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.

Great experience that I recommend to everyone. We saw whales and dolphins, were subtly alerted to sightings, and received concise explanations about the animals and the island. The engines were switched off in the vicinity of the animals and there was no "hunting" or the like - so very good interaction with nature. I couldn't fault anything!

We had an absolute fantastic time! I took my 80 year old nan and sister and we loved every minute of it! We saw dolphins and pilot whales even one had a calf with them and they stayed with us pretty much for the whole time we were out there, I will certainly be going on this excursion again!

I went on this with my family and it was absolutely amazing! We saw both whales and dolphines and the whole experience was beautiful! The stop was great although far to hard to swim with young kids and behind the boat is very choppy waters, otherwise amazing trip, would definitely recommend doing it
