From Los Cristianos: No-Chase Whale and Dolphin Cruise

1. From Los Cristianos: No-Chase Whale and Dolphin Cruise

Join an eco-friendly, no-chase whale and dolphin cruise from Los Cristianos. Explore Tenerife South's marine life with the only cruise company in Spain that collaborates with the Sea Shepherd UK and the Dolphin Project non-profit organizations to ensure a safe and conscious whale watching experience. Depart the Los Cristianos harbor on a boat that can go further than a 3-mile radius due to the qualified captains onboard, which is highly advantageous to spot larger whales and other species. Set out to visit resident short-finned pilot whales and bottlenose dolphins as well as other species. Fin whales, sperm whales, blue whales, and even orcas can be seen on your tour. Keep an eye out for migrating turtles, tuna, and even sharks.  Listen to your guide tell you about the ecosystems of the region. Learn about the habits of the resident dolphins in front of the cliffs of Los Cristianos. As you cruise, enjoy the view of Mount Teide and the southern coast of Tenerife. Feel comfortable knowing that the whales and dolphins are always put first. To make sure that they are not disturbed, they are not forced to dive, an important part of ethical whale watching. Observe them in your natural environment and see how they naturally behave.

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.

We’ve been there in December 2022 and it has been a great experience! The pick point at the port was very easy to find and the crew was very professional and friendly. The guide was very skilled and came to us to better explain about the different species of resident whales and dolphins and the organization. We also liked the fact that they are the only company in Spain collaborating with sea shepherds Uk and the dolphin project a nn-profit organization supporting a conscious and safe whales and dolphins watching. I highly recommend this experience.

Lots of dolphins and whales spotted. The captains took very good account of the space that the whales and dolphins need. They were not disturbed by the drill. Very good explanation, even in Dutch!

Excellent activity, we were able to see what was announced, only B mol, there must have been explanations in French which we did not have while on the bridge we were a good 20 of French.

Staff helpful polite on land and on the boat very nolidgable saw lots off Wales and delphine well worth the money

Great experience with great guide that speaks many languages. We saw both whales and dolphins.
