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 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 to swim in the Atlantic waters before heading back to shore. On the 3-hour tour, you will be served drinks and a small sandwich.

If you want even more time at sea, book the extended option that includes an onboard lunch with rice and chicken. Vegetarian options are also available. 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.

Pros: Great cruise on catamaran, unlimited drinks, alright food, comfortable nets/deck chairs, lots of dolphins and whales Cons: Only 15 minutes of swimming, not allowed to leave the boat area out of the radius of few meters. Also the crew member, even though he was funny and nice, was kinda judging me for taking glasses of different types of drinks saying he was the professional and I shouldn't mix (however it's not my first rodeo, just wanted to try different options)

Very enjoyable trip, managed to see the whales and it was an amazing experience. The catamaran is very comfortable, you can freely move around it and lie on the net in front. Unfortunately, we were motoring all the time, but all the other boats were doing it too, so it must be that way. Swimming in the ocean is pleasant, drinks and a sandwich are ok. Interestingly, alcohol is included in the price, and coffee is additionally payable.

We had an excellent cruise with White Tenerife. The crew were extremely professional and knowledgeable. We enjoyed learning about the whales and dolphins. Obviously the highlight of the cruise was watching them, and the added bonus of a loggerhead turtle. Getting time to swim in the bay was very welcome!
