Full description
First, choose from an optional pickup from your hotel in Santa Cruz de Tenerife or make your own way to the meeting point at the port. The skipper will welcome you aboard the Cruz del Sur, a spacious 14-meter yacht. Listen as he explains the itinerary of the excursion and gives some information about safety measures. Then, set off to explore the whale and dolphin sighting area off the coast of Tenerife.  As you sail, keep your eyes peeled for these wonderful marine creatures. If you're lucky, you may even see some turtles. After spotting the wildlife, approach the coast and anchor the boat. Enjoy the opportunity to bathe or snorkel in the crystal-clear waters whilst the crew prepares lunch. Snorkeling equipment is provided.  For lunch, enjoy a delicious spread of typical, local food. Later, return to the port, sailing along the coastline and admiring the protected natural site of Punta de Rasca. Arrive at the port and bid farewell to the crew. Either your tour concludes, or you can benefit from the return transfer back to your hotel by selecting the option with hotel pickup and drop-off.

The tour fully met our expectations. The two crew members on board were nice, funny, "easy-going" fellows and the tour group was comparatively small. Unfortunately, we were only able to observe one "classic" dolphin from afar, but many pilot whales for a longer period of time from very close by. We also had enough time for snorkeling, as there were some colorful fish to see. But of course it is forbidden to disembark where the whales are holding out with their young, so the skipper was very strict and reprimanded another skipper who had allowed his people on board to do this. Respect the animals!

We had a wonderful time! The skippers were very knowledgeable! We had the chance to see dolphins and Whales which was such a magical experience! We felt slightly sea sick but were helped by the skippers to feel at ease, they even offered to give us a free lift back to our hotel! I would recommend this tour to everyone going to Tenerife!

I had some questions about the tour and they were answered very well in advance! The contact went great! Once on board, the great experience began. The crew went above and beyond for you and made sure everything was to your liking. The whales/dolphins were super close. In short, a great trip! Once in a lifetime experience!
