Fantastic time
Simon_P, Jan 2022
Our skipper Fargo was great and very knowledgeable. It was amazing to see pilot whales and the dolphins jumping. The best day of our holiday.

Capitan needs urgent replacement
Fer_U, Jan 2022
The experience itself is ok…. You get to see some Pilot Whales, and a nice sunset from a little sailing boat. However, experience could be significantly improved if the captain was more into providing a decent service. No words, no smiles, bad gestures when someone approached him. He felt annoyed when someone asked for a beer, I was scared to ask myself. The whole group was in silence, looking forward to the end to leave that boat asap.

Fantastic experience, less plastic cups would be highly appreciated
Kwan_P, Dec 2021
We had an awesome day and the calm waters during our tour was a plus. There were other 2 couples on board and the boat didn't feel cramped at all. We saw 5 pilot whales and a baby sea turtle. The experience was special, however I would have been more appreciated it if drinks were not served in single use plastic cups. The refreshments were tuna and ham sandwiches, chippies and some crackers The skipper could have been more attentive, and also he got the drink orders wrong a couple of times. Anywho....it was such a fab day and seeing the whales upclose was really memorable.

Well worth it
Leah_G, Nov 2021
I searched long and hard for a worth while whale watching excursion and I can confirm that this is the one!! We had an intimate experience (5 of us total) with our captain Patrick who was very friendly and knowledgeable, and managed to spot several pilot whales and got us quite close to a couple dolphins. The whole experience was amazing, and we even got to stop and swim in a cove where he pointed out more fish to us. We then ate homemade and delicious sandwiches and light snacks with plenty of drinks. I was even pleased to see that some of the negative comments about prior excursions had been improved upon (I.e. one review referred to uncomfortable seating and our experience was complete with cushioned seats that were quite comfortable). At this price it’s a steal, and a great way to spend the afternoon. I highly recommend!
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Thank you for the detailed and lovely review. We look forward to welcoming you on board next time!
Good value trip but take something soft to sit on
susie_W, Nov 2021
Overall, this was an enjoyable excursion to see dolphins, a whale and a turtle. The boat was clean and well maintained. But as well as advising us to bring sunscreen and swimwear, we should have taken padded cushions as this was probably the most uncomfortable boat trip I’ve ever been on. Three hours sitting on a hard plastic deck with no space to move around. Plenty of drinks on board but if you don’t eat meat, take your own snack as the promised vegetarian sandwich never appeared.

Thank you for your review. We would love to get a more detailed feedback so as we can put it right for the future. Please send us an email at info@tenerifefirstexcursions.com
