Didnt see dolphins in the 1.5hrs, you needed to go further out to sea, i think but the speedboat was very enjoyable , excellent comfortable seats ,which many boats aren't, clean boat and friendly staff.Still worth going on even though no dolphins to be seen. I would recommend

From the moment we were picked up from our hotel it was an excellent excursion. Really friendly, attentive staff. Boat was not too big and had everything on board that we needed. Scenery spectacular and we saw some dolphins!!! Well worth the time and great value.

Trip was very good, unfortunately didn’t see any dolphins or whales etc, the captain and team were all very good, entertainment was great and captain spoke various languages to accommodate everyone. Should definitely be a part of your Fuerteventura experience.

Lovely relaxing boat ride. Has a toilet aboard and the host gave unlimited beer, water or Pepsi. Host and captain were very nice

Great experience, the boat trip alone was great…. And finally saw some dolphins...super cool guide
