What people are saying about Puerto Colón

Absolutely brilliant, prompt pickup in a nice vehicle, short drive to the dock. The staff were incredibly tentative and spoke great English (if that’s important to you). We got to see dolphins and whales which they pointed out and supplied some snorkelling gear to swim with the fish in a nice bay. The food was simple but tasty and more than enough for everyone, similarly with the drinks there was a good selection and no shortage of service. There is a small toilet on the boat if you want to get changed as well. I would bear in mind the heat and sun as while there is an interior seating area it can be understandable hot on a hot day even in the shade. In fact the sea breeze felt much cooler than sitting in the shade so just pack some good sunscreen! Thank you to the crew of the Monte Cristo for a great day out!

What a great experience, topping off our honeymoon with actual sightings of Bottlenose Dolphins and Pilot Whales swimming and playing around our Catamaran. The crew were fantastic, polite, informative and really good guys. The buffet provided was just enough with drinks throughout the trip. Snorkelling in a local bay was fun too. These guys know what they are doing and cannot recommend enough. Thank you Darren & Rachel

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

Amazing trip! We saw dolphins and pilot whales. The staff were very knowledgeable and very friendly.

Fabulous trip. Saw pilot whales and the stop for a swim was just perfect.
