Very well organised....
, Oct 2021
Very well organised. Guide was professional and reassuring. Had an oops on the stairs getting back in the boat, was helped by a calm and confident guide. Didn’t see any turtles but we were briefed at the start that this was a possibility…. Did see sting rays and dolphins which was amazing! Would recommend as a must do for your holiday. Tip: please listen to instructors, must be a confident swimmer.
Forgotten and almost drowned! DANGEROUS COMPANY!
, Sep 2021
I went on the Turtle snorkel with this company on September 6, 2021, and was left behind and almost drowned. I decided to go with this company, because I was going by myself for this excursion and thought the small group size sounded safe. They claim it is small group with maximum 10 people, and on the boat ride over there were two boats with 10 people, once in the water they combine the groups for a total of 18 (2 people on my boat were going diving). They give you your equipment but don’t really tell you much on the way out. The boat I was on, left with the divers, the guy who was originally in the water with us apparently left with the diver boat (according to the owner when I called). When I first jumped in I must have looked unsteady because the guy offered me his arm and said I could steady myself by holding on, I told him, “I think I’m fine now, I just can’t hold my breath long and am not a great swimmer,” he replied, “oh, don’t worry that’s all right.” I was following him closely as I stated not a great swimmer, but then he told our group we need to join the other group (who were already swimming off). I put my head down and started following fins, I felt like I was trying to race to keep up, the fins slowly turned to just bubbles then to nothing. I looked up and the group was pretty far, but I thought well if they stop to swim around a spot maybe I can catch up… this was how I spent most of the time I was in the water, me picking my head up and trying to race to catch up. Finally, I was getting really tired, the group was really far away and I realized there was no way I was catching up to them. Even looking at the other snorkelers from a distance I didn’t see any of the company’s boats. I waved my arms at the other snorkelers and screamed, “I'M HERE! WAIT! PLEASE HELP! PLEASE HELP!” I did this for several minutes and not one heard or even noticed me. At this point I thought I was going to die, there was no one around me, I frantically looked in all directions for help, I was breathing so heavy at this point and the waves felt heavy, my head went under and I swallowed a bunch of water. I realized I was in complete PANIC and I needed to calm myself or I was going to DROWN. I spent several minutes trying to control my breathing and searched for any sign of hope. We were by a cliff, there was no trying to get close to shore. Then I realized no one was going to help me, I needed to get out of this situation and save myself or drown, there were 3 boats in total I saw, one with lots of people on it, and was driving away from me, then 2 boats close to one another that weren’t moving, 1 of those boats had a person sitting on it, it was my only chance for help. The boat was far, I was already exhausted, it had to have been over 2 miles away, I spent several minutes swimming toward it, while stopping in between to catch my breath. When I finally made it to the boat I told the guy, "my group left me, I’m panicked", as I grabbed hold of his boat. He asked, “what company are you with?” I couldn’t remember I was still panicked and in shock, and it was that moment I realized they never even introduced themselves, I didn’t even know the people’s names. I kept saying, “I don’t know, I don’t know” finally he asked. “was the guy in a conga speedo?’ I thought yes, the guy that took the other boat out was in a tarzan looking speedo, which I remembered because I had never seen a speedo of that style. He then looked around and had to call them over (at no time did they even notice I was missing). When they picked me up the first thing I said was, "I was left behind, I’m in a panic” and he said, “no, no you’re fine.” No concern, no empathy, just get in, sit down and shut up kind of attitude. To give you an idea of how long this all took, it’s a 3 hour experience, we picked up the other people and headed back to shore within about 20 minutes, I would have been struggling for over an hour (accounting for driving time to and from). I spent the whole boat ride back shaking, in complete shock holding back tears trying not to fall apart, I had thought I was going to die. I haven’t been able to sleep, I keep playing it over and over again in my head. No one was concerned or even cared that I was shaking and in shock, no one cared that I almost drowned. I got my things in a haze and left, finally only breaking down when I called my husband and heard his voice. My husband called the company, and spoke to the owner who told him I was lying. The people who took us out, didn’t even tell her they had to pick me up from another boat. They spoke a couple of times, and finally out of frustration I called to speak to the owner because I wanted an apology, I wanted them to look at their practices to ensure this never happens to another person again, but that is what a good company would do and this is not a good company. The owner in an attempt to both infantilize and insult not only me but all their clients also inadvertently admitted they can’t keep track of the people they take out and said, “you are all like children and go off, they can’t keep track of everyone”. The only apology I got was, “sorry you feel that way” which is a non-apology. I’m sure if they comment on this it will be more excuses, more blame shifting, when they should be working to find out where they need to change and improve to ensure that people don’t die on their tour. The fact that they lack the decency to even take any kind of accountability and responsibility for the fact that I almost died is infuriating. The fact that they do not look at where they can improve to make their excursions safer, and have some kind of accountability, responsibility and empathy for people’s lives should terrify anyone who sets foot on one of their boats.

They highlight of our entire vacation on Tenerife! The diving school was really easy to find, at least by using google maps. First we had a very friendly and warm welcome from the diving team. After a few words, we were given our Snorkeling equipment looked all quite new and was in good condition and then went to the boat. It took us a ride of approx. 20-30 minutes to arrive at the snorkeling and diving area, where the sea turtles are located. The guide gave us some useful tips and even adjusted my girlfriends swimming mask. So, although it was our first snorkerling trip ever and we were quite nervous at the beginning, the event turnt into the most exiting event of our entire vacation! In few words: highly recommended, also for people, who dont feel that familiar/comfortable in the water like me

Ansich eine schöne Tour, leider ohne das erhoffte Erlebnis wirklich eine Schildkröte zu sehen.
, Oct 2021
Leider keine Schildkröte gesehen. Aber es war eine schöne Boots Tour und das Team war echt super nett.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Wir bedauern, dass Ihr Erlebnis unvollständig war, denn wir können keine Sichtung garantieren, da es manchmal schwierig ist, Schildkröten zu sehen, auch wenn wir sie normalerweise sehen.
Swim with the turtles and... ?? ;-)
, Sep 2021
Unser Betreuer/Coach der Schnorcheltour heißt Sebastian und hatte uns eine kurze und klare Einweisung im Schnorcheln gegeben und dann ging es auch schon los. Wir hatten das Glück eine Schildkröte (The green Turtle) entdecken und mit dieser ein wenig zu schwimmen. Beeindruckendes Erlebnis wenn die Schildkröte quasi neben einem schwimmt. Ansonsten konnte man noch verschiedene Fische begutachten. Wer hier allerdings das Great Barrier Reef erwartet, wird enttäuscht sein. Ist nicht gaaaanz so spektakulär, aber es war okay. Sebastian und die Crew waren während der Schnorchel-Phase sehr aufmerksam und hatten gefühlt alles und jeden jederzeit im Blick. Dies hatte uns sehr gut gefallen! Das eigentliche Highlight kam aber noch. Der "Captain" hatte während unserer Schnorchel-Pause an Board (nach ca. 40 Minuten) in der Ferne Delphine gesichtet. Spontan beendeten wir das Schnorcheln und alle waren heiß auf die Delphine. Und tatsächlich - nachdem wir die Delphine erreicht hatten und die uns auch wahrgenommen hatten, schwammen sie mit dem Schnellboot um die Wette. Erst einer. Dann kam der zweite. Beide im Tempo direkt (!!) neben dem Boot. Dann nahm einer das Tempo ein wenig raus und sprang auf einmal, wie man es aus dem TV kennt, aus dem Wasser und tauchte wieder ein. SO GEIL!! Alles 5 Meter neben dem Boot! Das war ein überragendes Erlebnis!
Super interessantes Erlebnis
, Aug 2021
Super nette Guides und alles sehr nett und professionell. Haben einem alles gut erklärt und dann ging es los aufs Meer. Haben eine Meeresschildkröte gesehen und auch sonst sehr interessant die Unterwasserwelt zu beobachten. Danach/Dabei noch Wasser aufm Boot und kleine Muffins zum essen. Im gesamten sehr zu Empfehlen
