SAIL WITH US AND ENJOY THE WHALE WATCHING TENERIFE

If you are in Tenerife or you are going to visit us soon, you cannot miss this experience.

We will make you enjoy it in a different way, without stress, We will sail towards the island of La Gomera, with the impressive Los Gigantes Cliffs in the background. For the first inhabitants of Tenerife, the world ended in the extreme northwest of the island, where an impassable rock wall stood. It was about what is now known as Los Gigantes cliffs, at this point is where our journey begins.

Los Gigantes respond to the classification of ancient cliff, product of the modeling of an old massif and is appreciated, for its proportions, as a mega cliff. It measures between 300 and 600 m and is buried in the water no more than 30 m deep. Its walls are not uniform, they also present the traces of erosion, leaving some ravines hanging with difficult access; some virgin beaches and coves are also present along this coastline.

In our navigation we will carry out the activity of Cetacean Watching Tenerife, where we can enjoy the company of marine mammals that are found in the area such as pilot whales, bottlenose dolphins ... ..and if we are lucky we could see other marine animals such as tropical fin whales , bottlenose dolphins or one of the 38 species of cetaceans that can be observed in the Southwest of Tenerife throughout the year.

Our crew will provide you with information about both the coast and the animals that we find along the way such whale and dolphin watching tenerife. Finally, you can take a bath or snorkel, as well as savor our food and drink on board.

WHALE AND DOLPHIN WATCHING TENERIFE

The union of various factors, both geological and biological make the island of Tenerife a unique place in the world for whale watching Tenerife.

Specifically, its west face, on the so-called “Rasca-Teno” coastal strip, which runs from Punta de Teno to Punta Rasca, this area is considered to be of special protection and it is home to species of cetaceans such as the Tropical Pilot and the Bottlenose dolphin. Our excursions take place in this privileged area.

You will see how the whale and dolphin watching in Tenerife will leave you a good memory.

Whale watching in Tenerife

The southern coast of Tenerife is an extraordinary place for watching whales in their natural habitat. These large animals usually show up around the southwest area and give an unforgettable spectacle to visitors and nature lovers.

Sail with us and enjoy watching whales in Tenerife

Our crew is in charge of informing and teaching our passengers about the whales and dolphins that usually appear during our excursions. Various species can be seen while sailing, some of them reside in the area and can be seen throughout the year. Others are migratory and therefore we will only find them in the months in which they pass through Tenerife.

Resident species: The pilot whale and the bottlenose dolphin are the easiest specimens to spot on any excursion.

  • The pilot whale is a cetacean of more than 5 meters and can weigh up to 3.5 tons. Its large melon-shaped head easily identifies it.
  • The bottlenose dolphin can measure between 2 and 3 meters, is gray in color and travels in groups of 10 to 30 specimens. It can be seen frequently near the coast.

Migratory species:

  • • The glacial right whale can be seen between autumn and spring, with more probability if the sea is calm, while the common rock whale is usually found in autumn and winter. Both can measure between 24 and 27 meters and weigh more than 70 tons.
    • The common dolphin appears in winter. The highest probability of seeing it is during December and January. It can measure between 1 and 2 meters and weigh about 200 kilos.
    • The false killer whale, which is actually a large dolphin, can appear throughout the year, but is most likely to be found during spring and fall. It normally measures 6 meters and can weigh 2 tons.
    • The Atlantic spotted dolphin is the smallest of these cetaceans, measuring over 2.1 meters and weighing 110kg as adults. They tend to roam the area throughout the year, but are best found in spring or fall.wander in the area all year round, but they’re best seen in spring or autumn.

Other not so frequent cetaceans:

Tourists who enjoy whale and dolphin watching in Tenerife may be lucky to find other less common but equally beautiful cetaceans. The sperm whale swims throughout the year but it is difficult for it to rise to the surface.
Anyone who gets to see one should feel very lucky. Pilot whales, striped dolphins, tropical rock whales, and rough-toothed dolphins are species found throughout the year in the Atlantic. With good weather and a bit of luck, chances are you will spot them.

The best adventure on a tour

Every whale watching excursion in Tenerife departs from the Los Gigantes Marina, with stunning views, the adventure begins: whales and dolphins are waiting to be discovered.

The journey continues to the Cliffs, where the landscapes are splendid, virgin coves and impressive eruptive processes that are 7 million years old, where you will discover spectacular construction processes that were produced by the stacking of basalt flows as a result of volcanic activity.
The vertical walls that we can see today are the result of the incessant erosive activity, and the effect of the waves, which has been undermining the cliff, causing the coastline to recede and offering the colossal view of Los Gigantes, as well as harboring seabirds.

like the Pescadora Eagle, for the enjoyment of those nature photographers.
There is no problem if the visitor does not know the marine fauna. During the trip, the components of our crew will be happy to explain anything related to the marine ecosystem.
They will teach traveling adventurers to differentiate between the species that appear and provide details about each of them.

Environment awareness and safety above all
Sail trips are made only while weather conditions allow and everything is safe for passengers and crew.
Our company is highly respectful of the natural environment of marine fauna. Therefore, boats maintain safe distances that allow sighting without disturbing animals. Fortunately, that doesn’t stop confident dolphins from coming up and swimming around.
Our sailing crew will no hesitate in leaving the area if the cetaceans happen to behave in any way that could jeopardize the safety of the trip. Whether at sea or on land, wild animals that are constantly approached for observation may sometimes feel bothered by human presence. That’s not too frequent, but it can happen.
Excellent tourist service right until the end of the trip
All of our crew are not only experts in marine biology, they are also excellent hosts. They will take care of any details and make sure everyone has a very good experience.
In addition to whale and dolphin watching in Tenerife, tourists will enjoy other activities such as snorkeling or simply a swim in the sea.
A homemade menu prepared with fresh ingredients will be served on board. If someone is allergic to any type of food or needs to follow a strict diet, they should notify the crew before the excursion and they will do what is necessary to ensure that the food is safe.
