What people are saying about Lanzarote

A really enjoyable trip that we thought was excellent value for money. Crew were great and very helpful. They sailed us near to Papagayo Beach where we had 3 hours to relax in the sun, take their paddleboard and kayak out on the sea, jump in and swim around, and they've also got lots of snorkelling equipment (so no need to take your own). The BBQ was amazing too, we weren't expecting much but there was lots of food and it all tasted great. Best activity we did all holiday and will definitely recommend to others.

We brought my 14 year old daughter and her cousin of the same age on this boat trip around. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. Diving off the boat whilst moored 20 metres away from one of the many beaches around Paraguaya. Water was beautiful, girls did paddle boarding and kayaking. Snorkeling was also available. Barbecue on the boat and a sangria or 2. 4.5 hours of bliss. We would all definitely do it again, recommend

Great activity, in a small group we were able to try to see dolphins even if they had to hide that day! Then discovery of the beach of papagayo and small dive to be able to admire the seabed. I recommend this activity for all travelers who love beautiful landscapes and a bit of adrenaline!

amazing day start to finish, I emailed a few days before and asked if they can cater for a vegan lunch. I was stocked how much an effort they made!! was the best lunch I had in Lanzarote.

We had the best day, the guys we’re lovely and made us feel relaxed and chilled on our holiday
