Tenerife: South Coast Jet Ski Experience

1. Tenerife: South Coast Jet Ski Experience

Meet your guide at the port of San Miguel, where the jet skis will be waiting for you. Get equipped with all the necessary gear, including a life jacket, snorkeling mask, goggles, and a wetsuit.

Depending on the weather, see different locales and keep your eyes peeled to spot whales, dolphins, turtles, and fish. If choosing the 2-hour tour option, make a stop to dip into the ocean and try out your snorkeling gear halfway through.

Tenerife: Kayaking and Snorkeling with Turtles

2. 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.
