We could not recommend this tour company more highly. Veny, our tour advisor, was friendly and very informative and nothing was too much trouble for him. We booked 2 tours through him during November and found both to be excellent. The first one was going down to the ocean bed in a Submarine, where we were fortunate enough to see... More

We took the 5 hour tour and booked directly on their website because it is cheaper than any hotel agent. This is one of the routine tourist attractions. They take a photo when boarding the ship to sell it later in the afternoon. The course is always the same, pilot whales, bottlenose dolphins, Los Gigantes, Masca Bay, sunset with La... More

The pickup bus was 20 minutes late. We were forced to have a photo taken while boarding. The boat was very crowded which didn't lend to a pleasant trip for younger children. We got to see some pilot whales up close.

The guide was amazing and saw much of the marine life! The top deck was the best place to see it all, the glass bottom area was usually crowded and awkwardly placed, but stunning sights from the top deck. Pleasantly surprised by the food and drinks provided aboard, well worth the trip!

I feel this trip is given a misleading title. True, the 4 and a half hour trip gave us opportunities to see dolphins, orcas and flying fish, which was really great. BUT the boat is not a glass-bottomed boat as one may expect it. There are 2 viewing areas each with small sloping windows on the lowest deck, but as... More

Unfortunately I didn`t wear enough suncream and got sunburnt even after being warned to wear at least factor 30 minimum!!!Up... More

Had and awesome time. Endless drinks and lunch and snack provided. On the way to Los Gigantes cliffs we saw dolphins playing with the bow of the boat. Then we swam below the cliffs, breathtaking! The pilot whales were awesome and we also saw them from the glass bottom of the boat. Never seen whales from below the water line!... More

Excellent trip. We did the 4.5 hour trip to Masca. We've done the 3 hour trip a few years ago but well worth paying a bit extra to see Masca. Breathtaking views! Saw Dolphins and Whales, food was fine, as much to drink as we wanted. Yes as mentioned some people were sea sick, can't blame that on the boat.... More

We visited the Delfin mid August having seen the advert and information through our travel rep. We opted for the Delfin as it offered the underwater views which we felt was an added bonus. We arrived at the designated pick up point of the best tenerife hotel. The pick up point is manic as it's where trips to several other... More
