I hired the atlanca boat as a surprise for my husbands 40th birthday and it was honestly the best day and lots of fun. Easy to book, when we arrived Patrick did the paperwork and explained everything then Fran gave us all the safety information on how to ride the boat. Everything was provided and additional special touches were much appreciated. They were both great, really friendly and put us at ease. We had 3 hours booked and we got the full time, everything excellent. Highly recommended. Thank you

Alquilamos una excursión para ver cetáceos y dar un paseo de 3h. En general la experiencia estuvo bien. Toda la gestión de reserva fue fácil y el trato con Bananapalmbay fue un gusto.
Al llegar al barco tuvimos alguna confusión con lo acordado, pero tras comunicarse la empresa del barco con Bananapalmbay se solucionó y pudimos disfrutar del viaje. Además vimos ballenas piloto.

My partner and I rented a boat for 4 hours from Jan Daniel and we had the best day! By far our favourite experience of our whole holiday. We would definitely recommend to anyone looking to rent a boat to do your own exploring along the southern coast of Tenerife. 5* experience!

Ich habe mit dieser Gesellschaft 2 tolle Touren gemacht. Die Teide Nationalpark Tour mit Masca, war klasse, sowohl Guide als auch Busfahrer waren toll. Viel information und gute Betreuung. Ein unvergesslicher Tag. 🥰 Die 2. Tour war Oberklasse, ich bin mit Shogun zur Wahlbeobachtung rausgefahren und wir haben eine ganze Familie Pilotwale gesehen, diese wunderbaren Wesen sind recht neugierig und kamen auch auf das Boot zu. Ich habe Shogun vorgezogen, weil mir die übervollen Katamarane nicht so gefallen. Gute Wahl. Die ganze Fahrt ist wunderbar, man fährt bis Los Gigantes und in der Bucht gibt es eine köstliche Mahlzeit. Es ist sehr beeindruckend, dort zu ankern. Habe die Fahrt sehr genossen.......ich liebe das Meer sehr.🥰

What a fantastic day on our own private yacht. We went for the Astondoa 46 and the service was amazing. We saw sea turtles, dolphins and whales. Quick stop by a beach for a snorkel with the fishes and then back to drinking cava! Jan was great with the communication and made everything stress free. 100% would recommend to anyone planning something a little bit special.
