What people are saying about Maspalomas

The boat cruise was fantastic, he moves a little, his thing is not to have much breakfast so you don't get dizzy, the crew on board, captain and sailors super friendly and very dedicated to the mission of seeing dolphins, very attentive with people, very aware at all times of all the staff on board. Very competent and very responsible and nice staff It is worth the boat ride and the dolphins ... all beautiful I would repeat with this company without hesitation

It was very interesting to see the dolphins in their own "home". I can only recommend it, definitely not for seasick people, we had a sick bay on board

was very nice we could see dolphins It is important to know that the boat shakes a lot (if you are seasick).

Very small park comparable to a city hustle and bustle. But all employees are very nice

I really liked the experience and my little son also very nice everything
