Full description

Spot dolphins, whales, and other sea mammals in their natural habitat on this catamaran cruise along Fuerteventura’s southern coast. Enjoy swimming and snorkeling with the gear provided. Relax onboard with some tapas and a drink. 

Start with a visit to the harbor to marvel at the beautiful manta rays that live here and watch this beautiful creature swimming along the bottom of the sea floor. After the manta ray viewing, it's time to hop on board your sailing boat for the day for a short briefing of the day’s itinerary.

Then it’s time to set sail and leave the harbor. Heading out towards the open seas the captain will bring up the sails and turn off the engine.

Listen to the radio communications from local fishermen and listen out for sightings of marine wildlife, including dolphins and whales. If they’re in the area, the captain will sail the boat towards them for the chance to take some photos and admire these elegant creatures up close.

During the rest of the sail, enjoy the stunning sea views that surround you and soak up the glorious Fuerteventura sunshine.

After about 2 hours of sailing, your captain will drop anchor, giving you some time to go swimming and snorkeling in the shimmering blue waters. After your swim, enjoy a selection of tapas made from local recipes and relax with a drink as you sail back to shore.

Der Trip hat großen Spaß gemacht. Das Boot ist groß und hervorragend in Schuss. Nach dem Ablegen, sind wir geradewegs zu einem Grüppchen anderen Booten gefahren, die bereits Delfine gesichtet hatten. Wir hatten großes Glück und haben eine riesige Delfinschule beobachten können. Danach ging mit Windkraft weiter ca. 1h. Ich hätte mir gewünscht, ein wenig weiter die Küste hinaufzufahren, wir waren zu jederzeit in Sichtweite des Hafens. Auch die Schwimm/Schnorchel Gelegenheit war direkt vor der Kaimauer, an einer Stelle, die man auch vom Strand aus gut erreicht hätte. Das fühlte sich etwas lieblos an. Abgesehen davon hat alles hervorragend geklappt und großen Spaß gemacht.

Fab day from start to finish. Jose met us at the harbour with 6 others. The boat was beautiful & so clean. Items (bags, shoes etc) are left downstairs in the living quarters and the fun is had on deck. Jose explained the day to us all & then sailed in style. Jose told us where to look for the dolphins & whales, explaining how all the boats out at sea communicate with each other should any be spotted. We stopped near the bay to swim in the sea / sunbathe on deck then delicious tapas were served - all tastes were catered for - veggies & meat eaters. There were drinks (alcoholic/non-alcoholic) a plenty throughout the day, either help yourself or Jose served. Amazing experience, we will definitely book again (directly with Flounders). Note: we were told to meet outside the Restaurant Cofradia so we paid for a taxi there. However, Jose had collected the others from their hotels, one being next to ours! Check with the guide/Skipper in advance. Jose drove us back - thank you.

I did this excursion with my boyfriend on my birthday. We had great weather and were able to see the rays in the harbor from the jetty. It was great that we were only 10 people in total. We were able to take drinks throughout the trip. We saw many dolphins who had a lot of fun "driving" or swimming with us for 15 minutes. Later we made a swimming stop. Unfortunately, although the water is clear, the visibility is not so good, so snorkeling is not worthwhile. We returned to the port in the dark and enjoyed a super beautiful sunset. We ate small snacks on the way back to the port. Everyone was very nice and the skipper managed everything by himself and entertained us. The transfer there and back is also included.
