Begin your tour with departure from the pickup point early in the morning. From there, head toward the capital of the island, Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

From here, move on to the next stop, San Cristóbal de la Laguna, the first city founded in Tenerife after the conquest of the island in July 1496. No city on the island of Tenerife preserves the colonial past so well and in so little space. Take a walking tour through the old cobbled streets, and hear about the history and architecture of the city and its stately homes and churches. Next, reboard the bus to head to the next stop. On your way to Teide National Park, stop at some viewpoints in the mountains to take some pictures of the breathtaking landscape before continuing to the volcano.

Spend 2 hours here to enjoy the wealth of fauna and flora, as there are a large number of species exclusive to the park. Walk around and discover more about the park's formation and the life in its surroundings. After this, return to the south after a day full of natural landscapes.

For everyone who wants to drive relaxed across the sea and does not want to ostensibly chase after the animals. Wonderful guides, absolutely competent, on the way in 3 languages and at the end also saw a group of pilot whales ....

Had high hopes for this trip, and exceeded them. Fantastic would thoroughly recommend. Crew were very welcoming and had a superb knowledge and understanding of the whales, dolphins and much more.

Super nice tour, saw a lot of animals. The team knows a lot and explains a lot to you. The service was great. This tour is worth it, we would do it again

Brilliant morning. Informative guides who looked after us well. We tried to sail but there wasn’t enough wind. Snorkelling was fun

We had a great time with a very caring team! Great value for money, I highly recommend this small group outing!
