Catlanza´s memorable crew will look after you, so relax with a drink in hand from the open bar and watch out for dolphins and whales. Swim and snorkel in the crystal clear waters. Take an exhilarating jetski ride around the bay. Perfect for families or choose Platinum for the adults only. All drinks and lunch included.

This was a fabulous trip. The crew was entertaining, friendly and helpful. The food was basic but good (this is a catamaran, not a Michelin restaurant) and plenty of booze. We had our first ever ride on a jet ski which was great fun and the water was just warm enough (19C) to snorkel in and see loads of large sea bream that congregate under the catamaran. There was a party atmosphere at the meal time. Clearly the success of a trip like this depends on the weather and we were fortunate to have good weather on the day.

A fantastic trip out! The staff were lovely and friendly and spoke many languages. You also have the opportunity to go on a jet ski which I did despite being nervous and loved every minute of it! You can also have a swim about and go scuba diving, which we didn't do unfortunately because of the cold temperature of the water!

The food provided on board was basic and there wasn't a lot of choice: either tuna pasta or vegetarian. Both of us hate tuna and the vegetarian was a bit bland but I suppose for being on a boat it was ok!

Overall though a recommended trip out :)

Thanks for your review Sarah K , it's a shame you didn't take the plunge for a snorkel, the water temperature can drop to around 18-19 degrees in the winter but even then it's still warmer than the sea in the UK during the summer months. The crew are frequently asked for our pasta sauce recipe! We're also really pleased you overcame your nerves to go out on the Jet Ski.

Thank you for your review, it's great to hear that you all enjoyed one of our Gold family excursions, the crew like having little ones onboard to join in the pirate fun & games.

We had such a fun time despite the weather being cloudy - the pirates are welcoming and entertaining, the drinks flow and the food is good. When we stopped many braved the slide into the sea and snorkelling, although the water is clear and you can watch the fish from the deck as well as those taken for a thrilling ride on the jet ski. Returning to Puerto Calero with the wind in your hair and the spray in your face is a great experience.

This is a great way to spend 4 hours and you will wish it could have been longer. The whole experience, starting with the staff's welcome aboard, the very entertaining safety and information briefing, the inclusive drinks of beer, wine and soft drinks, the basic but tasty food, the snorkelling, the jet-ski riding, the feeding of the fish, the feeding of "Fred" the seagull and the time at sea chatting with the new friends you will inevitably make, is just brilliant.
Like us, you can chose to sail on the adults-only days
The staff make it really special and all of them have got careers in stand-up comedy if the catamaran ever sinks.
Ensure you buy the EUR 5.00 photograph as a reminder of this top day
