Full description

Dive in and explore the crystal waters along Tenerife's southeast coast. Swim amongst tropical and sub-tropical fish and spot species that you can't find anywhere else in the world. Learn about the world below the waves from your professional instructor.

The tour leaves from Abades and heads to the marine protected area, a sheltered bay with calm waters that are suitable for all swimmers. Explore the multiple reefs in the area and even enjoy the beach – a relaxing alternative to the touristy resorts in the south.

Unlike scuba diving, you don't need any certification or training to snorkel, and your guide will be there to help you every step of the way. Even seniors and non-swimmers are encouraged to give it a try. Before diving in, you will be given a safety briefing to know what to expect and how to interact with marine wildlife.

We were Raffaela and Rob who were fantastic! We would highly recommend and would even do a tour with them again! They lead us through the reefs and to see a turtle who was chilling on the ocean floor. We had a 6 year old who hadn't used a snorkel successfully before and one guide was with her throughout. We trusted them fully with our children and they had a excellent disposition with all of us. We were so surprised by the diversity of fish and the guided experience. The kit was excellent and it was our first time in full wet suits which made a significant difference for being in the water. They were with us for much longer than 50min and this was great value. The area is protected and had a less developed/rustic feel which we loved. Thanks again!

Die Schnorcheltour mit Raffaella und Ron war genial: wir waren eine kleine Gruppe, die beiden haben die komplette Ausrüstung bereitgestellt, alles super erklärt, die und sich rührend um uns gekümmert. Das Tauchrevier war toll und wir konnten sehr viele Fische und auch eine Schildkröte sehen. Am Ende waren wir auch recht lange unterwegs und Raffaella hat sogar ein Video unter Wasser von uns gemacht, das wir am Ende kostenlos bekommen haben. Snorkel Tenerife Exkursions und die Bucht kann ich nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen!!!.

Es war toll. Raffaella und Ron sind super freundliche Schnorchel-Guides, die perfekt vorbereitet waren. Wegen meiner fortgeschrittenen Schwangerschaft haben mir beide bei allem geholfen und waren super rücksichtsvoll. Im Wasser hatte ich eine kurze Panik und Ron war ganz lieb und ruhig und hat dafür gesorgt, dass ich mich wieder beruhigen konnte- ich habe mich sehr sicher gefühlt. Wir haben sehr viele Fische und sogar einen Rochen gesehen. Die Stelle zum Schnorcheln ist wunderschön. Wir sind super begeistert und kommen gern wieder.
