Full description
First, choose from an optional pickup from your hotel in Santa Cruz de Tenerife or make your own way to the meeting point at the port. The skipper will welcome you aboard the Cruz del Sur, a spacious 14-meter yacht. Listen as he explains the itinerary of the excursion and gives some information about safety measures. Then, set off to explore the whale and dolphin sighting area off the coast of Tenerife.  As you sail, keep your eyes peeled for these wonderful marine creatures. If you're lucky, you may even see some turtles. After spotting the wildlife, approach the coast and anchor the boat. Enjoy the opportunity to bathe or snorkel in the crystal-clear waters whilst the crew prepares lunch. Snorkeling equipment is provided.  For lunch, enjoy a delicious spread of typical, local food. Later, return to the port, sailing along the coastline and admiring the protected natural site of Punta de Rasca. Arrive at the port and bid farewell to the crew. Either your tour concludes, or you can benefit from the return transfer back to your hotel by selecting the option with hotel pickup and drop-off.

Fantastic day out, very knowledgable team. I chose this tour because it was 'local' with a small capacity and was earlier in the morning. The boat was great and there was only a few people, no crowding. We were the only boat out so we saw lots of Whales and flying fish, stopped for a swim and had some delicious food and drink! Perfect day out, thank you guys!

The tour exceeded our expectations. We saw a lot of animals and the team was super nice. Together with 4 other couples, the yacht was not overcrowded and it was a very nice experience. The food was also very tasty and the swimming break was in a bay with wonderfully calm and clear water. Overall, definitely to be recommended!

We had a blast. The boat is very clean and pretty. The staff are very pleasant, human and welcoming. Far from the boats with 50 people on them. The moment is intimate, we saw whales easily. We were able to drink and eat quietly in a bay. And sleep in the front of the boat on the mattresses. In short, everything was perfect! Do not hesitate!
