Really highly recommend this trip, the tour guides are super friendly, welcoming and speak a whole myriad of different languages so no one misses out on anything. Drinks and food are provided, my boyfriend is gluten intolerant and I’m a pescatarian so it was brilliant that both of those are provided for with gluten-free and veggie sandwiches (which you don’t even need to request ahead of time).
Plenty of space on the front of the boat to sit and watch all the dolphins and whales, we saw bottlenose dolphins and pilot whales which was incredible and we were able to get so close as well.
My boyfriend also got very sea sick and the hosts were very kind looking after him as best they could!!

Amazing experience 10/10

I looked at a few boat trips before choosing Third Element and all I can say is, GO. The boat is clean and beautiful, David, Jaimie, and Eileen are lovely, knowledgeable, and perfect hosts. Well worth the money and we were also blessed with the weather. We saw dolphins, whales, and sea turtle and were told lots of info about them all. From start to finish, this is a class act and I cannot recommend this family run business highly enough. Third Element is a cut above most of the other boat trips out there, so if you're looking for a 3 hour spin out into the stunning ocean, served drinks and lunch, watch dolphins play alongside your boat, and swim in the clear, blue waters off the cliffs of Los Gigantes, then BOOK this trip today.

Pickup from our hotel was bang on time, staff were very friendly and were very good at providing information about the nature etc.

We saw lots of dolphins and some orca whales and the lunch and drinking were also good. It was a slightly chilly morning and a bit cloudy so we agreed to skip the snorkelling/swimming and instead sailed down to Masca and a relaxing trip along the Log Gigantes cliffs.

The family loved seeing the dolphins up close playing with the boat and it's one of those "must do" experiences that will stay in your memory for a long time.

We were extra lucky because our charter only had 7 people so there was loads of space, however even if there were full set of 12 on board there is loads of space... it was funnny watching an "alternative" tour whizzing about with customers squashed into fixed seats along the sides... didn't look anywhere near as enjoyable!

The dolphin and whale tour with Third element was such an experience! Since our family had 8 people (6 adults, 2 kids ages 4 and 7), we had the boat all to ourselves. We didn't get to see whales since they were too far away, but saw 2 packs of dolphins close by and it was amazing. I would say, that even if you don't see anything, this trip is worth the money. We were sunbathing in front of the boat the whole trip.

First we drove around looking for the animals and then went to a nice calm spot to swim/snorkel.

Snacks were provided (also gluten free on request) and everything was really good. Drinking cava on a sailboat made us feel like kings and queens! Eileen made sure we had everything we needed and told us interesting stuff about the animals.

All three of the staff spoke excellent English. We got a pick-up from the hotel, which was on time and safe. Would have been driven back to the hotel by them as well, but we chose to walk back to Puerto de Santiago (about 2km maybe) to see the Los Gigantes village.

Compared to the prices of the more touristy cruises packed with other people, this is definitely worth the very reasonable extra cost. Would do it again anytime!

This was a fantastic experience! We saw dolphins and whales, and got a terrific view of the Tenerife coastline. The crew were brilliant: friendly, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable about the sea-life and the island itself. They were very professional and focused sailors but also relaxed in their manner so you felt perfectly safe without feeling like anyone was fussing over you. The boat itself was beautiful and in excellent condition, and the limit on numbers of passengers just added to experience. The highlight of our trip to Tenerife and one of the best experiences we've had on any holiday. Would highly recommend!

This trip was an awesome experience with a highly professional and super friendly crew on a spotless, safe and well-maintained boat.
Eileen, Jaime and David are fantastic hosts and took care of every aspect of the tour. From spare towels (we forgot ours), sea sickness pills (even a calm sea can be tricky), advice on free parking lots for the rental car and suggestions on local dining, they had it all covered. The crew also has an in-depth understanding of the local marine life, which they happily shared in German, Spanish and English and we easily spotted dozens of whales and dolphins in no time before heading to a beautiful snorkeling break near the shore, then having a good snack and being back on time at the pier. Definitely a highlight of our journey. Thanks again for the great experience!

Excellent afternoon tour with Jamie, Eileen and David. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience. So informative and your desire for us to see some dolphins was so strong that we ended up staying out longer then planned!
Great sandwiches, continuous offers of drinks, felt very safe on such a stunning boat and loved that only 8 customers a time.
Hope to see you all again and take care, Elizabeth

My partner and I travelled with Third Element in the morning session of the tour on September 18th 2021. Although the crew were not aware, this tour formed part of a wider proposal I had planned later in the day for my now Fiancée and the crew truly made this a special experience, even without knowing!

Right from the outset this felt like a truly personal experience. Immediately after booking, David reached out via WhatsApp to check where we were staying and offer the pick up service as we were staying nearby at Playa La Arena.

The transfer was comfortable in a high class air conditioned MPV, and David was friendly and chatty throughout the journey, asking about our holiday, if it was our first time on the island etc.

When we arrived at the marina, we were introduced to the rest of the team, and were given an intro to the tour and to the other passengers. The tour was very personal with only 8 of us plus the 3 crew. The crew spoke multiple languages and were incredibly friendly, offering drinks, checking if there were any snacks we didn't like etc. Covid compliance was also comprehensive.

It only took about 15 minutes to reach the first pod of pilot whales and Eileen was able to spot them from an incredible distance! We were able to get really close and it was a truly mesmerising experience with really detailed information provided by the team.

The boat was kitted out with cushions all over the front where you can sit, dangle your feet in the water and relax etc. We spent about an hour watching the whales and dolphins and at no point were we just wandering around looking for them.

After the whale watching we sailed right under the Los Gigantes cliffs to a little cove where we were able to swim in the clear water and the team even provide snorkelling gear if you wished to snorkel. The water was cold but incredibly refreshing, and lunch was also provided during this time.

We then sailed back and were dropped back at the hotel. All in all the tour was about 3 hours and was probably the best experience of anywhere we visited during our holiday. I have recommended Third Element to a number of colleagues and friends travelling to the island next year, and we are also planning to return next year. Incredible value for money and excellent service all round!

After 10 minutes we were surrounded by spotted dolphines, which were very playfull and very fun to watch. They seemed to enjoy the presence of the boot.

The staff was very pleasant, enthusiastic and helpfull. They had a lot to tell about the sea life and the surroundings.

All in all, great times

If you’re looking for a boat trip to see dolphins and whales then look no further! This is a fantastically executed tour, from complimentary hotel pick up and drop off (which was right on time and in a clean vehicle), to the most accommodating and knowledgeable team. We saw bottlenose dolphins , pilot whales and hammerhead sharks, went for a swim and snorkel, and had lunch on the spacious boat. I had mentioned to Jaime that it was my boyfriends birthday, and they surprised him with a cake and song.

Eileen was really attentive, constantly offering drinks and snacks.

You will love this experience. The team were wonderful.
