Full description

Go on a search for pilot whales and bottlenose dolphins on this three-hour cruise from Los Gigantes. Keep an eye out for all kinds of marine life, and make a stop for swimming and snorkeling in a secluded location while your lunch is prepared on the boat. Leave the port of Los Gigantes in order to begin the search for pilot whales and bottlenose dolphins. Snap photos of the beautiful Teide Volcano, which can be seen on the journey, as well as the island of La Gomera and the rural park of Teno.

Spot different cetacean species on the whale and dolphin watching experience, like bottlenose dolphins and pilot whales, and other species like loggerhead sea turtles who are also native to the area, along with fin or sperm whales depending on the season.

Finish the whale watching portion of the tour and then move on to the cliff of the giants, vertical rocky cliffs rising to a height of around 600 meters, and make a stop for 30 minutes at the base of the cliffs where there is a cove perfect for swimming or snorkeling.

Enjoy a delicious appetizer with fresh fruit and drinks after swimming and snorkeling. Rest as you enjoy the appetizer before returning to the port along the cliff.

    Good experience, everything well organized. We couldn't see whales due to the wind and rough seas. We saw dolphins, although at first it was difficult, but our skipper "Toño" made a great effort for us to see them and he succeeded. They offer you a much appreciated aperitif. I said a good experience and a very good job of 'Toño' who explains everything to you. Very happy and grateful.

    It was great! It was a small boat, few people on it. You have to take off your shoes, the waves are very strong and you may be seasick and get wet. Because of the wind, we couldn't see any whales, but the dolphins and the landscape were worth it!

    The trip was really nice. We could actually see whales and dolphins. The boat captain was really cool. Unfortunately, swimming wasn't possible because the sea was too choppy. However, one should take "lunch" out of the description. It should be called snacks and drinks. There was a small bowl of chips, cheese, and Iberico ham. With the drinks you got two cans of coke, fanta or beer. Value for money could be better.
