We booked this via our Thomson rep at our hotel. Whilst we had to queue to get on the catamaran it was certainly worth it once onboard everything was brilliant. We set sail and the bar was opened for free drinks and the seach for whales and dolphins commenced. The views of the coast of Tenerife were breathtaking and nothing... More

Your chances of seeing the dolphins and whales was far more limited and extremely uncomfortable. After a very short time we moved off... More

We got informed when the shuttle, which was organized for picking us up, arrived and were assured a full refund. The refund was transfered back 3 working days later. It was a pity not... More

This is a really well run, professional catamaran trip. We saw dolphins and whales, the catamaran wasn't overly crowded and the staff were really helpful, especially the lady on the coach there. Really good value for money, would do it again.
