What people are saying about Santa Cruz de Tenerife

What a great trip, Joel was super cool guy. Great with my family, taking time to chat with my youngest and sat with my 13 year old who didn’t want to snorkel. We had lovely trip, good stories and facts from Joel and even better we saw dolphins and swam with 2 turtles!!! Amazing, everyone loved the day, highly recommend!

Joel was a very good safari guide, talked us through everything we needed to know before we started. Made sure we were comfortable before we headed off. Luckily we were able to see the dolphins and also got to snorkel with turtles, would highly recommend.

I completely recommend this activity. Seeing a turtle was amazing. Also Silvio the guide was really friendly.

Guide told fun facts about the island. Dolphins seen up close. Then you can snorkel with turtles. Fantastic!

Joey was really nice. Got to see some dolphins up close.
