Didnt see dolphins in the 1.5hrs, you needed to go further out to sea, i think but the speedboat was very enjoyable , excellent comfortable seats ,which many boats aren't, clean boat and friendly staff.Still worth going on even though no dolphins to be seen. I would recommend

Trip was very good, unfortunately didn’t see any dolphins or whales etc, the captain and team were all very good, entertainment was great and captain spoke various languages to accommodate everyone. Should definitely be a part of your Fuerteventura experience.

We first drove through the water for about 30 minutes, then further into the ocean. Here we saw about 20-25 dolphin-like whales swimming on the surface. The distance to the beautiful animals was a maximum of 10 meters.

Lovely relaxing boat ride. Has a toilet aboard and the host gave unlimited beer, water or Pepsi. Host and captain were very nice

Great experience, the boat trip alone was great…. And finally saw some dolphins...super cool guide
