Full description
First, choose from an optional pickup from your hotel in Santa Cruz de Tenerife or make your own way to the meeting point at the port. The skipper will welcome you aboard the Cruz del Sur, a spacious 14-meter yacht. Listen as he explains the itinerary of the excursion and gives some information about safety measures. Then, set off to explore the whale and dolphin sighting area off the coast of Tenerife.  As you sail, keep your eyes peeled for these wonderful marine creatures. If you're lucky, you may even see some turtles. After spotting the wildlife, approach the coast and anchor the boat. Enjoy the opportunity to bathe or snorkel in the crystal-clear waters whilst the crew prepares lunch. Snorkeling equipment is provided.  For lunch, enjoy a delicious spread of typical, local food. Later, return to the port, sailing along the coastline and admiring the protected natural site of Punta de Rasca. Arrive at the port and bid farewell to the crew. Either your tour concludes, or you can benefit from the return transfer back to your hotel by selecting the option with hotel pickup and drop-off.

Good welcome but the French guide was absent. We had to switch between English and Spanish. So not easy and we missed some information for sure. We were able to see sperm whales with white backs. The guides told us it was the 3rd time in 15 years. It was very beautiful to see these animals in their natural environment.

Hello, we did a whale and dolphin outing on April 22, 2022. We were lucky enough to see small whales and many dolphins. The crew is really very nice, and takes care of us. The small aperitif on the boat is very pleasant. Unfortunately, we weren't able to take full advantage of it because we had the rain... But it's to do with the sun, it's even better!

Fantastic day out, very knowledgable team. I chose this tour because it was 'local' with a small capacity and was earlier in the morning. The boat was great and there was only a few people, no crowding. We were the only boat out so we saw lots of Whales and flying fish, stopped for a swim and had some delicious food and drink! Perfect day out, thank you guys!
