing to see. Lunch was substantial, not just snacks like other tour options. The captain was interesting lol. Very thick Italian accent and his voice does not project, so everyone had trouble hearing and/or understanding him, and he’d get progressively frustrated when he repeated himself. This is not to say he wasn’t nice, he still kept everyone’s glasses full and was helpful whenever anyone had questions.
