- A fantastic trip, saw Brydes whales and pilot whales. Crew were helpful and informative. Vegetarian paella and drinks included. Perfect excursion...would definitely recommend!Written 26 January 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We booked the excursion using WhatsApp and everything was super easy! When we arrived at the harbor we met the Carmen the captain and our guide. He explained all kind of animals we could possibly see. We finally saw some dolphins and I really enjoyed the way we approached them. The captain was making sure not to bother them too much and leaving them the space to move around (unfortunately not like other boats we saw). We had a nice music to entertain the animals which was also very nice for us. Finally we went for a swim on a discreet beach accessible only by boat. I would 100% recommend the company for animal sightseeing as they really care about them! Loved it!Written 18 September 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Good day whale watching/on a boat excursion. The boat was very crowded - we got there early so that we had a brilliant spot but lots of people were quite close together (get there early!) Took us to a lovely spot to swim and lots of lovely local bruschetta-type breads with fresh toppings. Drinks were very well priced too.Written 15 February 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We did three days of walking with this company. (Thursday, Friday and Saturday). Loved them all,. Would totally recommend them, great guide, great transport, fabulous views. We only speak English and the guide translated everything for us, the groups were very friendly. The guide took time to answer questions about the walk and the area, took time to show an interest in everyone in the group (which is a great skill). Walking in parts is at your own speed which was great for us as we take lots of photos.Written 3 February 2019
- Excellent 3 hour trip from Vueltas harbour. Saw a pod of over 20 pilot whales, which was very exciting. Trip a very reasonable E30 per person including a drink and snack. The booking conditions said that if we didn't see anything then we could have another trip free. Lady guide very informative.
The captain's customer skills were lacking to a quite hilarious degree as he barked out orders to us all and generally strutted around, drunk on his own sense of importance. Startling at first, but it became part of the entertainment, not that he was at all aware.Written 24 January 2022
- We had an excellent day. A group of seven including my wife Susanne and our three boys and two girlfriends and myself. Some of us were beginners on mountainbike. Our guide Jesús mad a terrific job. Nice trip with marvellous nature and a challenge that we all fixed.
Prior to the trip we had a bike try out and the gear and everything was high quality apart from a pedal that had to be fixed twice on one of the bikes.
We had a mix of ages in our group (17-55 years old). We are all reasonably fit and active people.
Thankyou Jesús for an wonderful day. The best day on the whole vacation!Written 8 January 2017
- Super team, super boat. Super Dophins, snorkling and food. Wind quite good, landscape and hospitality! Will do this trip again! Greetings from Hamburg!Written 19 October 2018
- We looked a place where we could rent a bike suring our stay. We wrote a mail but we got no response. They were on holiday during that time. When we arrived to La Gomera we learned the owner had an accident and he could not ride on that week when we were here. Although we got a description how to make the trip. The owner pf the ahop is really friendly and helpful...Written 28 June 2015
- Now the fourth tour we made with Axel. Always great and tour customised to fit the group dynamics.
Highly recommended!Written 7 March 2019
- Friday 22nd October and we walked along the promenade from Playa de la Calera to the Port, a distance of just over two kilometres roughly a thirty minute walk.
Playa de Vueltas is on both sides of the Port. Also within the Port walls there is a marina. This had a large number of vessels moored up, a mixture of all shapes and sizes. This included fishing boats and crafts used for a variety of boat tours.
Along the walls of the Port there are a number of kiosks selling boat tours including whole watching tours.
There was a slipway that had a number of small brightly painted coloured boads, in dry dock, being repaired or decorated.
There is a restaurant/bar, Bar Cofradia de Pescadores within the Port area.
We walked to the very end of the Pier where there was a narrow, rather worn, navigation beacon, not much but a good photo opportunity.
From here the Fred Olsen Express Ferry sails to San Sebastian de la Gomera with up to 21 crossings per week. The sailing time is about one hour and ten minutes.Written 29 November 2021
- This mighty bronze statue is situated on the seafront in La Puntilla.
It honours Hautacuperche who is deemed to be a hero because in 1488 he led the rebellion of the Cameros.
The statue stands on a basic square concrete plinth with Hautacuperche carved across the front. It depicts Hautacuperche dressed in a loincloth with a knife in one hand and perhaps an opened shellfish in the other, unsure.
The is a small plaque nearby containing information about the statue.
The statue looks even more impressive in the evening as the sun sets behind it.
The statue was unveiled in 2007.Written 14 October 2021
- Thursday 14th October and we visited Mirador de la Curva del Queso (Mirador of the Curve of the Cheese).It is located on a large bend in the road GM-1 in between the Túnel de Yorima and Túnel de Arure.
Located at the Viewpoint is the unusual structure of the Curved Cheese Sculpture. It comprises of eleven posts, of different lengths which form a semicircle that are linked by four strands of wire.
Due to the height of the sculpture it does stick out and is visible from a far. It is actually visible from the promenade in Playa la Calera
At the base of the sculpture there is a semi circular, amphitheatre style steps, where visitors can sit and enjoy the views.
Everything here is curved, the viewing platform, the amphitheatre seating and the sculpture.Written 6 November 2021
