Friends and family are also welcome to come along to spend a day on the beach while you explore the sea life of Tenerife. More experienced snorkelers are welcome as well.

    We choose this company as we travelled as a family ( 2 young children ) and my mother ( 63 years old), and this was an activity that we could all enjoy as a family, as the youngest and eldest of our group didn't participate in the actual activity, but waited for us on the beach. We all enjoyed it, I think it was a nice taster session for my sister and brother-in-law, who never snorkelled before. The actual snorkelling was a bout 45 minutes long the rest of the time was about a short orientation , explaining what to expect how to use the snorkelling gear and getting actually geared up. We saw lots of colourful fish. we felt safe and secure all the time, our guide regularly checked up on us and pointed out the different fish. I booked it on Dutch language to benefit my niece, so the English version of the explanation was rather short, so make sure to book the right language - the guides all spoke good English.
