What an amazing day we had on board with Ivan! Truly the most memorable of our entire time in Tenerife. The trip was initially recommended by fellow guests at our hotel who had very much enjoyed their excursion and we ended up going with another family from the hotel, making four adults and two very excited little girls. As noted elsewhere, Ivan is an expert sailor and a genial and extremely knowledgeable host, brilliantly explaining so much about the north Atlantic marine life and the geography and history of the archipelago. We were simply thrilled to watch the pilot whales from such close quarters and the day we sailed with Ivan was the only one during our 10-day trip that the neighbouring island of La Gomera was visible through the haze. Again, as other guests have mentioned, the trip is excellent value and the stop for picnic lunch and a swim off a private beach felt like the icing on the cake. Just the best family day out and very, very highly recommended.

We went on this boat yesterday (1/08/20) Ivan was the perfect host for our group. 6 of us, 4 adults and two teenagers. His knowledge was incredible and he was such a lovely guy. We managed to spot a group of pilot whales. He knew exactly where to find them. He made us some snacks for while we were on board, nothing fancy but it was exactly what we needed (sandwiches, crisps and fresh olives) Would highly recommend this trip if you’re in Tenerife. It was approximately 3-4 hours. The boat is beautiful and comfortable.

Boat was very nice, and Ivan was an excellent guide. Would have done a longer trip if we had the time. Worth the money.

A fantastic time with great sailing experience at Canary Charter Everything was perfect. From the ship with a great skipper, over the route to the weather everything was perfect. We stayed in beautiful bays in Tenerife, La Gomera and El Hiero, saw whales and dolphins, experienced fantastic sunsets and had a perfect atmosphere on board. Not least through our skipper we were able to enjoy this holiday to the fullest. There was absolutely nothing missing and we are thrilled. The service of Canary Charter is simply 100%. Very professional, always the necessary security and maximum freedom for us on the ship and on land. We could actively sail or even enjoy the ride according to his wishes. To experience such relaxation while sailing and still to sail with a lot of fun in the wind is anything else than self-evident. With this skipper everyone gets their money's worth and there are no wishes left unfulfilled. The ship is just super well maintained and we missed absolutely nothing. Here you can see the attention to detail and the experience with the Canary Charter occurs. Together with the skipper we were a perfect team and had a lot of fun together. We could anchor in absolutely dreamlike bays and were so in the most beautiful and romantic places of the Canary Islands. On the trip we were lucky and were able to catch fresh fish, which the skipper prepared for us in unforgettable quality. We will certainly come back next year to relive this beautiful adventure. Until then, we will keep the memories alive.

I have done whale watching experiences in Tenerife before with other companies, and they were good, but this was better! Ivan was excellent at communicating and responding when booking the excursion. He speaks fluent English and even accommodated dietary needs when providing lunch. We were a family of 7; he collected us from outside our villa in a clean, comfortable minivan and returned us after the experience. The boat ride was smooth and far more relaxing than any other I've been on. Nothing felt rushed and even the music playing on board was perfectly chosen. Sailing really makes all the difference - you will notice most other whale watching boats are large, crowded noisy motor boats and catamarans. Ivan is such a competent sailor, I felt at ease the whole time which was really important to me as I have a mild fear of open water. We had no sea sickness and I even felt comfortable enough to go and sit at the bow of the yacht. On our trip we were lucky enough to see Green Turtles, Pilot Whales, Dolphins and Shearwaters. Ivan was very knowledgeable about the animals and Tenerife's ecology. He was so interesting to listen to and told us about the volcanoes of Tenerife and pointed out interesting geology along the coastline. The most important thing to say about Ivan is how much he cared for and respected the wildlife. We witnessed other boats scaring the whales by revving their motors to get to them faster, and one boat practically crashed into the whales. Ivan's patient and peaceful approach paid off when the whales actively swam away from the other boats and chose to swim and breach literally inches from our boat. We got some amazing photos! Ivan carries the yellow Blue Boat authorisation flag that all approved whale watching boats should have (beware, there are a lot of unauthorised whale watching excursions in Tenerife). He is the same price as most other whale watching tours in the area, but his service and the experience are definitely first class.
