Reviewed October 24, 2012

We did enjoy the trip however the views of the dolphins were non existent and we only saw 6 or so pilot whales. The sailing was a bit rough and there were several very great faces. The buffet was less than expected rice and bread. The staff were friendly enough and do expect to pa another 15e for your photos

A good 3 hours but don't expect too much

“FreeBird 1 ...a different trip!!!”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Well as some here on TA will know it was my daughters wedding blessing on 26/Sept 2012 .She was married in Thailand in April which due to the length of flying time i couldnt under take ...So a blessing was organised for friends and family from different countries .Now i have been on FreeBird a few times and highly recommend it ,but this was very special .We hired the boat as a private trip ,130 guests lined the boat as myself and the "Bride " arrived at quayside .Once aboard the blessing was done (tears in my eyes ! Blimey arent sunglasses a saving grace !!!) once finished we set sail .Seeing Pilot whales was a big added bonus .Sadly we had to cut the trip a little short as respect for a few guests who became ill ( Sea Sick ....but i think it was more the Free Bar!!lol)Served tapas once out and a meal once back in port .All guests had a fantastic time ,and one which they say they will never forget .This was a very special day ,on a very special boat .I can highly recommend this not just for the usual trips ,but now as a venue for such celebrations .

Many ,Many thanks to Simon Goddard ,and the captain and crew for making this such a special day .I hold you in the highest regard for everything .
To family and friends thank you so much for making this a very special day for the Bride and Groom .You all "Scrubbed up nicely !!!

Regards and Best wishes ,OLeg

“Whale of Time”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Had a great time on the 1forU Freebird catamaran. Set off from Puerto Colon on a 4 and a half hour trip, after a safety talk and welcome meeting, plenty to drink, beer, wines and soft drinks, paella and salad with bread was served by the crew then you could help yourself to more. Sailed upto Gigantes and Masca then sailed out to see the Whales. The catamaran was great. Well worth the trip.
