Full description
Climb aboard for a 2.5-hour 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.

Experience the extraordinary sensation of being 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 coast of the island are the perfect spot 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 the bull rays regularly glide elegantly along the sea bed underneath you.

We had a lovely morning. Saw a few dolphins around the fish farm and a turtle in the bay when snorkelling, so saw everything that was advertised. Kayaking that far of a distance got quite difficult towards the end, especially as the weather conditions turned for the worse, but would recommend this trip highly.

We did not expect to see any turtles on this trip in the middle of winter but we came across them whilst snorkelling and was a wonderful experience. We expected and did see some dolphins whilst kayaking and we did. The guide was very nice and knowledgable and clearly enjoyed her job and provided a great experience! Thank you xx
