Full description

Set sail in the Atlantic on an unforgettable eco-friendly dolphin and whale watching boat day trip in Tenerife. Get all food and drinks included onboard, plus the chance to have a swim whilst at sea. Start your marine adventure by meeting your crew at the dock for a quick safety briefing. Then, set sail towards ideal dolphin and whale watching hotspots on a catamaran equipped with fuel-efficient technology designed to greatly reduce its carbon footprint. Time to get out your phone or camera while cruising the Teno-Rasca Whale Sanctuary, part of Tenerife’s official Special Conservation Zone that protects vulnerable marine wildlife and habitats. Enjoy the views from the boat as you pass beaches such as Playa de las Américas and Playa de los Cristianos on the way. Even spot the famous Mount Teide from the water on clear days. Spot dolphins and whales in their natural habitat, safe in the knowledge that you are also simultaneously respecting it. Benefit from your crew’s expert commentary and underwater audio equipment to bring the sounds of the ocean onto your deck. Even enjoy some time to swim in the Atlantic waters before heading back to shore. On the 3-hour tour, you will be served drinks and a small sandwich.

If you want even more time at sea, book the extended option that includes an onboard lunch with rice and chicken. Vegetarian options are also available. Gain 2 extra hours with the "extended" option to explore more parts of the coastline, including the impressive cliffs at Los Gigantes, and the exclusive bay at Masca Beach that once served as a pirate hideaway.

really enjoyed this experience. the crew were very friendly and helpful and ensured we found the best sites to see dolphins and whales. there was free sandwiches and soft drinks. i felt a bit queasy as the boat did rock from side to side so beware if you suffer with sea sickness . so glad we booked it

Great trip , saw a family of pilot whales . Everyone seemed to have a great time , I think I was the only one who was extremely sea sick so I couldn’t enjoy the snacks and drinks , we were offered soft drinks , beer , wine and later on given Prosecco as it was someone’s birthday (I don’t know if they always give Prosecco) the snacks were bananas and a ham and cheese sandwich . I think they should offer plain cheese sandwiches too as a lot of people don’t eat pork / are veggie but that’s my only criticism. Great trip with a super sweet friendly lively crew . Glad we did it though I was laying horizontal most of the time trying not to be sick .

Had a great day on the catamaran. The staff were very attentive with drinks and food. Food was a cheese and ham sandwich, banana and soft drinks or wine/beer. Lots of space for everyone, and everyone had their own seat. Plenty of time to watch the whales. Around half an hour of snorkelling as well. Definitely recommend it.
