Snorkeling and Kayaking with Turtles

1. Snorkeling and Kayaking with Turtles

Climb aboard for a 2.5-hour 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.

The shows are incredible at loro Park. Best water park , all packed in a small area. Instructions on what to wear foot wear can be clearer. Just be mindful there is no transport for siam Park, apart from their own buses with a local collection drop off.

The Capital are supper nice. They also patiently explained everything for us. Like the habits for dolphins and whales. And luckily we saw them with their help. The snacks on the boat also are tasty. Conclude: excellent experience. Really recommend.

Everything was well organised, the lunch was perfect and local in a great setting. We got enough time to discover and the sides and the information was nice. I would recommend this tour!

Even though the weather was miserable and we didn’t get to see much wildlife, the guides were excellent and it was an enjoyable ride on the ocean waves nonetheless

Both Siam Park and Loro Parque are excellent places to visit. The kids loved Siam Park. Get your guide kept us informed and the transfers were pretty smooth.
