6 jeep at full throttle towards Cofete. The chief-guide Mikelele, the best, took us on the 4-hour tour. 60 euros for a good morning. Super cool Discovery. It is the best option we made since it is complicated with a car and the insurance does not cover rental cars if you have a mishap. The worst thing is that you want to blow your whistle, but we already knew that. Too bad we didn't visit the Winter house.

Great morning out. 45 minutes to Lobos, where you then moor for a few hours. You can spend an hour on the island, or just chill on the boat and snorkel/swim/float about for a few hours. Paella lunch and unlimited drinks. Nice vibe. I had to chase up pick-up details the night before (and wasn’t even on the passenger itinerary on the day of the trip, so glad I did!) but other than that it was all good.

From the booking to the return transfer everything was perfect. The tour was entertaining and fun. Our tour guide was great. Only the shark present can do something for the fact that we couldn't see any dolphins. The speedboat ride alone was worth the experience and who knows, if we come back and do the tour, we'll see dolphins. Thank you for this great experience.

The tour was great fun. We had a nice guide. The introductory video could have been tightened up a bit, otherwise everything was fine. Also easily feasible for less fit people.

Everything went great from start to finish. Everyone was very friendly and it was a lot of fun.
