  • Tenerife: Whale & Dolphin Watching with Drinks and Snacks

    1. Tenerife: Whale & Dolphin Watching with Drinks and Snacks

    Let the wind whip your hair back and forth as you gaze out across the clear azure waters of Southern Tenerife in the Canary Islands on a 3-hour cruise. Along with a maximum of 11 other cruise mates, you will have plenty of space on board a luxury yacht to see the beauty of nature along the coastline and in the water. The area around the Canary Islands has petitioned to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and even without the official certification, you will soon discover why this part of the world is so beloved. Look out for dolphins and pilot whales playing joyfully in the wake of your ship, and look up for the bird life high above. This is nature at its best, and your captain will be sure to point out the most populated dolphin and whale spots along the way. If you have never had a chance to experience these magnificent creatures up close, it is an experience you will never forget. ...

    The trip was fantastic, the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Our Captain (Dani) was great!!! seeing the Whales was amazing!!!!

    This experience was really good. Really Nice people, Nice food And drinks, we saw whales and daulphins. I think the submarine part is not that useful (you can’t see anything but water when Boat is on movement, and when Boat is on stop you can only see grey little fishes)

    Nice sunset and stargazing. The stargazing assumed no previous knowledge, the guide helpfully pointed to stars and constellations. The sky was amazing. Throughout the tour, the guide was knowledgeable and funny. I expected more walking and exploring in the national park area. Glad they recommended warm clothing.

    A must do in Tenerife. This was an amazing experience. Inés and Gustavo are great hosts and Félix and Ronald 20-year experienced paragliding pilots. At the beginning I was a bit hesitant to book the activity as I did not have experience with paragliding before, and I did not entirely like the idea of walking off a mountain. But it turned out to be extremely easy, safe and stress-free. The views are stunning, and the take off and landing are so easy that even my grandma could do it. It's just amazing to feel like a bird for 20 min. The way up the hill in the van made me a bit dizzy, if you get dizzy often I recommend to take sick motion pills. The flight is smooth and fresh. Afterwards you can get the pictures and videos of the flight from Overfly if you pay extra. During take off and landing you are the one filming, make sure to put the camara straight if you want to look a bit agile under the scenes.

    Good tour, but we were expecting more stops and more walk. We had only 4 stops (without stops for restrooms) for some photos and very long trip by bus. The guide was too interested in some groups, was not very communicable with all of our group. Too much languages in one trip, we were tired of hearing them all in one speaking.

Great experience of pilot whale watching and snorkeling. Plenty to see. Food and drinks included. Staff very friendly and made the trip even more worthwhile. Pick up and drop off included. Used the sail when we had good wind so a lot of fun in one experience.

We had a great time, we saw many pilot whales that accompanied us on our journey, we snorkelled and saw many fish, thanks to Salvador and Belen for everything, the 5 of us as a family and another couple were a great luxury

Great fun, a lot of information and different place to see. Every point of tour was different - we could see all types of microclimats in Teneriffe. Teide and Masca has the best views!

Everything was well organized from start to finish. The guide provided extensive information. I can and will recommend the tour to others.

Great experience! All attractions were very well organized.
