Full description

Sail off the coast of southwest Tenerife on a 2-hour boat excursion looking for whales and dolphins. Sip on free drinks on board, and learn fascinating facts from your crew as you look out for marine creatures on your voyage.

Depart from Puerto Colon, traveling 2 or 3 miles from the coast where pilot whales are located. The beautiful sea mammals live permanently in the area and are seen all year around.

Sailing by catamaran, pass by fish farms, where clever dolphins are often looking for an easy meal. The crew is knowledgeable about the whales and Tenerife's other marine life.

Overall it was a nice experience. We couldn’t see any dolphin hut quite whales. It was lovely. It is a shame I couldn’t enjoy it fully as I got sea sick.. Keep in mind that you will be asked to wear mask during the trip, which is a government regulation. But it can be difficult during a warm day when you get sea sick.

Amazing trip. Well organised. Good information shared by crew. Spacious catamaran. We spotted pilot whale and dolphins. Had a stop for snorkeling as well. With all beer drinks and good sandwich lunch it was good value for money and family e kids enjoyed the most. Highly recommend eden catamaran at Tenerife.

We saw pilot whales and spotted dolphins, there were few people on the boat, so we were very comfortable and spacious. They explained curiosities about these animals, we had access to drinks and they gave us a sandwich at lunchtime. Finally we stopped at a swimming area for those who wanted to jump off the boat. All very well :)
