Full description

Join an eco-friendly, no-chase whale and dolphin cruise from Los Cristianos. Explore Tenerife South's rich marine life with the only cruise company in Spain that collaborates and is recognized by the non-profit organization Sea Shepherd to ensure a safe and conscious whale watching experience.

Depart Los Cristianos Harbour on a specially-certified boat that can go out further than a 3-mile radius due to the highly qualified captains onboard, which is highly advantageous as if the larger whales or other species are spotted. Initially setting out to visit resident short-finned pilot whales and bottlenose dolphins with the opportunity of seeing other species on their migration course.

Fin whales, sperm whales, blue whales, and even orcas can be seen on your tour. Keep an eye out for migrating turtles, tuna, and even sharks.

Listen to a guide tell you about the ecosystems of the region. Learn about the habits of the resident dolphins in front of the cliffs of Los Cristianos. As you cruise, enjoy the view of Mount Teide and a large part of the southern coast of Tenerife.

Occasionally, there is time to stop for a short swim on the coast on the way back to the Los Cristianos Harbour, however, the mission of this tour is to spend quality time with the marine life that is encountered so the swim stop may not be possible due to time restraints, being honest, there is not usually time to do this on a two-hour tour, and time with the wildlife is greatly compromised, which cannot be an option on this tour.

Feel comfortable knowing that the whales and dolphins are always put first. To make sure that they are not disturbed, they are not forced to dive, an important part of ethical whale watching.

Spend time with them, observe them in your natural environment, and how they naturally behave. Embrace the excitement of knowing they are not harmed as they come close to the boat due to their beautiful and curious nature.

Rest assured that you will not be harming or bothering any animal you come across on your trip. Your trip is also helping defend the oceans as part of your ticket is donated to Sea Shepherd.

There was a delay of one hour for our trip due to technical problems on the boat. Apart from this the trip was very pleasant and the guide very informative. We overall enjoyed it and thought it was very good value for money as other similar trips were charging far more for the same experience.

It was a great trip. The team on board were very informative and spoke a number of languages which ensured everyone could learn about the pilot whales and dolphins. We were lucky to see three pilot whales, including a young pilot whale. I thought it was great that the team kept the distance from the whales and let them approach the boat if they wanted to.

We were thrilled, have also seen whales and dolphins. At the end we were all able to jump off the boat in a small bay. So make sure to wear swimwear. Drinks and Pringles were available to buy on board. But you should have a sea festival, we had strong seas and some people got sick.
