Tenerife: Whale and Dolphin Tour with Underwater Views

1. Tenerife: Whale and Dolphin Tour with Underwater Views

Discover the majestic of playful whales and dolphins on this catamaran cruise from Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Choose between a 2-hour and a 3-hour tour, with the latter including lunch, drinks, and a swim stop in the waters of Playa Blanca Bay. 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.

Expect a day out on the sea so be ready for it, waves, rocking and everything. If you are ok with that, then the experience will be great. Plenty of dolphins and three decks to watch them from. The bottom one is a bit crammed but good underwater views. The speaker is excellent and speaking many languages. An excellent experience all in all.

To the sunset views above the clouds and the marvelling of stars & constellations, it was truly an outstanding experience! We had so many wow moments. And if you get lucky you’ll get to see a few shooting stars too!

This was a great cruise, saw dolphins and whales. Loved this and would definitely go again... this was the 2 hour cruise we done , so much cheaper and saw everything we where supposed to. Would totally recommend

Actividad muy completa. Vimos muchos delfines y algunas ballenas. Luego pudimos nadar un rato en el agua.

Beautiful weather, lots of dolphins & whales to see & photograph
