Whale and Dolphin Watching Sailing Boat with Drinks, Snacks and Swimming Time
From US$68.35
The seas near Tenerife are well known for their whale-and-dolphin sightings, and this small-group cruise from Playa de las Americas lets you see them from an uncrowded yacht, without fighting off the crowds for views. Plus, scuba equipment is provided for you in case you’d like to snorkel in the waters and search for turtles. Hotel pickup and drop-off, snacks, Champagne, and unlimited other drinks are included for your convenience.
What to Expect
Start with hotel pickup in south Tenerife, or choose to travel independently to Puerto Colon marina in Playa de las Americas.
Meet your skipper, board the deluxe yacht, and relax as you sail or motor to an area where pilot whales are usually seen. Absorb the breezes and coastal views, and as you cruise, savor a glass of Champagne, fresh sandwiches, and unlimited beer, wine, and sodas.
Keep watch for dolphins, and after cruising for about 30 minutes, watch for groups of whales, sometimes including mothers, fathers, and their young.
Learn about local marine life from the skipper, and after your whale viewing, cruise to a secluded bay frequented by turtles. Drop anchor here and opt to swim from the yacht, perhaps snorkeling using the supplied equipment to see turtles.
Lastly, enjoy more sandwiches and drinks before cruising back to dock, where your trip ends on disembarkation or with a hotel drop-off.

Picked this trip as lots of positive reviews. Was not disappointed. Saw loads of dolphins, whales were not around for our trip. Great to see so many dolphins swimming right alongside the boat. Would do this again when visiting Tenerife.

Whale watching

Pretty good trip for half a day. Very polite people, professional and as we were in a boat, not a catamaran, it was pretty cosy with all but 2 more couples travelling with us. We expected something similar to our earlier catamaran trip to La...More

Whales and dolphins

What a wonderful way to spend a few hours. Very professional company ! Started off at 10am with a glass of bubbly then sailed out to watch the sea life before stopping off for lunch and a swim

Please can I ask what is the best time to see the marine life 10am or 1pm ? Or are both as good as each other ? Also did anyone see Sea Turtles when snorkelling/swimming in the bay. They are my fave!
