1. Los Gigantes: Whales and Dolphin Watching Cruise with Lunch
Go on a search for pilot whales and bottlenose dolphins on this three-hour cruise from Los Gigantes. Keep an eye out for all kinds of marine life, and make a stop for swimming and snorkeling in a secluded location while your lunch is prepared on the boat. Leave the port of Los Gigantes in order to begin the search for pilot whales and bottlenose dolphins. Snap photos of the beautiful Teide Volcano, which can be seen on the journey, as well as the island of La Gomera and the rural park of Teno. Spot different cetacean species on the whale and dolphin watching experience, like bottlenose dolphins and pilot whales, and other species like loggerhead sea turtles who are also native to the area, along with fin or sperm whales depending on the season. Finish the whale watching portion of the tour and then move on to the cliff of the giants, vertical rocky cliffs rising to a height of around 600 meters, and make a stop for 30 minutes at the base of the cliffs where there is a cove perfect for swimming or snorkeling. Enjoy a delicious appetizer with fresh fruit and drinks after swimming and snorkeling. Rest as you enjoy the appetizer before returning to the port along the cliff.
