Full description
Embark on a 3-hour whale watching trip from Puerto Colon, sailing 2-3 miles from the coast to an area where pilot whales are often sighted. The marvelous sea mammals live here permanently, and excursions report sightings all through the year. Sailing by catamaran, you pass by fish farms, where clever dolphins are often seen looking for an easy meal. Learn from the boat’s crew, who are very knowledgeable about the whales and other marine life. As you continue on, you’ll hear about huge squid that can grow up to 40 feet in length, and live between Tenerife and La Gomera. Toward the end of the tour, the catamaran will stop in the natural bay of Playa Espagueti for you to enjoy a swim and snorkel off the boat.

It was a lovely experience. I was contacted a day before my booking that the weather might not be good on the scheduled date so I went a day before. Boat ride was smooth. Enough drinks to go round and surplus. We saw the whales and some dolphins too. Lots of opportunities to take pictures and videos

Amazing trip, great crew! Had to follow COVID rules but had a great time seeing both whales and dolphins! They also offered free refreshments and a little sandwich in case we got hungry. Unfortunately it's illegal to snorkel with the whales and dolphins but we went to a nice spot by the coast to do that part of the journey. 3 hours is perfect to do all this.

Very nice

It was a very nice trip. The 2 boys on the boat were extremely friendly and very attentive. After about 10 minutes we saw the first turtles and shortly afterwards a group of dolphins with their young. The animals were not hunted but stopped at a healthy distance and the animals passed you. Unfortunately there were no elections to be seen that day. We got 4x drinks on board and sandwiches. The bay was really nice where we were swimming and you could also snorkel very well. Can only recommend the trip to everyone.
