    Perfekt war dass wir nur 16 Personen waren . Gerade in Coronazeiten. Das Personal sehr freundlich und servicebereit. Alles sauber und coronakonform Nur das Premium Buffet war ein Schälchen aus Plastik mit kalten Mojokartoffeln , ein paar Stücken kaltem Hühnchen und Nudelsalat. Das hätte man schoener anrichten koennen mit mehr Geschmack. Dafür wurde auch ein gewisser Betrag berechnet. Denke ich?

    Una experiencia recomendable ya que pudimos ver los delfines (en el último momento) y además el guía fue muy divertido. Sin embargo, considero que la actividad es demasiado larga, duró 2h 45 minutos. En mi opinión y la de mi pareja con 2h es más que suficiente. De igual modo, pensamos que 30€/persona es caro.

    This was amazing from start to finish. I was the only one who booked to go that day so I had both instructors to myself. I got a message the night before confirming what time they would collect me from my hotel. This was my first time snorkeling and the instructors were very patient and took everything at the pace I wanted to go. We were in the water around 45-50 minutes and they were really informative, constantly pointing out things to look for and explaining the names of all the sea life we saw. The price also includes door to door pick up and drop off back to your hotel, which is perfect.

What people are saying about Gran Canaria

Overall rating

4.7 / 5

based on 38 reviews

The tour is not for couch heroes. Climbing, jumping cliffs, swimming, abseiling and exploring caves are physically very demanding (basic fitness should be available). Miguel is a very personable, funny and helpful guide with a very good knowledge of English. He always explains everything in great detail and you feel safe throughout. I really liked the tour because it covers so many activities. There was no time pressure and passages that seemed too hard could be skipped. I would recommend the tour to anyone. Asks Miguel, the guy is just awesome.

We did not use the transport, so I cannot give a rating on this. Basically, of course, the whole thing is very dependent on the actually existing waves. We were lucky so we had great fun too and would definitely recommend it. Just don't expect to be able to surf properly after the one-day course. For us it worked to a certain extent at the end of the 2nd day (booked separately on site).

I went with my partner and friends and from the beginning all the staff majisim @! We had a great time and enjoyed everything and more! The best: the second part hahaha

It was a very nice catamaran tour. The staff on the ship were very nice and took good care of their guests. Every guest could experience something.

Very cool spot and also the instructor is really nice
