Whale Watch Tarifa Reviews
We visited in the middle of August and did the dolphin/whale watching tour - saw some dolphins from far far away and that's about it. It is not worth the money. more »
Ha sido toda una experiencia. Nos han tratado de maravilla en el barco y en todo momento el personal muy atento y explicándonos todo. Ver los delfines en libertad en el mar es algo que nadie debe perd... more »It's been quite an experience. We have been treated wonderfully on the boat and at all times the staff very attentive and explaining everything. Seeing dolphins at large at sea is something no one should miss. Totally recommendable.
Well, my review does not consider the tour. Actually this company is just a middleman and the tour itself is done by Turmares (which is all good – please book directly from them!). But this one... Oh dear. Avoid it at all cost. Poor communication, staff that does not read their emails and when they screw up (big time) you will only get back eye rolling and Spanish customer service at its worst. No need to use them for booking as in the worst case – like what happened to me and my son, costing us 5 hours of sleep and 30 euros worth of travelling – they will book you to the wrong trip, give you wrong information and do not bother to do their only job, which is to be the link between their customer and Turmares. No need to use them. Ever again.
Unfortunately I am Not happy to have to give this judgement, but unfortunately I feel that I have to have clarity. The types of Tours to see cetaceans are two a shorter one that includes whales and dolphins, and the second longest that provides in the period July/August the Orche. The Price is discreetly high, €50 adult €30 child (from 4 years old). Reassured by the girl at the desk, who told us that the orcas in this period are many, we very willingly decided to choose this tour more expensive than the other, also because if you check on the site and on the Flyers it says that if you do not see the Cetaceans guarantee a second free trip to the 100%. We All happy we start in the morning but unfortunately we can only see dolphins, of different kinds but only those. No Whales, no orche. The journey lasts three hours and when we return, convinced we can have our second chance we learn that if we wanted to redo the tour to see the Orche, we would have given a discount of 30%. So Despite our civilians remonstrance on the non-truthfulness of the guarantee and the fact that after spending 260 euros for the tour, we could not spend more though with the discount, the answer was that the guarantee to 100% only applies if you do not see even a PE Sciolino, as if this is ever possible in a strait between Sea and Ocean where many and many fish pass. In Short, the tour where you see what you paid for and you expect a guarantee is also nice, but know that there is the possibility that it is a hole in the water without second chance!
