Full description

Discover the majestic of playful whales and dolphins on this catamaran cruise from Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Choose between a 2-hour and a 3-hour tour, with the latter including lunch, drinks, and a swim stop in the waters of Playa Blanca Bay.

Hop aboard your stylish catamaran, which features underwater viewing stations. Pick a spot on deck to view the many sights in-store during this tour. As you head out from the harbor, your professional crew will use their local knowledge to track the families of whales and dolphins who live near the island year-round. Hear an introduction speech from your guide, including a demonstration of safety vests.   Sail along the coastline past Adeje, Guia de Isora, and Santiago del Teide, where pods of spirited dolphins and groups of pilot whales are a common sight. If you are lucky enough to spot them, spend a few minutes below deck and observe them from a vantage point underneath the water's surface. Then, enjoy a cold beer or a glass of sangria along with lunch back on deck (if you book the 3-hour option). The boat will return to Puerto Colon and if you have booked a transfer, your bus will take you back to your pickup point.

The weather was excellent so the day started brilliant. We drove our car onto the port car park - which charged a reasonable 6.50euro. The boat sailed out to the sea then after about 20 mins, we came across the first of the Dolphins. W6.50euroe took loads of pictures. We then sailed on further & came across the whales. Customers were able to take plenty of pictures. all in all an excellent day & well worth the money. The boat had food & drink for sale & the prices were surprisingly low - shop prices.

Great tour with actually lots of dolphins, 2-3 pilot whales, 1 sea turtle and as a bonus there was even a fin whale - the crew speaks German (and Spanish, Italian, Spanish, Dutch and French) and tries very hard to find and show animals in the sea , without annoying the animals

A good value trip to see the whales - spent quite a while watching a pod of Piloy whales, including mothers with calves. The underwater windows are excellent to get a different view of the whales - though I couldn't stay down there too long as it made me feel queasy. Minor quibbles = could have done without the "holiday" music on the way back, but at least it was quiet whilst actually watching the whales. Also could have done without pushy touting for tips at the end. But all in all, a very good trip.
