The close encounter with Dolphins and whales in Tenerife There are 28 species of Whales and Dolphins that either reside in or pass through Canarian waters. Pilot Whales and Bottlenose Dolphins are resident to the waters off the South West coast of Tenerife and enable the whale watching industry to all but guarantee sightings. Rough Toothed dolphins used to be resident nearer La Gomera before the fast ferries arrived and were frequently seen; they have now moved further around the island. Sperm whales reside between Tenerife and Gran Canaria.

We did the 2 hour boat trip & totally enjoyed every minute, we saw lots of pilot whales & dolphins, the trip was so calm & relaxing & would highly recommend it to anyone even if you are a bit nervous of boats like myself, we will definitely do this trip again, loved it.

We choose 4,5 hours cruise. The best thing you can do on your holiday. The boat was really full but after all we managed to get nice seats. Nice crew. Beer, sangria and soft drinks included. We saw many dolphins and pilot whales in the coast of La Gomera. Nice views in sunshine. Ok lunch was also included to the... More

Very good value. Saw both pilot whales and dolphins. Good views. Attentive crew. Nice boat. Ignore negative reviews and go on 5 hour trip. Get ticket at online in las Americas as 10 euro cheaper.

The cruise sold to us from the sales assistant was an open top, lounging, sun bathing experience. We were promised a free bar and an underwater floor to see all the animals below the surface. However, the top deck was a crowded and seated area with hard plastic chairs. The 'free' bar was water, Pepsi and beer, which we had... More

Great trip through the waters of Tenerife (apart from the sea sickness) beautiful sightings of whales and dolphins in their natural habitat. Much better than seeing them in a cramped tank at a zoo. Friendly staff and a great swim during the trip and a beautiful sunset

Me, the wife and 3 children had a great 2 hour boat trip! We saw dolphins and pilot whales. By far and away the best €60 I spent on holiday. Only downside the strong smell of diesel in the glass bottom section. Other than can't recommend enough!!

Not good value for money. Much better and cheaper trips in Los Christianos. The food was diabolical. The agent said that they catered for gluten free option. Not so. Definitely would not recommend this trip. Aggressive photographer.

Went on the morning trip on the advice of the tour rep, she told us the whales and dolphins were more active in the morning. Chose the 4 hour trip. We were not disappointed. Late September, not busy, plenty of viewing space. First we saw the pilot whales, the boat stopped and we could see the whales underwater through the... More
