My family and I went on a 2-hour whale watching trip yesterday on the Bahriyeli with Captain Sam and crew (out of Los Cristianos). Captain Sam was fantastic! She really cares about the dolphins and whales and knows so much about them. We really appreciate her philosophy about respecting wildlife in their own environment. She and her crew even "talked"...

We had a great couple of hours on the boat whale and dolphin watching. The crew of the boat were very friendly and knowledgeable about all aspects of the excursion. Scott and Lewis sold us the trip whilst we were passing their office in Los Christianos, we were not given a hard sell and were pleased that we made the... More

We had read reviews from another boat trip to do this but their office was closed and only 6pm..I'm so glad! Further down the road near the port we saw these guys. Scott said that their boat was a sail boat and not many booked on it for 11am. So we booked. €20. Refreshments on board. Next morning we arrived.... More

This is a great thing to do when in Tenerife. The office is located next to the port and is run by Scott a very amiable chap who owns the boat you go out on. He is up front about what you may not guarantee for dolphins but they guarantee you see whales. We were very fortunate when we went... More

Booked this trip online before we left for our holiday, good value at 74 Euros for 3 adults and one child. There were maybe 40 people on the boat but most were sat inside or on the top deck, it was very roomy and we had tonns of space to ourselves as it is a large boat. We positioned ourselves... More

I really enjoyed my 3 hour trip watching dolphins and whales. The boat was big and not too crowded so there was plenty of room to move around and find a seat at any part of the boat. People seemed to have a lot of fun jumping off the boat for a swim. Lunch was OK. They only served one... More

We made the reservations though internet. You get a 15% discount if you book through internet The boats are a little hard to find as there is no office where you meet. You meet right in the harbor at the boat. If you are not the first tour on the day, the boats might not have returned yet. So be... More

Booked the 3 hour trip for 30 euros each and loved it. Boat not overcrowded so plenty of room to sit. Saw loads of pilot whales and dolphins, lots of photo opportunities. Stopped for lunch and people could swim if they wanted to. I didnt bother with lunch but partner said ok and drinks are free during lunch. Would happily... More
