    The boat tour was everything I expected and more! The boat is spacious and taken care of. The guides were very kind and helpful, they even dropped of my book at my hotel that fell out of my bag during the sailing. We saw dolphins and went swimming in beautiful turquoise water. We also got some really amazing goat cheese from the island and other little snacks after swimming. Truly a wonderful experience! Thanks so much☺️

  • Tenerife: Snorkeling Trip in the Turtle Area

    Marvel at the marine life of the Canary Islands on a snorkeling adventure off the south coast of Tenerife. Treat the family to an adventure suitable for adults and children. Make it the highlight of your vacation as you encounter a wide variety of creatures in near-perfect conditions. Great for beginners, the trip takes place in an area where turtles live and includes a 15-minute speedboat ride along the coast.  Benefit from the services of a guide who will give you advice on where you can see marine species, including colorful fish, dolphins, whales, turtles, rays and octopus!

    First time snorkelling and it was amazing!! We felt fully informed for the whole process, we got kitted up and went straight out! The boat ride was loads of fun but you spend most of the time in the water, which is what we were all there to do! We saw 3 turtles and had a great time, once back on the boat there was water and muffins which was a welcome surprise. Great guides and captain, thank you!

  • Oasis Wildlife Fuerteventura Ticket and Optional Camel Ride

    9. Oasis Wildlife Fuerteventura Ticket and Optional Camel Ride

    Make your way to Oasis Wildlife Fuerteventura and journey through some of the most exciting regions of the world. Discover a refuge that enhances the survival of the ecosystem in a real oasis. See striking flora in various parts of the park and at the only botanical garden on the island. Fall in love with tropical succulents and native plants.  Attend the live demonstrations by sea lions, reptiles, birds of prey and parrots and their handlers, and interact with lemurs and sea lions in the water. Nourish yourself at the park's 3 restaurants and enjoy exquisite cuisine in a unique environment. Follow a route through the park to discover some 3,000 animals from 250 different species. Go on a camel safari at the largest camel reserve in Europe, look into the bright eyes of the curious lemurs from Madagascar or get your photo taken with a friendly giraffe.

    2nd visit here. Not as good as before but a good place to visit. Be prepared though, even if you have a printed ticket or an online booking everyone, absolutely everyone still has to queue up to get another ticket to go in and it takes ages. Also the maps are very confusing and it's a very, very big place. So come prepared for walking. On the positive side the animals look well cared for. There are plenty of big restaurants and they are very reasonable prices for food and drink. There ate lots and lots of toilet facilities and they are all spotlessly clean. If you have never been it's well worth a visit.

  • From Corralejo: Lobos Island Entrance and Snorkel Activity

    10. From Corralejo: Lobos Island Entrance and Snorkel Activity

    Take a trip on a glass bottom boat and admire the beauty of the island’s tranquil waters and underwater life. Board your tour vessel at 1:15 PM at the harbour of Lobos Island and join your friendly guides on a trip to the sea beds of this little dream spot in the north of Fuerteventura. Start your adventure with a short boat trip (10-minutes) along the south coast of Isla de Lobos, and then, stop to take a relaxing bath for around 25-minutes. During your dip in the luxurious waters, you can feed the fish, swim and/or go snorkelling. Your tour ticket also allows you entrance to the island, letting you explore the small paradise freely. With this trip you will be able to enjoy the sea’s thousand different blue tones, from a clear green turquoise to a more intense blue color that surrounds the protected national park. Under these amazing waters and dancing around your feet, you will get to...

    Lobos Island is lovely and worth a visit. I recommend going up Montaña La Caldera for a great view of the island, Lanzarote, and Fuerteventura, visiting Puertito Isla De Lobos, and relaxing at Playa De La Concha De Lobos. You can also walk all the way to Faro de Punta Martiño but doing that will not leave much time for relaxing. The snorkeling trip was fun too as tons of fish are drawn to the bread the crew tossed into the water. The boat crew was amazing. They cared about every individual, helped kids and the elderly, warned about water spray, etc.

Thorough enjoyed it, the zoo and the splash Park amazing. Disappointed the show at night wasn't on due to covid. Had trouble understanding if the rancho texas bus was collecting us or not. We ended up taking a taxi to the park.
