What people are saying about Santa Cruz de Tenerife

The whole thing is set up professionally, we were 4 couples who rode the jet skis in pairs, there was a short instruction in English, which is really very easy to understand, in advance. Pictures may only be taken with the GOPRo in the holders provided for this purpose and holders you have brought with you. However, pictures will be taken of everyone, and also a short video, which can be purchased at the end with a cool drink of your choice. 20€ if you want everything. I really enjoyed the ride, the jet skis are well maintained and run great. The guide and all the staff are super nice. I can only recommend the tour to everyone. We took the 2 hour tour first thing in the morning at 9:15. Don't be afraid of falling from jet skis far out at sea. In the middle of the tour there will be a break for swimming and snorkeling experience. The guide drives a boat ahead all the time. How fast you can go depends heavily on the sea state.

Very cool tour! The sea was very choppy with high waves. It was difficult to keep the course at the beginning, but once you get the hang of it - pure fun with nice jumps over the waves. The jet skis have a lot of power, equipment such as swimming goggles (absolutely necessary in rough seas) was included and the guide was very attentive. The guide makes videos and photos, which can then be purchased for €10. After the fun there was a Beer for Free to counteract the salty taste in the mouth.

We had a wonderful time. Great instructor. Equipment and facilities were excellent. Location was great. Free street parking. The activity was different than description however: total of 3 hours (not 6 as I saw listed). We had a short introductory lesson on land, then two dives with a short break in between, then we showered, dressed, and got a cold drink. Overall great experience

We've decided to try diving for the first time and we couldn't choose a better company for that! Clear instructions, good quality equipment, nice and clean facilities. The introductory diving consists of two dives, which allows you to have a full underwater experience. Highly recommended!

Good fun one hour was enough as the sea was very rough but jet sky are quite nice!
