The weather was calm, which, after reading reviews on here,we made sure before booking. The trip was great. We had chicken paella, banana + drinks. Cans of lager or wine with coke or fanta too. We saw about 10 dolphins which our teenage daughter loved . Not many people jumped off at the bay because it was a cloudy day... More

We drove from Santa Cruz to Los Gigantes in the hope of finding an excursion appropriate to us to see the whales or/and dolphins. We headed to the Flipper Uno office by the port. Rebeca was of great help talking us through the options of the day. We could have gone on the three hour Flipper Uno trip or the... More

You might find the boat a bit busy but you will see Dolphins (and maybe Whales but we did not). The drink and food is really good and staff are very entertaining, especially the old looking pirate guy. My only criticism is for people that smoke because it spoilt our trip a little having to breathe other people's exhaust fumes.... More

The trip provided us with exactly what was advertised and we saw Pilot Whales and dolphins. There was time to have a drink on the boat and the opportunity for a swim in a small cove if that is what you want. This really is a must trip for couple of hours.

I was excited to go on this visit and see the whales and dolphins. All this excitement was transformed into a nightmare! Since the beginning of it, we all realize about the unstable ocean's weather and was hoping that the crew and the captain changed their minds and turn back. However, they insist to go further and further even with... More

Really enjoyed a morning boat trip to see the dolphins, the Masca beach and the highest cliffs at Los Gigantes. Staff very helpful and provided biscuits, beer and soft drinks. Beautiful experience indeed. Highly recommended.

This was the most disgusting experience in my life. In general they advertise the following: 1) dolphins/whales 2) swimming 3) beautiful views 4) dinner (paelia) on board We bought the tickets to Flipper Uno in January 2017 and I'd say that this was the worst experience in all vacations of my life. The crew decided to take off and sail... More

My husband and I went on this company's whale/dolphin watching 3 hr boat trip last week and very much enjoyed it. We saw quite a few dolphins that were fairly close to the boat, but no whales. The staff were very friendly and helpful, there were free drinks (soda, wine, beer) and food served near the end of the trip... More

We arrived to Los Gigantes too late to do the Masca Valley walk, so did a two hour boat (the Masca Express) instead. No sign of Whales or Dolphins, but we did see one sea turtle come up for air! The view of the Cliffs of the Giants was quite breath taking, and worth the trip in itself. At €15... More
