Tenerife: Whale and Dolphin Tour with Underwater Views

1. Tenerife: Whale and Dolphin Tour with Underwater Views

Discover the majestic of playful whales and dolphins on this catamaran cruise from Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Choose between a 2-hour and a 3-hour tour, with the latter including lunch, drinks, and a swim stop in the waters of Playa Blanca Bay. Hop aboard your stylish catamaran, which features underwater viewing stations. Pick a spot on deck to view the many sights in-store during this tour. As you head out from the harbor, your professional crew will use their local knowledge to track the families of whales and dolphins who live near the island year-round. Hear an introduction speech from your guide, including a demonstration of safety vests.   Sail along the coastline past Adeje, Guia de Isora, and Santiago del Teide, where pods of spirited dolphins and groups of pilot whales are a common sight. If you are lucky enough to spot them, spend a few minutes below deck and observe them from a vantage point underneath the water's surface. Then, enjoy a cold beer or a glass of sangria along with lunch back on deck (if you book the 3-hour option). The boat will return to Puerto Colon and if you have booked a transfer, your bus will take you back to your pickup point.

What people are saying about Los Cristianos

The crew were fantastic and I highly recommend this trip Excellent for families food was great we saw pilot whales and we were hoping to see some dolphins but they never came out to play There’s unlimited free water juice beer and wine there is a point where they stop and you can have a swim in the sea too but it’s definitely the crew that made it as they were very attentive from start to finish there was a young girl who got very sea sick and they were there helping her out throughout All in all a great day out and im looking forward to seeing them again in VALHALA

Fantastic! Don’t wear a cap because it won’t stay on for long! We did the 2hr experience and we each had our own jet ski. I’m 56 and I wasn’t judged, didn’t feel intimidated and wasn’t expected to keep up. However, I did keep up haha. Do it! And to top it all we had 3 dolphins swim alongside us for 2 minutes. It was worth every penny! I’ll certainly do it next time we come to Tenerife

Highly recommend with friend or family. We got collected and dropped back to/from our hotel and the driver was on time and polite. We saw a beautiful sunset, swam in the sea off a beach and were fortunate enough to see lots of dolphins and whales. The staff were super friendly, and the food and drink was delicious and plentiful. I would do this trip again 100%

It was an awesome trip, I recommend it 100%. The atmosphere was always very good. Food was awesome. we saw whales and dolphins, the viking show was awesome 2 people took part in it and then we jumped into the sea and played games. The crew was awesome.

Myself and partner had an absolutely brilliant time - the Viking crew are phenomenal, attentive and made the experience so fun. We managed to see some whales and dolphins and went for a swim. I cannot recommend this experience enough, it was great!
