Overview
More
Whale Watch Tenerife is a small science based Whale and Dolphin watching organisation run by Marine Biologists. We are dedicated to respectful Whale and Dolphin watching tours that allow us to collect data for our research and conservation efforts. Our Marine Biologists host small group tours and private tours from the Puerto Colón Marina in the south of Tenerife, in the Canary Islands. We created the first land based Cetacean Research Sightings Station on Tenerife for the year round study of whales and dolphins. This information is passed to the boats ensuring our guests the best opportunity to see the most species of whales and dolphins. Whale Watch Tenerife offers the most complete whale and dolphin watching experience including; guidance from our Sightings Station, Marine Biologist Guides, free tour photos, our Sightings Guarantee and listening to the whales and dolphins on our hydrophone. Join us to support sustainable Whale and Dolphin eco-adventure tourism on Tenerife.

In just an hour tour we saw pilot whales, bottlenose dolphins and a flying fish. The waves were big out at sea but the boat was sturdy and the captain skilful. Really enjoyed the trip and the explanations. Fun hour on the sea.
