We have been on Poker Chip twice and we will definitely go again. What a fantastic day out. Get up close and personal with the whales and dolphins, relax in a quiet bay and enjoy lunch, snorkel with the resident turtles. Neil is always very friendly and knows how to make the day special. This is a fantastic experience you will never forget.

Just home from Tenerife and had to leave some feedback about Poker Chip Charter. Myself, my wife and our 2 grandkids ventured out on a trip and it easily was the best of our holiday. Within 1hr of leaving Puerto Colon we had seen several dolphins, a family of 8 whales and then a number of turtles in the cove. I will definitely return and do this again. The kids loved it, especially the over the side swim time. Many thanks to Neil and his team.

”This is the best thing to do if you are in South Tenerife. Brilliant value for money. The children loved every minute of it and the whales were amazing. I definitely recommend this boat trip!”

“Poker Chip Charter provide an affordable boat charter service from Puerto Colón marina in Costa Adeje, near the Playa de Las Americas and Fañabe resorts in Tenerife. Neil offers perfect facilities for families or business parties. I chartered Poker Chip first in 2009 and again a few months later and we plan to contact Neil on our next visit.” Top qualities: Personable, Good Value, Creative.

” ‘Three out of three ain’t bad!’ We saw dolphins, whales and turtles! And had a fantastic trip on Poker Chip. Neil and our captain made such an effort to make our day special, we felt like friends not tourists. We recommend Poker Chip Charter for a great day. Thank you.”

”We chose Poker Chip for the children and because we could decide during the charter if it was for us or not. We loved it and the kids were still talking about it when we got home. ”
Penny, London, UK.


“If you only book one excursion in Costa Adeje then book this one. This is the most personal experience, if sea life is your thing you’ll never get closer. The kids loved driving the boat, the captain was informative and Neil is brilliant. Massively better value than anything else we know of too – we cannot recommend Poker Chip enough.”

“We had a great afternoon out on Poker Chip. The kids loved it especially when they got to drive the boat. My son hasn’t stopped talking about it. I highly recommend Poker Chip for your trip from Puerto Colón. Thanks to Neil and Alex. x”

“The best boat trip I have been on! Value for money was second to none and the captain was a very good host. Many thanks for an amazing time on Poker Chip.”
Matty Stevenson – Bristol, UK. Summer 2010


“What a fantastic day! We were looking for something different and found it with Poker Chip! Our children got to drive the boat, which they loved! The food was great too and the cost of chartering this boat for ourselves wasn’t much different to going on a crowded boat with strangers! So why not be a little selfish and have it all to yourselves!
We got to see dolphins, whales and also got to swim with turtles – a priceless experience. Neil made us feel like friends rather than customers, and he also helped me out with a problem after I returned home, a massive thank you for that! We will 100% be using Poker Chip Charter when we return next year and we recommend them to anyone wanting a special day without the usual high price tag!”

“We chartered Poker Chip Charter in Tenerife and from the first second we met Neil we were really treated like one wants to be treated, and not like it was ‘just for the money’. We had a great time with friends on board and recommend Neil as the person to meet if you’re after such a trip.
His personal treatment made a big impression on us especially as trustworthy persons are sometimes difficult to find. I will certainly go back to Poker Chip for more when I return to Tenerife.” Personable, Good Value, High Integrity

A customer’s summary…
We found Poker Chip Charter in Tenerife by accident. We didn’t want a boat packed with people and didn’t want to spend a fortune either. There was nothing on offer in our hotel that appealed but a ticket seller in Puerto Colón recommended Poker Chip and we were pleased to find we could have a private charter within our budget.
From the photos we saw in the brochure we thought Poker Chip might be a bit cramped but we were reassured otherwise and made the reservation. When the day came we were surprised to find that space wasn’t an issue as once on board she’s actually roomy with space to walk around. You could sit comfortably all day long on the sofa-style back seat under the bimini top.
During the cruise we saw pilot whales and dolphins and got some great photos. Two or three of us had a go at the wheel and had some instruction which was fun. We stopped in a bay for a swim and snorkel and turtles came near the boat.
The buffet Neil served was excellent and fresh and there was fruit, ice cold cava and naughty cakes which were a complete surprise. The day turned out to be one of the most memorable of our holiday. I would recommend Poker Chip Charter for both family and group charters, or for business parties. We all thoroughly enjoyed our time spent in Neil’s care and have already contacted him directly to arrange more of the same on our return to Tenerife in December this year.”

I went out on the Poker Chip with my wife, father-in-law, son and his girlfriend. Whereas the majority of the boat trips fail to remain in the memory, that trip was the best by some distance. Whales suddenly appeared next to us and the skipper showed them so much respect. We went to a secluded cove and snorkels were provided. It was just a lovely trip and refreshments were included in the price, which was very reasonable. If you want something ordinary, jump on a big boat with the rest of the crowd. Or go for something that is consummately professional and very memorable. Highly recommended.

​ We recently went out with Poker Chip Charter, and it was the most amazing experience and definitely one we will never forget. The animals came up so close to us it was breath taking. Our skipper was great too, and so friendly. This is definitely an experience not to be missed.
​Shauna and Scott Whitworth – 24th August, 2011


​ The best whale and dolphin trip we’ve been on, and we’ve been on a trip almost every year for 24 years! We and 4 friends went out on Poker Chip on August 19th and had a great day. We saw whales, dolphins and a sea turtle. The captain was very knowledgeable and informative and we also had an opportunity to drive the boat which, for my husband, made the day. Thanks so much.
​Ken & Lynn Macdonald – Sun, 28th August, 2011


​ Hi, we come home now in Belgium, but we still have in our heads the great moments we had during our trip on your boat. It is one of the best things we did in our holidays. A very big thanks to Neil, David and our captain Jorge. I will recommend it to everyone who want to have 3 hours of happiness.
Missen Benoit – Sat, 27th August, 2011


​What a great way to spend a few hours, the boat and staff are excellent. We had an amazing time and saw dolphins, whales and swam with the turtles. Food and drink on board and everything is included in the price so go for it and enjoy the exclusivity of your own boat. ​Thank you Neil and Jorge for an excellent experience.
The Kent family 11th September 2011​


We had the best day ever. The paella was lovely, Jorge our captain was great fun and made the day really special. We were two families with teenage children and we all had an amazing day. I highly recommend chartering Poker Chip.
​Chelines – Thu, 15th September, 2011


​ Hello Neil & Jorge. The trip we had on Saturday was wonderful. We have seen lots of whales and dolphins but never before swam with Sea Turtles… Just wonderful!!! Food & drink were great as well! Thank you Jorge for all of your great travel conversation and insights into the Canary Islands… Thanks Neil for the lift to the airport! We highly recommend Poker Chip Charter.
​Collin Lane & Tammy Baker (Lake Country, BC Canada) – Mon, 3rd October, 2011


​I do a lot of whale and dolphin spotting trips, and have been out of Puerto Colón on many occasions. Poker Chip is a lovely experience with a knowledgeable pilot who respects and likes the wildlife which he is showing us. A joy. Thank you.​​ I have put a more thorough review on TripAdvisor.
​Mandy Skinner – Tue, 18th October, 2011


Hi Neil. I just wanted to thank you for yet another great trip on Poker Chip. Sorry that you couldn’t make it out with us Neil, but Jorge more than made up for it! He was very passionate about what he did and was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the trip. Lunch was great, plenty of drinks as promised, and it was a real treat for us to see all three (whales, dolphins & turtles)! Great to see you, and many many thanks from Steve & Karen, Steve & Debbie, Tom & Jane.
​Steve Evans – Tue, 18th October, 2011


​I had a great time on Poker Chip and the captain knew his stuff and he was brilliant. It was good value for money – beer, filled rolls, saw whales, dolphins and turtles. Thank you very much.
​Martin Fletcher – Wed, 9th November, 2011


Thank you for a great day out, we really enjoyed it and the kids have done nothing but talk about driving the boat since we got back. We have told everyone about Poker Chip Charter. Take care and thanks again.
