Went on one of this companies whale and dolphin spotting two hour cruises. We saw whales and two types of dolphin up close and in the wild which was a truly memorable experience. Would thoroughly recommend doing this if visiting Tenerife and at 20 Euros per adult was well worth the money.

Scott sold us tickets on the quayside...very friendly. The trip was great we came across possibly 50 or 60 dolphins passing the boat , jumping out of the water and generally being brilliant. We then saw quite a few whales which were equally great , for a 2 hour trip we thought it was good value for money.

Having tried over the years the other companies offering similar trips this was the best experience ever. The crew were informative and very knowledgeable indeed. They have a way of getting very close to the whales and dolphins without scaring them.

Well-organised we managed to see both dolphins and whales! Only the same few. They were not that close and difficult to photograph/video as would disappear quickly and then only re-emerge in a different place on the other side of the boat after some time. It was therefore difficult to predict exactly where they would be next. However it was glorious... More

Samantha invited us on and we declined at first because it cost 20E each, but then we went for it and it was a very worthwhile two hour trip. We soon watched bottle nosed dolphins with a 'fish ball' then dozens of Speckled dolphins cavorting in style, and last but nor least short finned pilot whales, including close up observation...

I was on a whale watch with my friend on a big boat of theirs with Tenerife's first female captain Samatha, who I send my best wishes to even this way! :) We were very satisfied with the trip we were lucky enough to encounter some dolphins for a short time and had the chance to observe whales for longer...

We went out for a boat trip. We saw both Dolphins and Whales. This was an excellent trip. The salesman wasn't pushy. The crew were excellent especially when dealing with our daughter who had some sea sickness. To see dolphins in the wild was something as a family we will never forget. Highly recommended and excellent value for money.

We went out on the Bahriyeli boat, we were told if we didn't see anything then we could go back on another day free. We weren't disappointed, it was a two hour trip we saw Whales and Dolphins. The crew were fantastic and willing to answer any questions. I will definitely be going out again on my next visit to... More

We had a terrific trip. The boat was on old fishing boat, with lots of deck space making it easy to move about and watch the wildlife from all sides of the boat. We saw lots of whales which came close to the boat, with great photo opportunities. The guide explained all about how the creatures lived. We also saw... More
