5hr cruise from Port Colon, by Playa de Americas to Los Gigantes & bottom of Masca trail. Nice yacht the "Shogun", though 2 sails put up for effect and shade from the sun, rather than to sail you as under motor all the time. POSITIVES FIRST Excellent wildlife, though not guaranteed every visit, we saw Pilot Whales, Spotted Dolphins, Common... More

We got picked up from our hotel to go out on the Shogun. We go every year on the boat, we saw whales and 3 species dolphins and sea turtle this time. They play music on the boat and the guide can speak several languages to keep you involved. It is such an amazing experience seeing the Whales and Dolphins.... More

I was spectral about the claim of seeing dolphins and whales, as I have been on other boats, many years ago, and saw nothing, but now I see the boats have echo sounders, so the chance of finding something is very much better. Shogun, looks the part,a real wooden boat, no fibre glass rubbish here. Book on the day and... More

It was great to go on a pirate ship. We sat on top deck which had the best views. Seeing the dolphins/whales was a spectacular sight. Food was basic but tasty and drinks 1 euro. Staff were great. Good way to see more of island

Pro's - we saw a dolphin and loads of pilot whales. Lovely! Crew were brilliantly multilingual, everyone on that boat knew what was going on and there must have been at least 6 languages between us all. Cons - food wasn't great, drinks were meant to be included but didn't seem to be, and 80% of us on that boat... More
