Full description
Climb aboard for a 2.5-hour kayaking adventure in Tenerife and get up close and personal with dolphins and turtles in their natural environment. Observe the amazing creatures from a vessel that does not frighten them or disturb their natural habitat. Experience the extraordinary sensation of being surrounded by pods of up to 30 dolphins that sometimes put on a show by jumping high into the air! Home to up to 5 different species of dolphins, including bottlenose dolphins, the waters just off the coast of the island are the perfect spot to marvel at these lovable creatures.  While the bottlenose dolphins are the easiest to spot, other species inhabit the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, including rough-toothed dolphins, striped dolphins and common dolphins. As wild animals, views cannot be guaranteed, but there is a 95% chance that you will encounter the animals on your trip. Get an optional swimming break and snorkel with turtles and bull rays in a bay only accessible by kayak as a bonus. Usually within a few minutes curious turtles arrive and get very close, swimming around and in between you. Also the bull rays regularly glide elegantly along the sea bed underneath you.

Amazing morning swimming with the turtles!! We got to see two they came so close to you! Was awesome! Carrying the kayaks down to the beach wasn’t to bad as they are on wheels! You can take small snacks and water with you they give you a waterproof bucket thing to take on the kayak with you! The tour guide was super respectful of the sea and full of information

Everything was wonderful. I was alone and I was afraid I would not be able to do it but the guide David made everything very easy. On the way I saw a dolphin and turtles and when I snorkeled I swam with a turtle. Everything was wonderful! I highly recommend!

Te vroeg aanwezig, maar door te laat koming van ander groepje met een groep eerder meegegaan. Na de kajaks naar de zee gebracht te hebben, zijn we begonnen. Al na 20 minuten kwamen we de eerste dolfijnen tegen en snel daarna ook schildpadden. Tijdens het snorkelen helaas geen schildpadden meer gezien, maar deze trip was het zeker waard. De kajak tocht is mega leuk en we zijn zeker 3 uur op het water geweest. Het boeken waard!
