Full description

Discover the majestic of playful whales and dolphins on this catamaran cruise from Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Choose between a 2-hour and a 3-hour tour, with the latter including lunch, drinks, and a swim stop in the waters of Playa Blanca Bay.

Hop aboard your stylish catamaran, which features underwater viewing stations. Pick a spot on deck to view the many sights in-store during this tour. As you head out from the harbor, your professional crew will use their local knowledge to track the families of whales and dolphins who live near the island year-round. Hear an introduction speech from your guide, including a demonstration of safety vests.   Sail along the coastline past Adeje, Guia de Isora, and Santiago del Teide, where pods of spirited dolphins and groups of pilot whales are a common sight. If you are lucky enough to spot them, spend a few minutes below deck and observe them from a vantage point underneath the water's surface. Then, enjoy a cold beer or a glass of sangria along with lunch back on deck (if you book the 3-hour option). The boat will return to Puerto Colon and if you have booked a transfer, your bus will take you back to your pickup point.

Very nice 2-hour sea trip. You can see a family of pilot whales as well as dolphins. The Atlantic Ocean is very different from the Mediterranean Sea so if you suffer from seasickness refrain. The crew on board speaks several languages () and provides you with many explanations. To do without hesitation!!!!!

A great boat trip. It was big and busy, but that didn't matter. The narrator was really good. Has explained everything in X languages and also clearly understandable. They also went out of their way to see dolphins and whales. We had a few dolphins and grint whales. The whales were almost right next to the boat which made the experience even better. People who were seasick were well taken care of. Finally we went swimming in a beautiful bay. All in all a very successful trip.

Oh this company is so wonderful I tried my best to make it on time but due to the buses being late I couldn’t make it I contacted the company and they let me know i could do the next sailing and just pay the difference, such a relief I’m also a solo female traveler and sometimes doing activities like this can be a bit daunting but i did not feel that way Such a beautiful day and the staff on the boat were so very lovely
