Full description

Sail off the coast of southwest Tenerife on a 2-hour boat excursion looking for whales and dolphins. Sip on free drinks on board, and learn fascinating facts from your crew as you look out for marine creatures on your voyage.

Depart from Puerto Colon, traveling 2 or 3 miles from the coast where pilot whales are located. The beautiful sea mammals live permanently in the area and are seen all year around.

Sailing by catamaran, pass by fish farms, where clever dolphins are often looking for an easy meal. The crew is knowledgeable about the whales and Tenerife's other marine life. Learn about the huge squids that can grow up to 40 feet in length and live 2,600 feet deep between Tenerife and La Gomera. Enjoy free drinks on board the boat. If you choose the 3-hour option the catamaran will stop in the bay of Playa Espagueti and you can enjoy swimming and snorkeling off the boat.

Very nice tour with small group (15 people). This gives you enough space on the catamaran. We found it very pleasant that the crew didn't talk all the time and gave you the freedom to enjoy the time. Only when we met the dolphins and pilot whales did they briefly tell us something about them. The crew and the captain give the animals enough space and turn off the engine again and again.

A nice tour over the water and then we go to a bay for swimming. The value for money is great. Unfortunately we only saw a few pilot whales on the tour, no dolphins. The boat then had to return quickly. Drinks are included and there were even free sandwiches on board. Equipment for snorkeling was also included. I recommend packing travel pills to be on the safe side, as it gets bumpy quickly on the water. Unfortunately, the tour didn't have a particularly lasting effect. The boat drove comparatively close to the animals. The boat was powered by a diesel engine. Loud music was turned on on the way back. Fish were fed with bread. The boat was also very full.

Due to the weather conditions the sea was very rough and no whales/dolphins were sighted. It was more than a pity that the crew didn't say anything about the sea/animals etc. to compensate. It was therefore almost two hours without comment on a heavily rocking ship. The sunset only a small consolation.
