Full description
Hop aboard your stylish catamaran, which features underwater viewing stations. Pick a spot on deck to view the many sights in store during this tour. As you head out from the harbor, your professional crew will use their local knowledge to track the families of whales and dolphins who live near the island year round. Hear an introduction speech from your guide, including a demonstration of safety vests.  

Sail along the coastline past Adeje, Guia de Isora, and Santiago del Teide, where pods of spirited dolphins and groups of pilot whales are a common sight. If you are lucky enough to spot them, spend a few minutes below deck and observe them from a vantage point underneath the water's surface.

Then, enjoy a cold beer or a glass of sangria along with lunch back on deck (if you book the 3-hour option). The boat will return to Puerto Colon and if you have booked a transfer, your bus will take you back to your pickup point.

Fantastic scenery. The trip out to see the dolphins/whales. Take in the under water viewing gallery. Staff are very informative when it comes knowledge of the area. Very good value for money, it's a must when holidaying on the island. Catamaran has plenty of room, snacks, drinks. Very cheap on board the Royal Delphin and then purchase the photos which are very reasonable priced at 15 euros for two photos. Breathtaking views of Los Gigantes cliffs. DO NOT miss the opportunity to climb on board the only vessel with underwater viewing gallery. DEFINITELY put this trip on your itenary when visiting the area.

Fantastic trip. Great to see both dolphins and whales. Go food with great views. cute helpful staff. A little too much talk, where all countries had to be mentioned many times. A little more calm would have been nice. It's a pity that we couldn't buy a picture, because something had gone wrong with the memory card. But a great day. Which we enjoyed and are happy we brought along. can be highly recommended

The crew on board was great, there was an interpreter in several languages. We were able to observe pilot whales on the excursion, several times. The boat was perfect as we were traveling with baby and toddler. But you should be prepared for a boat full of tourists. But there was enough space for everyone. There was also catering on board and a swim stop. The food was okay (me and the child enjoyed it).
