About
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.

Highlights
Watch for whales and dolphins on an uncrowded yacht trip from Tenerife
Take advantage of the unobstructed views to look for marine life 
Swim or snorkel from the yacht with a chance to see turtles 
Glass of Champagne, snacks, unlimited drinks, and snorkel gear included 
Small group limited to 11 means more space to relax on board 
Choice of departures, with hotel pickup and drop-off available for 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 watch for groups of whales, sometimes including mothers, fathers, and their young. The boat also has state-of-the-art sonar equipment for listening to the whales' calls. 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.

Brilliant trip! Super stoked! The Whole family loved it!
Absolutely brilliant day, was everything we hoped for and more! Captain Dani was a star, a wonderful host and captain. We saw lots of dolphins and whales, had a
Lovely swim and Dani also put the sails up for a while when the wind rose a little which was sublime. Drinks were free and cold. We were six and there were 2 others on the boat and we really felt like we had a private trip. Can highly recommend to anybody considering a boat trip!

Nice private boat experience seeing whales
Apr 2021 • Family
We had a great time with our captain Yuri. The boat was very nice. Drinks were plentiful and we were lucky to see a good number of whales (3 groups of 3-5) in a couple hours. The views of the island from the sea were also spectacular - we got lucky and had very clear views of Mount Teide. We also enjoyed a little swimming in a nice cove. Great private experience for the 7 of us that booked together.

Perfect experience
Aug 2020 • Couples
We’ve seen a lot of dolphins, whales and we even saw a turtle. The tourguide has a lot of knowledge and made sure that we could see all these animals. We could enjoy food and drinks too and had a wonderful experience.

Dolphin and whale watching
Feb 2020 • Couples
We’ve seen a lot of dolphins and pilot whales, the boat, snacks and drinks were good. Unfortunately we didn’t actually sail, we just went on the motor. Stil it’s nicer to be on a medium size sailboat, then on one of the enormous catamarans or a motorboat.

Best experience of our trip
Nov 2019
I wanted to take my boyfriend and our two friends out on a whale watching trip for his birthday. I researched many different companies however, this one stood out with good reviews, 3 hour tour options (most are just 2 hours) and food and champagne onboard. The trip could not have been more perfect. We were picked up and dropped off by Natalia on time. Our sailing guide had in-depth knowledge of the whales and Tenerife as a whole, and was really friendly but not intrusive.

We saw lots of whales and it was really spectacular to watch them. I was concerned about finding a company that would do these trips ethically, without disturbing the animals. When I was on board I never felt uncomfortable with how close they got or felt the animals were in any kind of distress, as the sailer ensured the motor was turned off when we started to approach them. There was sound equipment onboard which we were eager to use but the sailer said that he was not able to get close enough with the motor turned off without disturbing the whales on this day - I really appreciated that they were thoughtful of this.

I am vegan and I emailed before to organise my lunch - it was delicious and you could tell they had gone to effort to make it. On top of this, we were given unlimited snacks, fruit, soft drinks, water, wine and beer.

We also has a 30 minute snorkelling stop which was a lovely touch to the trip. We swam in amongst dozens of fish and enjoy the picturesque scenery.

I would 100 percent recommend this company and would rebook with them in a heartbeat.

Lovely Trip
Nov 2019
The service was very professional from start to finish, we were picked up from our hotel and taken to our boat. Everyone involved was very nice especially our captain Juan who was friendly, polite and informative. The lunch was nice with freshly made roll/baguette, grapes and snacks. Drinks were flowing nicely. We were lucky to see a pod of pilot whales which was very emotional to see such beautiful creatures in their own environments. We then headed back to port but not before Juan stopped near a bay so we could have a swim with the fish. Overall a lovely time just wish it had been longer.
