Full description
Your adventure will begin in the morning when the ocean is still very calm. Begin with kayaking instructions and all the safety measures needed for a great time on the sea. At this hour of the morning, enjoy the relaxing atmosphere as you get into the kayak on the empty beach of Playa de Los Cristianos.   Start paddling along the harbor, exiting into the open sea followed by seagulls for around 30 minutes to get out to where the dolphins pass by. You can enjoy a great time watching the dolphins playing around and sometimes doing a really wild show.   After around 1 hour, we will paddle away gently, trying as much possible not to disrupt the dolphins’ morning routine. This will be an adventure you will always remember.

We made the 8:30 exit. We left at 7 with 4 kayaks, guide included. How lucky because in the morning the sea is calm, so it is "easier" to spot the fins. No sooner had we set sail than our guide spotted fins: we found a group of dolphins advancing in front of us! We saw them twice with the joy of discovering a dolphin. Further, we meet a first turtle. During our snorkeling stop, we had the chance to swim with a turtle that was playing with a fishbone. The guide was very nice: informative and above all full of humor. PS: a word of advice, I know it's tempting to pull out your phone to take pictures or videos, but the moment you see the dolphins is quite stealthy. By unsheathing your phone, you risk not having time to enjoy the show with your own eyes.

Great experience with Dani who will accompany you throughout this adventure. A hell of a character full of energy, anecdotes and attention who will inform and guide you with a good dose of humor and repartee. The gentleman speaks 5 languages on top of that! We were a small group, ideal for discussing and moving forward quietly. The view and the ride was great. But what was most impressive was seeing a turtle swimming a few meters from us. This moment is just a little spoiled by the crowd of tourists, of which we were obviously part. Luckily, it is possible to see dolphins, it is not recurrent but it is possible! Thanks again to Dani, we had a great time!

The guide was wonderful and we did see what we went to see. we got lucky that the dolphins and turtles were about today. But if you think there's even the slightest chance you might get sea sick, take the tablets as advised on the site. Also, be prepared for hard work. It's not as easy as you think haha. I enjoyed myself a lot today.
