Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, is known to be a paradise for nature lovers. One of the most exciting experiences that can be had in Tenerife is the sighting of cetaceans in the marine strip of Teno-Rasca. In the Canary archipelago, you can see more than 30 different species of cetaceans.
The combination of various factors, both geological and biological, make the island of Tenerife a unique place in the world for whale watching.
One of the most common cetacean species in the Teno-Rasca marine strip are short-finned pilot whales (Globicephala macrorhynchus) and bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus). Seeing these animals in their natural habitat is an exciting and unique experience.
