Full description

Join an eco-friendly, no-chase whale and dolphin cruise from Los Cristianos. Explore Tenerife South's rich marine life with the only cruise company in Spain that collaborates with the non-profit organization Sea Shepherd to ensure a safe and conscious whale watching experience.

Leave Los Cristianos Harbour on the Bahriyeli boat, then set out to visit resident short-finned pilot whales and bottle nose dolphins with the opportunity of seeing other species on their migration course.

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 a 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 a large part of the southern coast of Tenerife.

Occasionally, there is time to stop for a short swim on the coast on the way back to the Los Cristianos Harbour, however, the mission of this tour is to spend quality time with the marine life that is encountered so the swim stop may not be possible due to time restraints.

Rest assured that you will not be harming any animal you come across on your trip. As we collaborate with Sea Shepherd UK, the cruise holds higher standards than the law requires. Your trip is also helping defend the oceans as part of your ticket is donated to Sea Shepherd.

The boat you'll ride on is also one of the very few boats to possess the two licences for legal whale watching, and the cruise company is also a member of the Carta de Sostenibilidad in Tenerife.

Amazing experience, the crew takes their time to look for the animals and makes sure they are not disturbed in their natural habitat. We had plenty of time to enjoy watching bottle nose and spotted dolphins and pilot whales. The guide could speak Spanish, English, German, and French. She was very passionate about protecting ocean mammals and seeing them in their natural habitat rather than in captivity. As a bonus, the money you pay for the cruise goes to Sea Shepherd, a non-profit organisation that protects marine life. I highly recommend this experience.

The super friendly guide, very attentive, explains many things. It really is respectful of animals and the environment. We were able to see pilot whales with their young and dolphins for a long time. An experience that I would repeat without a doubt. The boat moves if there are waves but nothing that cannot be solved with a seasickness pill...it was great!

Whale and Dolphin Cruise with Sea Shepard. It doesn't get any better than that. The tour was in 4 languages and very informative. Questions were gladly answered. Price performance is great. If you want, you can get drinks and small snacks on board. And most importantly, the animals are respected!
