Tenerife: Kayaking and Snorkeling with Turtles

1. Tenerife: Kayaking and Snorkeling with Turtles

Climb aboard for a kayaking adventure in Tenerife and get up close and personal with dolphins and turtles in their natural environment. Observe the amazing creatures from a vessel that does not frighten them or disturb their natural habitat. Be surrounded by pods of up to 30 dolphins that sometimes put on a show by jumping high into the air. Home to up to 5 different species of dolphins, including bottlenose dolphins, the waters just off the island’s coast are ideal to marvel at these lovable creatures. While the bottlenose dolphins are the easiest to spot, other species inhabit the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, including rough-toothed dolphins, striped dolphins, and common dolphins. As wild animals, views cannot be guaranteed, but there is a 95% chance that you will encounter the animals on your trip. Get an optional swimming break and snorkel with turtles and bull rays in a bay only accessible by kayak as a bonus. Usually, within a few minutes, curious turtles arrive and get very close, swimming around and in between you. Also, bull rays regularly glide elegantly along the sea bed underneath you.

A very enjoyable trip with traditional lunch Spectacular views and the guide been amazing Excepting a bit tiring so many languages :) this bit been a bit funny but the rest of the trip really good organised and very good communication I will recommend to take the trip and enjoy a really beautiful relaxing day on the GOMERA ISLAND

Our guide spoke 5 languages and I really enjoyed learning some history of the island and the volcano. Tiedes National Park was beautiful and is very accessible for those with physical impairments. I would book this tour again!

Despite cloudy weather and murky water, we had a great time. We benefited from the clemency of mother nature and were able to observe turtles and dolphins. Topissime!!!

Superb excursion we were able to see many dolphins nearby and a turtle. Diving was not possible at the usual place unfortunately. Thanks to our guide Pablo!

The guides are awesome and very funny. They make you feel good and entertained. 3 hours will fly by.
