“Made Our Holiday!”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

This trip was the most fabulous outing of our holiday and will be an afternoon we will remember forever. After a short coach ride from our hotel we were escorted to the Catlanza base and given time to go to the toilet and have a quick look at the harbour shops etc in the lovely town of Puerto Calero. Then we boarded the catamaran in a well organised way and given a good humoured safety/rules talk as we left the harbour. You could then sit anywhere you liked and move around freely. The drinks flowed but nobody got crazy drunk and the lovely gents on board came round and gave all the kids bandanas and pirate tattoos. My 8 year old absolutely loved it and couldn't believe that he could keep his bandana to take home!
There was plenty of time to swim and snorkel and all the kids loved the slide into the water! The jet ski was the highlight of my boy's holiday and he told me he is going to learn Spanish and get a jet ski license so that he can go and work at Catlanza when he grows up, and be like Alejandro taking people for rides on the jet ski! He also loved the bumpy ride home home and went right to the front of the boat as Captain Francis splashed us through the sea! The pasta was cooked perfectly and the salad was gorgeous. I cannot recommend this trip highly enough. It was such good value for the money as it took up the afternoon and early eavening. I bet their 'adults only' trips are fab too, exactly the kind of trip I would have enjoyed in my 20s! We went on other trips during our hol and this was defo the best. We shall be returning to Lanzarote as we loved it and would like to see more. I don't normally go back to the same place twice and would never usually repeat a trip, but this will certainly be on my 'to do' list next time I'm there. THANK YOU CATLANZA!

“A fabulous day out”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

We had a day out on the Catlanza while on holidays in July. It was an absolutely fantastic day from start to finish, even my sister who is not a sailor and nearly had to be carried on. The crew are fantastic and make sure that everyone on board have a great time. Our daughter has special needs and the crew made sure she had everything she needed and were on hand to help if we needed assistance. The highlight for my son and daughter was the Jet-ski ride. There is also plenty of time to relax and enjoy the sunshine on the nets. Karl's safety announcements were very entertaining yet got to the point. I loved the part where he pointed over the side of the boat for the emergency exits!!. We were on the children's cruise and each of the children got a bandanna and anyone who wanted could get their faces painted. My son and husband went swimming and snorkeling and fed the fish. The dance off with the kids at the very end was a howl. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who visits Lanzarote.

“A brilliant catamaran trip to Papagoya”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

We went on the 'Platinum' cruise (adults only) one afternoon and had a brilliant time. Great crew, who like a laugh and a good time like all of us, great catamaran and some brilliant coast line as we sailed down. Overall, about a 4 hour trip but something not to be missed. Well worth the money. Highly recommended, but pre-book early as each trip gets fully booked quite early on.
