Tenerife: Siam Park Tickets

1. Tenerife: Siam Park Tickets

Get your adrenalin fix with this full-day ticket to Siam Park Tenerife, a thrilling theme park that recreates the old Kingdom of Siam, relocated to the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa! Fun for the entire family, the park covers 185,000-square meters of natural landscape and exquisite Oriental design. Each attraction is a unique experience in a magical setting, combining the exotic mystery of Siam with the exciting adventure of white-knuckle rides. Ascend the Tower of Power for a vertical plunge down a 91-foot (28-meter) drop. Float down a gently meandering river. Or bask in the sunshine, enjoying beautiful views from white sand beaches. Siam Park boasts many records, but the biggest and best is the exhilarating wave pool which churns up the largest manmade wave in the world, reaching up to 10-foot (3 meters) high. Ride the surf to feel the force. And don't leave without visiting the Floating Market to discover a typical Thai village, where you can enjoy a traditional Thai massage, purchase unique souvenirs, and stock up on snacks and sweets.

Tenerife: Kayaking and Snorkeling with Turtles

2. Tenerife: Kayaking and Snorkeling with Turtles

Climb aboard for a 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.

Los Cristianos: Whale and Dolphin Observation Cruise

7. Los Cristianos: Whale and Dolphin Observation Cruise

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 with the non-profit organization Sea Shepherd to ensure a safe and conscious whale watching experience. Leave Los Cristianos Harbour on the Bahriyeli boat, then set out to visit resident short-finned pilot whales and bottle nose 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. Rest assured that you will not be harming any animal you come across on your trip. As we collaborate with Sea Shepherd UK, the cruise holds higher standards than the law requires. Your trip is also helping defend the oceans as part of your ticket is donated to Sea Shepherd. The boat you'll ride on is also one of the very few boats to possess the two licences for legal whale watching, and the cruise company is also a member of the Carta de Sostenibilidad in Tenerife.

We had a great experience in both parks, the booking, communication and coach pick up were excellent and extremely convenient. This was the best value we could find for the transfer from Tenerife South to Loro Parque. We would definitely use this service again.

Joel was a very good safari guide, talked us through everything we needed to know before we started. Made sure we were comfortable before we headed off. Luckily we were able to see the dolphins and also got to snorkel with turtles, would highly recommend.

A great day out, just get their early to get the best locations for the day and enjoy the rides whilst it’s quieter

Had a great time.. would recommend booking the 10 am trip so as to avoid the scorching afternoon sun.

Great tour, great guide! Amazing to see the dolphins
