Out of the 80 known cetacean species, about 20 have been observed in the waters of the Canary Islands: it is thanks to a year-long temperate climate, warm waters and the deep seafloors that these islands attract so many marine mammals. And the south coast of Tenerife is one of the best places to go whale and dolphin watching. On board an eco-friendly and certified “Blue Boat” catamaran, with a small group of maximum 11 people and an experienced staff, you will set sail in the Atlantic on an memorable dolphin and whale watching boat trip in Tenerife. Get all food and drinks included onboard, plus the chance to have a swim or snorkel in one of the bays along the coast.
Program of the Tenerife boat tour with whale and dolphin watching:
- Meet at 10:00am or at 1:15pm at the departure point in Puerto Colón. Here you will meet the crew and board a luxury catamaran.
- After a quick safety briefing, you will set sail towards the ideal dolphin and whale watching hotspots, such as the Teno-Rasca Whale Sanctuary, part of Tenerife’s official Special Conservation Zone about 3.4 miles off the coast, established to ensure the long-term survival of the most vulnerable animals and natural habitats. This area is home to up to 22 different species of cetaceans, of which the all year residents are the Pilot Whale and Bottlenose Dolphin, as well as sea turtles, like the loggerhead (caretta caretta) and the green turtle. You will be able to admire these wonderful creatures up close in their natural habitat, listening to the crew’s expert commentary and safe in the knowledge that you are having a sustainable and responsible navigation experience, guaranteed by the “Blue Boat” flag that certifies the local operator’s professional authorization to carry out whale and dolphin watching.
- We will then continue to a quiet bay where we will stop for swimming and snorkeling, as well as to enjoy an aperitif with assorted sandwiches and drinks.
- At the end of the boat trip, around 1.15pm or 4:30pm, you will return to the port.
