Really enjoyed the Catamaran trip around the coast of Adeje, Highlight was the very close proximity of seeping pilot whales and grey/white dolphins jumping around in front of us. Lunch was very basic but adequate, take your own if you dont like chicken nuggets or ham/cheese sandwiches.! Even though it was the middle of January the sea was great to... More

For 25 euros each we had an amazing 3 hour trip to see the whales. Even better was that all our drinks and a meal where included. It was amazing to see the whales in there natural environment and not stuck in some tourist trap theme park.

We took the 5 hour day trip. Catamaran is a relaxing way to ride surging waves on a windy day. Saw pilot whales and three Dolphins with a baby. The trip included lunch and swimming off los gigantes. We loved to day. The only negative is the music was broken. On a boat in the sun, wind and surf great... More

This is about the ideal size of boat to go out on, small enough to make you notice everyone onboard and big enough to be comfortable. the crew are well informed about the whales and dolphins. food not the best but then again you dont want to much to eat or drink when youre on a boat in the atlantic

We went for the 3 hour trip with these guys. Were picked up by bus close to our hotel. They said 99% certainty to see whales, and a small chance of dolphins. We got both! Free drinks during the trip, and a nice paella for lunch. Recommended

Delightful cruise, friendly crew, good and easy spotting of whales and dolphins. The food is nice and the trip is relaxing and enjoyable. The 5-hr cruise allows you to see Los Gigantes and to have a swift dive in Masca bay!
