What people are saying about Costa Adeje

We had a wonderful catamaran trip with White Tenerife. Lots of close sightings of dolphins, whales and turtles! The crew were great, making sure everybody had plenty of drinks and offering assistance to help people down the steep ladder to the toilets. Overall a brilliant day and well worth the price! Will be booking again on my next holiday to Tenerife :)

A very complete boat ride, seeing the whales is impressive how close they are, cool drinks throughout the ride, and a plate of paella with salad. The paella is good to serve on the boat after a good time, it's not bad, but in general it's pretty good value for money in general

The team was very nice and fun. You know that they love there job and know what they are doing. We got lucky and saw alot of animals. I would totally go again.

Such a great experience, didn’t see any turtles but the dive was amazing, all the dive instructors were brilliant

Everything perfect! Great tour with almost 100% certainty of seeing dolphins and whales up close.
