Full description
Set sail in the Atlantic on an unforgettable eco-friendly dolphin and whale watching boat day trip in Tenerife. Get all food and drinks included onboard, plus the chance to have a swim or snorkel whilst at sea. Start your marine adventure by meeting your crew at the dock for a quick safety briefing. Then, set sail towards ideal dolphin and whale watching hotspots on a catamaran equipped with fuel-efficient technology designed to greatly reduce its carbon footprint. Time to get out your phone or camera while cruising the Teno-Rasca Whale Sanctuary, part of Tenerife’s official Special Conservation Zone that protects vulnerable marine wildlife and habitats. Enjoy the views from the boat as you pass beaches such as Playa de las Américas and Playa de los Cristianos on the way. Even spot the famous Mount Teide from the water on clear days. Spot dolphins and whales in their natural habitat, safe in the knowledge that you are also simultaneously respecting it. Benefit from your crew’s expert commentary and underwater audio equipment to bring the sounds of the ocean onto your deck. Even enjoy some time for swimming or snorkeling in the Atlantic waters before heading back to shore. Drinks and sandwiches are included. If you want even more time at sea, book the extended option that includes a catered paella lunch onboard. Gain 2 extra hours with the "extended" option to explore more parts of the coastline, including the impressive cliffs at Los Gigantes, and the exclusive bay at Masca Beach that once served as a pirate hideaway.

Activité parfaite ! Nous avons rencontré plusieurs baleines pilotes, et avons également eu la chance d’observer tout un groupe de dauphins en chemin ! L’équipage était formidable et attentionné, s’assurant que nous ayons toutes les informations, et que nous ne manquions de rien. On a profité de la délicieuse paella avec vin blanc, et on a adoré la baignade dans la baie de Masca au pied des falaises !

Thoroughly enjoyed this trip. It was great to see the crew genuinely excited and interested in seeing the dolphins, turtles and whales themselves. They clearly wanted everyone to have a good time and this was reflected in their manner. It never felt once like they were going through the motions. It was the perfect length of time and although we didn't swim ourselves, everyone who did seemed to really enjoy it. They also ensured that we were topped up with beer - never a bad thing!

I recommend this tour 100%! We saw a huge amount of whales, some pretty close to the boat and some dolphins swim by us too. Quite unforgettable. The crew is super nice and well prepared. There were only 8 people taking the tour, so it felt like a private tour. Food was ok, but seeing the wonderful mammals close by more than compensates it! Also, the crew was careful not to have the motor or music on close to the animals and collected trash from the ocean :)
