The overall experience of the trip was excellent. Our original trip date was cancelled due to bad weather conditions, but I was contacted well before the trip to reschedule the trip to another day. I was contacted by phone but wasn't able to answer but they left a message to my voice mail and I did the rescheduling through email and also ensured the pickup location later by email. Each time the answer was fast and new ticket was also delivered swiftly. The guide was nice and professional and the pickup was handled well and on time. They were also kind to drop us to our hotel after the trip because we had to walk a bit from our hotel to the pickup location. The trip went well even though we didn't see any dolphins. They had drinks for adults and soda for the kids as well and the kids enjoyed being at the front of the catamaran and swinging along the waves. There were also snacks (more than I thought!) that were quite tasty. Crew members were also very helpful and nice! Can recommend!

Had a fantastic day today with the the team at Atlantis Dive Centre, Lanzarote. Our instructor Graizka was very patient and the ultimate professional with my son Matthew (aged 10 ) and myself aged 60:) . I never thought diving would be so much fun and cannot wait until the next opportunity.We felt 100% safe at all times and would highly recommend booking your diving experience with Atlantis Lanzarote
