Would highly recommend this boat trip. We did the 5 hour trip, saw so many dolphins and whales and got off into the sea for a swim too. Food was quite nice and free drinks aswell. Absolutely no negatives except don't underestimate how much you'll tan!! Maxi tanning day! Amazing day!

Booked this 5hr trip for good price at local excursion place. 5 of us went. Picked up locally by free bus, taken straight to the boat with lovely scenery on the way. Was a bit rough going out to los gigantes and people were being sick but after seeing dolphins and pilot whales on the way we were able to... More

Our pick up was from our b and b in Medano and we were taken to the catamaran. My wife doesn't like it when it's rough and it wasn't flat all the time but she still enjoyed the trip. We passed the pirate ship and that was tossing about in the waves. Glad we weren't on that.. All types of... More

We chose the 5h tour to visit los Gigantes and say hello to the dolphins and whales. They picked up us from our hotel and give us a lift to the port. The catamaran was just like on the pictures. The journey was very pleasant, little bit windy. After visiting the dolphins and whales(have seen a baby whale) we headed... More

This tour sells itself as having a 'free bus', 'free food' and 'the highlight of your holiday'. It didn't fulfil any of these things and wasn't worth €25 (per person). 'Free bus' - the night before the excursion we had a letter through our hotel door saying our free bus was cancelled and we had to make our own way... More

We opted for the 5 hour tour of Whales, Dolphins and Los Gigantes and were not disappointed. Beautiful Pilot whales around the boat and then some dolphins hunting for fish. The cliffs are stunning. There was food on the boat however eating rice and pasta off a paper plate with a plastic fork is not easy nor was it particularly... More

Fabulous experience out on the ocean on a catamaran! We saw four types of dolphin plus whales too. Lovely fun staff, ambient music, laid back atmosphere, free drinks and stunning views of the ocean and volcanic cliffs. We also had a lovely dip in the ocean, perfect for a hot day! Seriously recommended - your trip to Tenerife isn't complete... More

My wife and I booked this trip for €45 each (although we later saw it for €39 elsewhere). Lovely excursion, well informed and courteous staff on board with food and drink included. We saw whales and dolphins at really close quarters out at see providing great photo opportunities. A stop was provided for swimming and we also went by the... More

Went on a 3 hours journey with my husband. Staff were all friendly, my husband loved chatting with the captain. :) We spotted a few whales and it was amazing, they were really close to us. Also they stopped at a laguna and we had a nice swim. Excellent price for a 3 hours trip, enjoying free sandwhiches and drinks... More
