What people are saying about Santa Cruz de Tenerife

the guy who supported us during the experience was really nice and super helpful. if you stay in the south of the island it is definitely an experience to try. it is displaced with respect to the other experiences that the island offers you but precisely because there is little confusion it is to be appreciated more.

My daughters loved it, the person in charge of accompanying them was very nice and gave clear explanations. It's a small club right on the port that deserves to be known, they had tried other very touristy clubs or they had been disappointed by the organization for tourists

Unbelievable! Great experience, no more than 10, a privileged moment. In good company, both are passionate and were as amazed as we saw whales, calderons or dolphins.

really nice experience. we saw pilot whales and dolphins. the staff are super friendly!

The team was amazing Really helpful The tour was really good. I highly recommend it.
