With a couple of hundred people crammed onto this glass-bottom catamaran, boarding felt like being on public transport, with people jostling for a seat even before the last coach load of passengers had arrived. One woman literally sat on top of me, crushing my thigh, before telling me to move my children so her husband could sit down.
Glad we only did the two-hour cruise. Can't imagine how they would serve food.
There are three decks, upper (best for viewing the dolphins and whales, but gets a little cold so might be worth bringing a long sleeve jacket) lower (felt a bit claustrophobic and the blasting speakers hurt our ears) and below decks are the two glass-sided viewing areas. These could only house about ten people each comfortably, though they were empty at the start and they fed the fish in the port before we embarked so worth a trip down with the children.
We eventually found a place to sit unmolested outside the toilet on the upper deck.
The journey out gave great views of the island. The only commentary was a hard-sell on drinks and snacks and their DVD.
They take your photos and sell them at €10 for one €15 for two and €20 for four, though two of the photos were simply cropped or B&W versions of the others.
The highlight and saving grace of this trip were the dolphins who performed wonderfully, following the wake of the boat and leaping into the air.
The commentary about the animals was very good and we also got to view the pilot whales.
Trip back was relaxed, again lovely views of Tenerife and 80s ballad type music.
We went in February, can't imagine this trip in high season.
Has the potential to be great but just too many people aboard to make this a recommendable excursion.
Two years ago we took a smaller boat to view the dolphins and whales and it was a much nicer experience with no hard sell.
The charms of this excursion were all outside of the boat.
