I booked only 48 hours beforehand for my birthday whilst in Gran Canaria. Very easy to book & excellent communication. We were picked up and dropped off as advised which allowed us not to worry about drinking and driving! Excellent customer service from all members of staff and once on the boat it was up to you whether you wanted to do other events, or like myself, just sit and enjoy the journey. Sangria, beer & soft drinks, along with lunch, were included in the package I purchased. An additional excellent bar & cocktails were available. My favourite, pina colada with a twist was "the best". Not your usual, and with a beautiful italian cherry on top! We ate, drank and were very merry & I would not hesitate to recommend or even do again.

It was great! We were there early in the morning, so not many people were there yet. We saw many different fish, sea urchins, starfish. Simply wonderful, would do it again and again and can only recommend it. There were only two of us snorkeling and we had our guide to ourselves. She was super nice and motivated. She knew a lot about the fish.

Great day , food was nice & plenty of drink to go round . The beds are only available for those who pay a premium rate though. Still enjoyed the day . Staff are excellent and the music nice & chilled

All very pretty good, had an unforgettable day, but what we liked best was Natalia. A really happy and nice employee who spread the good vibes on the catamaran.

Such a well structured day! I think the adults enjoyed it as much as the kids Would definitely recommend & would love to return again one day.
