What people are saying about Costa Adeje

Probably because of the weather we were the only ones going on the tour. They were very kind and told us of all the species we could see. We saw dolphins, whales and even a turtle from upclose! Also they answered all of our questions and gave some recommendations to sightsee on the island. There were refreshments on the boat. We loved the tour and hope to do it again another time. Thanks to you both it was amazing!

This was fantastic. Done this with my 2 kids who loves the whole thing! We seen plenty of whales too. I would totally recommend using these guys are their knowledge was great. They were even explaining to the kids the different types of whales we seen and pointed them in the direction to look.
