We were picked up at our hotel at about 8.30am and were taken to the port. We then boarded the boat and sailed around for 2-3 hours. We saw a hammerhead shark and flying fish straight away and then didn't see anything for an hour or two. The guides were brilliant and frequently phoned other boats to see if anyone had seen any dolphins. After one phone call, we sailed to an area where dolphins had been and saw so many dolphins, which came right up to the boat. They were pilot whale dolphins. Photos were taken on the journey and throughout the day. We then sailed to the cove of Lobos and stopped to do snorkelling, paddle boarding, and canoeing. Photos were taken throughout this (high-quality photos that are free to download after the excursion), including underwater photos with the fish. Lunch of a seafood paella was provided. I am vegetarian so stayed in the water while everyone ate. There were about 12 of us on the tour. Brilliant experience.

This was a great tour. We met at Burger King in the morning and walked a short distance to the dune buggies. We chose to have the photographer option (40 euros) and received about 40 high-quality photos and video footage too. The tour guides were friendly, made sure everyone was safe and were fun. We drove on the road for about 50% of the time and off-road about 50% of the time. We visited the sand dunes, then drove to the mountainous range. Definitely wear clothes you don't mind getting dusty, sunglasses, and a bandana to cover your nose and mouth. There is an option to change drivers half way through the tour (make sure you bring your driving license). Brilliant tour!

This excursion was without doubt the highlight of our holiday. Captain Diego, Vitto and all the crew were fantastic, made us feel so welcome. Scenery is stunning, expecially the lagoon on the island where you can swim in crystal clear waters. Lots of fun jumping off the boat into the ocean where you can snorkel, there are also paddle boards and kayak... followed by delicious seafood paella. Then the scenic route beck to Corralejo via the north of the island to get a closer look at the volcano. I really couldn't recommend this trip enough. Our only regret was that 4 hours goes by so quickly, I could do this all day!

This was a wonderful excursion. We literally got everything (insane views, guided tour, beautiful boat cruise and water sports) in one booking. The fantastic crew were a big bonus!

The trip exceeded my expectations and my family and I had an amazing time !!!!
