    Booked this @ 30 Euros each on the basis of an advertised Dolphin search boat cruise. Staff were friendly enough BUT I got the impression that the chance of seeing any dolphins was very low/nil. There was no running commentary as such, and the boat chugged along slowly for an hour, with them occasionally looking through binoculars, then on the way back stopped for 20 mins for people to swim/snorkel and then return to port. I've been on similar cruises in rib boats before who are professional and coordinate with other boats on sightings and speed along to engage etc. None of that here. They do state at the beginning there's a chance of no sightings to "manage" your expectations. In hindsight the water taxi at 9 Euros is more enjoyable and considerably cheaper and at least takes you to another destination. For us it just didn't do what it said on the tin!

    Disappointed in this excursion as it was written to be something it wasn't. We didn't see dolphins which was understandable as the sightings are not guaranteed, but there was no snorkelling involved. Instead we had stopped in the middle of the sea and anyone who had the ability to swim could jump into the 10m+ waters which was disappointing as the experience was made to look like we would have some form of equipment provided for us, and support from staff who was available if anyone was struggling in the water. When asking questions, the guides didn't seem to know the answers themselves and were quite unprofessional. Truly disappointed as we were really anticipating this activity; we do know how to swim but due to the lack of support and understanding from staff, we were quite iffy to get into the water so the trip just consisted of the journey by boat.

    As a family we did the excursion today to Lobos Island. They laid on a transfer bus to and fro from our hotel. The Bus stopped at other hotels along the way to Puerto Del Carmen and Harbour, where the Jet Boat is moored. The Boat Captain and his mate were both called Pedro. The Captain explains in Spanish, English, French and German all the instructions. He tended to race through it all, so even in English we could not understand what he was trying to explain. The Boat ride over to Lobos Island takes roughly 1 hour. However if you are lucky enough to spot Dolphins or Whales, then the Boat stops to allow you to see the marine life. Unfortunately we saw nothing today. Which is bad luck. We disembarked the Boat at Lobos at 11:30 and was told by Pedro the return trip would leave at 14:00. Lobos Island is a volcanic small island and National park. At the dock there is a small museum and toilets. A 10 minute walk will take you to the very small village which has a restaurant. You must book and reserve a table there, otherwise you will be turned away, as it gets very busy. Because the island is volcanic rock, the beach and surrounding cliffs have very sharp volcanic rock! So make sure you have foot wear to wear into the sea for swimming. Otherwise it’s very painful under foot. In the sheltered cove by the village there is shallow beautiful crystal clear ocean water. Where you can swim and paddle and snorkel with fish all around. Which we enjoyed as a family. You can hire paddle boards in the Village. All the guests on this tour was provided with a packed lunch for food and drink. It consisted of ham/cheese sandwich, ham/cheese roll, can of lager, bottle of water, small bottle of yogurt drink, a carton of gazpacho soup. The packed lunch was okay. The sandwich had no butter and was dry. No one of our party wanted the Gazpacho. The return trip was great fun, as Pedro and Pedro got the Jet Boat speeding through the chop and waves. So we were up and down and the sea sprays was covering all the passengers. Once again we had no luck spotting any marine life. Apparently Dolphins migrate through the islands, so we might have missed their migration. In conclusion we enjoyed our day out and boat ride to Lobos Island. Definitely take extra food and drink with you as there are no shops on the island. Plus take a cheap pair of beach shoes so you don’t rip your feet to pieces on the volcanic rock. Captain Pedro was good but needs to slow down on explaining his instructions.

    Ok we didn’t see dolphins, but that is luck of the draw it’s nature. But to put families into deep ocean with no warning of currents and not providing any bouyancy aids is scandalous. Our trip turned Into a rescue operation with families being towed in on life rings as the current took them away from the boat and both crew members (who did well to rescue people) having to dive in and save people as it was an unsafe drop. Another boat had to rescue kids whom the captain could not get back to the boat as their ring drifted out to sea. I didn’t want to put this on social media but as my email has not been responded to after a week it compounds the negligence in my view . Only go swimming on this trip if the crew have verified it’s safe or ask for life vests …. A truly scary experience

    Fabulous fun. Very easy to find the place in the old harbour in puerto del carmen. The boat was quite large. We sailed out for about an hour, there was a lookout on the front of the boat scouring the sea for dolphins. The shout came from the back of the boat, Dolphins! We stayed with a pod of about 20 dolphins. Absolutely amazing, such an experience. Then we headed into a cove where they anchored up and we could get in the water for a swim or snorkel. We don’t like deep water so didn’t do this but my daughter had a waterproof pouch for her phone which she dangled in the water and took a video. It was teeming with fish. Well worth the money

    We saw a pod of dolphins which was fantastic but the female host was a bit short after the swim stop

    Great adventure trip. Brilliant few hours in the bay that did not disappoint. we saw a huge pod of dolphins that played with the boat and saw alongside us for about 15 minutes. Stunning !

    Well organised trip out to sea to look for dolphins and whales… and they really looked..😳 but both our trip and one before didn’t get to see them but thats nature for you. Had great time anyway and due to the waves got slightly wet. Great stop to allow swim in sea which my grandson and I really enjoyed. Thank you

    Fabulous boat trip with friendly professional staff. The boat was clean throughout and a pleasure to be on. The food was fresh and delicious and plentiful! The places we visited were full of interest and there was plenty of time to explore. I highly recommend this trip if you are looking for a relaxed and interesting day out and enjoy being on the water.

    Due to weather conditions we weren’t able to go onto Isla de Lobos, which was seemingly known in advance and there were also many other people on the island - for me exploring Lobos was the reason for booking. That being said it would have made more sense to have allocated more time to Lanzarote and to have let customer know in advance so they could chose whether or not they still want to take the tour. Just floated around the bay near lobos for 1.5 hours, rather uneventful and kind of a waste of time. The tour didn’t give much information/history on the islands. The only water activities are snorkeling and sitting on a float. So maybe if you’re a family - kids snorkel and swim and whatnot- this is a good tour but overall, as an adult/solo traveler, found it lackluster and regretted not taking advantage of other tours on Fuerteventura. Essentially was the same as taking a ferry with lunch
