Sailing by catamaran, you will also pass by some fish-farms, where the clever dolphins are often looking for an easy meal. The crew are very knowledgeable about all the whales and Tenerife's other marine life. As you sail, you will also learn about the huge squids that can grow up to 40 feet (12 meters) in length, and live at depths of up to 2,600 feet (800 meters) between Tenerife and La Gomera.

    Really nice day out, sandwiches and unlimited drinks alcoholic/non alcoholic. Saw lots of whales and they gave enough time for photos. Snorkelling was amazing too we saw loads of fish. Only downfall was the lack of a card machine for paying for the photos they take of you they only accept cash

We saw a lot of whales and dolphins. The crew was very nice and helpful and what's more important the ship wasn't overcrowed so we can changed place to sit a lot of times. Everything was great, I recomended this cruise.

It was relaxing and fun at the same time, it is true that on this trip we only saw the animals from afar, but that is being lucky. Super friendly staff, I would definitely repeat.

Good price-value ratio. We’ve seen dolphins, whales as close as it is possible. The drink and food was OK. We had a nice company, but the staff could’ve been friendlier.

The guys on the boat did a very good job. Service is paramount here. We actually saw whales. The bay we swam in was gorgeous. Lovely again

Very good Tour and very very high Chance to see some Dolphins/Whales!
