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.

If you choose the 3-hour option the catamaran will stop in the bay of Playa Espagueti and you can enjoy swimming and snorkeling off the boat.

The trip was pretty amazing. The pilot whales are the easiest to come across and we were given the opportunity to take all the videos and photos that we wanted. Luckily we did manage to come across some dolphins as we were returning. If you do get travel/seasick then don’t forget to take medication for it before getting on. Going out to sea was surprisingly ok. It was on the way back the waters were more choppy and we were going round in circles trying to sport more whales and dolphins before making it back to shore.

We saw lots of whales and dolphins on our trip which was pretty surreal. The captain and crew made sure that we got I’d say a good hour of whale watching / dolphin time if not more. They never rushed away once we saw a pod which gave us all enough time to enjoy the beauty of nature! We were sitting at the back of the boat which I think was the best spot as less crowded and unobstructed views. Only 4* not 5* just because the boat perhaps wasn’t as comfortable as the newer catamarans, but we saw lots of wildlife which was most important and would 100% go again.

El mar estaba algo movido y eso puede dificultar el avistamiento de ballenas y delfines, pero la tripulación se esforzó mucho en la búsqueda y finalmente vimos algunas ballenas pasando de lejos. Pero lo que más vimos fueron delfines, los encontramos alimentándose de un banco de peces y vimos muchos y muy cerca. Una experiencia maravillosa. La tripulación muy amable.
