Full description

Climb aboard for a 2.5-hour kayaking adventure in Tenerife and get up close and personal with dolphins and turtles in their natural environment. Observe the amazing creatures from a vessel that does not frighten them or disturb their natural habitat.

Be surrounded by pods of up to 30 dolphins that sometimes put on a show by jumping high into the air. Home to up to 5 different species of dolphins, including bottlenose dolphins, the waters just off the island’s coast are ideal to marvel at these lovable creatures.

While the bottlenose dolphins are the easiest to spot, other species inhabit the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, including rough-toothed dolphins, striped dolphins, and common dolphins.

As wild animals, views cannot be guaranteed, but there is a 95% chance that you will encounter the animals on your trip. Get an optional swimming break and snorkel with turtles and bull rays in a bay only accessible by kayak as a bonus.

Usually, within a few minutes, curious turtles arrive and get very close, swimming around and in between you. Also, bull rays regularly glide elegantly along the sea bed underneath you.

    We had two guides, David and Jon. Both spoke English well and made the whole experience really enjoyable. We saw about 10 dolphins and lots of other sea life when snorkelling. The best bit; they take photos of you and the sea life (including the dolphins under the water using Go Pro cameras) which they send to you for *free*! Forget any of the other companies that charge €15 for photos, just go with these guys, you won’t regret it!

    We had a nice, very hard-working guide, and although we had no kayaking experience, everything worked very well. We were lucky enough to see a dolphin and turtle in the wild and the highlight of our vacation was definitely snorkeling with a large turtle. The guide took many photos of all the participants while kayaking as well as of the turtle (also a video), which he made available to us free of charge via email link. We can highly recommend it. A little tip: take something against seasickness with you in case of an emergency.

    La actividad no está mal, lo único que no me gustó tanto, es el avistamiento de delfines dentro de una zona de piscicultura a escasos metros de la costa. Las vistas con el kayak son espectaculares. La inmersión en el agua duró menos de media hora pero por suerte vimos un par de tortugas.
