Full description

Set sail in the Atlantic on an unforgettable eco-friendly dolphin and whale watching boat day trip in Tenerife. Get all food and drinks included onboard, plus the chance to have a swim whilst at sea. Start your marine adventure by meeting your crew at the dock for a quick safety briefing. Then, set sail towards ideal dolphin and whale watching hotspots on a catamaran equipped with fuel-efficient technology designed to greatly reduce its carbon footprint. Time to get out your phone or camera while cruising the Teno-Rasca Whale Sanctuary, part of Tenerife’s official Special Conservation Zone that protects vulnerable marine wildlife and habitats. Enjoy the views from the boat as you pass beaches such as Playa de las Américas and Playa de los Cristianos on the way. Even spot the famous Mount Teide from the water on clear days. Spot dolphins and whales in their natural habitat, safe in the knowledge that you are also simultaneously respecting it. Benefit from your crew’s expert commentary and underwater audio equipment to bring the sounds of the ocean onto your deck. Even enjoy some time to swim in the Atlantic waters before heading back to shore. On the 3-hour tour, you will be served drinks and a small sandwich.

If you want even more time at sea, book the extended option that includes an onboard lunch with rice and chicken. Vegetarian options are also available. Gain 2 extra hours with the "extended" option to explore more parts of the coastline, including the impressive cliffs at Los Gigantes, and the exclusive bay at Masca Beach that once served as a pirate hideaway.

The whole crew were friendly and very helpful. The catamaran was spacious with plenty of seats and separate toilets. It was lovely to see the pilot whale's and even had one right at the front of the boat! Then it was off to another spot, where we were lucky enough to spot the top of an orca and a large whale (forgot the name). The stop at Los Gigantos was amazing and here you could swim if you wanted to. Plenty of free drinks there and back (we had the extended tour) and the chicken and rice was very nice. On the way back, the boat turned into a little party boat with people dancing and having a good time. Thoroughly enjoyed it

It was a fantastic trip. We saw whales and Dolphins. But the best part were the staff. They looked after us so well and when I told them it was my wife’s birthday they opened champagne for the whole number of guests which were more than 50. It made the day so special for us. Will recommend this experience to all I know. Thanks once again for a very memorable trip. God bless you.
