Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Picked by 2 afrikat persons on a bus, that took 1.5hours to reach the destination picking up folks here and there. No music nor ”this is x on the right”, just sitting. No mention how long this will take. And naturally waiting for people who r unfamiliar with being in time….how difficult can that be…

Well, got finally to the harbour and ordered on a queu, waiting for permission to enter. Funnily enough, the boat was not ready, considering it had been 1.5h+ since the 1st pick-ups. Anyway, finally the gates were opened and people let in by groups via the usual photographing. This was good system, we were directed to a corner, ”u are 4 persons, right?”, so we got sunbeds in an orderly fashion, as everyone else. There was space for everyone, and just to let u know, you will be moving on the boat, so not that critical to have the best possible bed anyway.

Instructions given by a chap speaking excellent english as everyone else on the boat (dont know of the captain though), 1st drinks are ordered, after this self service. Self service from beer tab or ordinary big coke bottles to plastic drinkin class given in the beginning (use the same the whole trip and take with u). Ice available, these are included. Seems you can order with extra cost other stuff, the only thing is that I didnt see any list nor was it mentioned. All together, info is scarce, speedboat in included? Where’s that mentioned? We stop after…dont know, it just happens. What happens when we stop? Dont know…it just happens, for example, you need to know you can swim here…how long? Hard to say. Do we stop another time? Dont know, hard to say….No, these were not said via loudspeakers…so it would be good to open up and give more info of whats happening.

Food was simple, wrappes with potato salad and some chip, which was ok, and communicated.

But all together this was nice, service was friendly and we had a nice day with the family.
Things to improve, but not things that would have bothered me too much to drop from 4 points to 3.

Found the trip really short and quite pricey for what it really was. Staff were amazing. Food was very poor and not as advertised. I was recommended this by Tui advisor over other boat trips. There are plenty of other boat trips leaving the same harbour

Hi Nick, thank you for your review of Afrikat. We are sorry to hear that your expectations were not met and that you were not informed well by your Tui advisor, as you see from the many other 5 star reviews, this is not the general opinion of our customers.

Great fun and fantastic staff. Excellent food and drink. I was solo and didn’t feel out of place at all.
Activities well organised I did the speedboat and jet ski both were awesome.
Afrikat boat was immaculate with a spacious clean toilet which is a massive thumbs up on a boat cruise.
Thank you all for making my day a very enjoyable one.

What a great time we had on the Afrikat catamaran! The crew were all great fun, good food, free flowing drinks, clean boat with loads of space. The swim stop was great and not rushed, with beautiful clear water and loads of fish. We had fun on the speedboat and were entertained on the way home by a saxophonist playing along to popular music. Brilliant day out; highly recommended!

The highlight of my holiday for sure. All staff/crew were wonderful, friendly and fun etc, boat was clean and loungers were super comfortable. Only wish it were for longer as I could’ve happily gone swimming again after lunch had gone down. And the claim that the Mojito is the best in Gran Canaria isn’t a stretch. I had a non alcoholic one and it was incredible. The owner of the boat has worked hard to provide a trip that is as sustainable as possible - it’s brilliant. Thank you so much, when I return to GC I’ll definitely be booking another excursion! 🇮🇨🌺🌴🫶
