Full description
Sail off the coast of southwest Tenerife on a 2-hour boat excursion looking for whales and dolphins. The boat departs from Puerto Colon, travelling 2 or 3 miles from the coast, where the pilot whales are often to be found. The beautiful sea mammals live permanently in the area, and are seen all year around. Sailing by catamaran, you will also pass by some fish-farms, where the clever dolphins are often looking for an easy meal. The crew are very knowledgeable about all the whales and Tenerife's other marine life. As you sail, you will also learn about the huge squids that can grow up to 40 feet (12 meters) in length, and live at depths of up to 2,600 feet (800 meters) between Tenerife and La Gomera.

We went first to see the dolphins and later the pilot whales and we managed to see quite a few. They offered us one drink per person at the beginning. I liked that the ship was not overcrowded. The only negative point is that the explanations were on the way back but with we couldn´t hear them well because of the wind. Overall the activity is worth it. It takes about one hour 45 min.

Lovely relaxing experience and perfect duration (2 hours) The staff were informative and at the same time quiet and calm, and we were so lucky to see the grace of dolphins, whales as well as a sea turtle! Super nice experience and beautiful touching to see the animals in their right surroundings All this for 200kr per nose.
