This trip was excellent. Even though we didn't see any whales or dolphins it was still worth it for the trip on the boat. Alex and Monique were informative, very friendly and also very professional too. I would do this trip again and thoroughly recommend C-Riders.

i went out with Alex & Monique Clieron on their boat for a whale watching trip. Of course, when going to see wild animals there are no guarantees but we were lucky! A pod of pilot whales who dived and swam near the boat. We also saw flying fish, the whales were hard to get images of as my reactions... More

On arrival we were greeted by a very lovely couple monique and Alex. My first language is English and they spoke very clearly, they were very... More

Me & my other half did this trip on 18th May. I think we must have been on the same trip as Liset V as she is describing exactly what we experienced and saw. Alex & Monique are very welcoming & knowledgeable people that really looked after us. We was lucky to see the whales & dolphins which was a... More

Alex and Monique are very nice people who have shown me places for good food, and have provided a lot of information about the island. They had a problem with the boat but I was welcome to sit with them and have a nice chat. On my last day I did the sea experience and we were so lucky to... More

We had a very nice experience going out with Monique and Alex for this nice sea-cruise. Beautiful sea, nice view on the island with good explanatory talk from Monique, lots of flying fish and the beautiful eagles. Unfortunately no luck with the whales & Dolphins ... Maybe next year! Excellent experience.

Do you want to go on the water? Go to the C-riders office in front of hotel Morabeza in Santa Maria, do not go anywhere else, choose the best value for your money! The introduction and welcome by Monique is very friendly and she gives a detailed explanation, in any language (she is Belgian after all!) about the boat trip,... More

Lovely Belgian couple, Monique and Alex. We went for a great rib boat trip. Good fun in the boat, bouncing on the waves, and running in to some flying fish and finally a gang of dolphins playing around the boat. Good adventure, and feeling just as comfortable as going with your own family. We came back a few days later... More

We went on the Rib trip and despite seeing no whales or dolphins thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Alex and Monique were very knowledgable and couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome. I have a bad back so they let me sit on the co pilots seat with Alex. We did see flying fish and sea eagles and learnt a... More
