It was unexpectedly beautiful. We had already booked a few boat trips through GetYourGuide. This was by far the best. The crew was super friendly and accommodating. There were actually dolphins to be seen. It was all very uncomplicated and a great experience.

It's worth seeing, the giraffes are beautiful - you can feed and pet them, we chose a camel ride - an unforgettable experience. We used the free bus that takes you from the hotel.

We had a great tour, saw pilot whales, dolphins and a turtle. The crew was super fond of children, it was a great experience for young and old.

We were able to watch whales and dolphins. I enjoyed lunch. The crew was great!

Brilliant Park. A must do if you’re in Fuerteventura!!
