Full description

Set sail in the Atlantic on an unforgettable eco-friendly dolphin and whale watching boat day trip in Tenerife. Get all food and drinks included onboard, plus the chance to have a swim whilst at sea. Start your marine adventure by meeting your crew at the dock for a quick safety briefing. Then, set sail towards ideal dolphin and whale watching hotspots on a catamaran equipped with fuel-efficient technology designed to greatly reduce its carbon footprint. Time to get out your phone or camera while cruising the Teno-Rasca Whale Sanctuary, part of Tenerife’s official Special Conservation Zone that protects vulnerable marine wildlife and habitats. Enjoy the views from the boat as you pass beaches such as Playa de las Américas and Playa de los Cristianos on the way. Even spot the famous Mount Teide from the water on clear days. Spot dolphins and whales in their natural habitat, safe in the knowledge that you are also simultaneously respecting it. Benefit from your crew’s expert commentary and underwater audio equipment to bring the sounds of the ocean onto your deck. Even enjoy some time to swim in the Atlantic waters before heading back to shore. On the 3-hour tour, you will be served drinks and a small sandwich.

If you want even more time at sea, book the extended option that includes an onboard lunch with rice and chicken. Vegetarian options are also available. Gain 2 extra hours with the "extended" option to explore more parts of the coastline, including the impressive cliffs at Los Gigantes, and the exclusive bay at Masca Beach that once served as a pirate hideaway.

The most amazing boat trip ever! We were lucky enough to see both dolphins and whales. The 3 members of staff onboard were so friendly and kind, they were also very educated about the sea and animals. We had the opportunity to jump off the boat, which was also amazing, the food was 10/10 and we had unlimited drinks, such as beer and soft drinks. Also a glass of processco each. It was such a relaxing and memorable trip, would definitely recommend for the price!

The catamaran trip was great! We got to see sleeping pilot whales, dolphins and even a turtle. The crew was very mindful of the animals and tried to disturb them as little as possible by turning off the engine and advising everyone on board to be as quiet as possible. We even got enough time for a swim off the playa de los hippies. The crew was very nice and helpful when they explained facts about the animals and the area as well.

We made our own way by car. Make sure you leave enough time to find parking space. There are a couple of car parks nearby and reasonable approx €7 for 6hrs parking. The boat trip itself well organised and a great friendly knowledgable team on board. Extremely clean catamaran. Wasn’t overcrowded. Food was questionable, so if you don’t like rice (flavoured) with/without chicken would recommend you take your own. Fruit was banana but as they are grown locally it helps the locals. Soft sparking drinks were Lidl kind and not branded. Only hot drink is black coffee (pod machine) which costs €2. We saw pilot whale pods, dolphins, turtles and a dancing fish that was soon food for the swooping seagull! Great that we were not permitted to swim with the dolphins as in a conservation area and helps preserve their environment. Main reason why we chose this trip. Captain will only allow you to swim if safe to do so (weather permitting) in the correct dedicates places. Would definitely do again!
