Absolutely brilliant whale watching tour - we would recommend to anyone who is interested in learning more about and seeing marine wildlife in this area.

We booked a private tour as we were on holiday as a family of 6 and the rib was the perfect size for us. We felt safe and looked after at all times and really felt like the tour was tailored to what we wanted to try to see, with the Captain asking if we wanted to move on or stay for longer to watch the incredible Bryde’s whale. I could have stayed there all day!

Maria provided a huge amount of information during the tour which was fantastic - so much so we hardly had any questions as everything we wanted to know had already been answered! Both the Captain and Maria were incredibly friendly, informative and funny.

We were lucky enough to see a Bryde’s whale and 2 separate families of pilot whales, one mum and a baby - with the baby being very inquisitive and swimming under the boat! We absolutely loved hearing the whales communicate which we listened to via the hydrophone.

It was the best morning out, everyone loved it, I could have stayed on the boat all day and we would 100% recommend.

Thanks so much for a fantastic experience and one that we will never forget.

We really enjoyed this two hour trip with Elise and Jose. The boat is a rib, which Jose drove very carefully making the boat ride very pleasant just in itself. You can see very well from where-ever you sit. Both Elise and Jose are expert at spotting the pilot whales and dolphins so there were plenty to see. Elise is very knowledgable about marine species and was able to answer all our questions. I would throughly recommend Whale Watch Tenerife, which seems to be very respectful of the natural environment and the need to preserve it. Masks were mandatory and worn throughout

Very nice and professional team. Captain John not only drives the boat well over the waves, but explains everything about the animals with enthusiasm. We saw a large group of pilot whales and accompanied them for a long time. There were two mothers with their babies. John would have loved to jump into the water. Of course, the nature conservation rules are very strict, which is also correct.

Thank you for your comment and for choosing us! All our team is happy to know that you had a wonderful experience and you had the opportunity to observed moms and babies. When we see babies, they are so cute that we would love to hug them but, like you said, rules are very strict and that is very important for the welfare of the animals. Be respectful, it is for us the best way to get in touch with nature.

Wonderful tour and great experience with John and María who were both courteous with us, and respectful and knowledgeable about marine wild life. We saw many groups of pilot whales as well as a group of bottlenose dolphins who got right next to our boat in a playful display, and a group of striped dolphins that are not endemic to the area; they were just passing through, so it was a rare sight. I went with my son who had never seen whales or dolphins and he had a blast. For him it was the highlight of your trip to Tenerife. The small boat was just what we were looking for: we were just 4 passengers, so we could savour the experience in a peaceful environment. I highly recommend this tour!!!

On that marine safari we had John as the captain and Maria as the guide. Both not only know their subject and could answer all our questions but they obviously also love and respect nature and marine wildlife.
We could watch lots of different kinds of dolphins swimming and playing close to the boat and also saw a young turtle swimming next to us. We thought we wouldn't see any whales on that day until John offered to exceed the scheduled time a bit in order to go in search of some...which he found !
Maria also took tele pictures which she sent us on the same evening. They are what we actually saw but of a better quality than what we could have done with our phones or compact cameras !
For all those reasons we highly recommend that small organization !

My wife booked the tour for the family online and it was fairly straightforward. We met our tour guide at gate 3 of Porto Colon Harbour. After a short safety brief we set off and headed out .Our first sighting was of a pod of Dolphins and they came in fairly close, the tour operators make a point of not crowding or herding the animals and preferring to let them come as close as they want to,and make a point of picking up any plastic or trash up if they see any. After a while and many Dolphins we went out father to finger the Pilot Whales , and to be fair it wasn't to long before we did . My favourite bit was the high speed return to port accompanied by Dolphins racing the boat and leaving the water completely and swimming in the wake of the boat . The operators are very knowledgeable and care for the environment and also take photos and underwater videos of your trip , we all enjoyed it very much 5 stars

As a family of four, we had the best two hours in the friendly, reassuring and knowledgable company of John and Maria.
Bryde's whales, spotted dolphins (a nursery group eliciting many 'oh how cute!' noises from my kids) and bottlenose dolphins. Finally, we just managed to glimpse some pilot whales from a distance before having to head back to shore.
Really impressed that they followed the guidelines and respected the distancing laws, unlike many other boats and water craft we saw. A shame the law isn't enforced. Don't worry about taking photos, as Maria emails her high quality shots to you a few days later, free of charge. Just enjoy the ride!

Our 2 hours boat ride was amazing, and really enjoyable thanks to John, who was incredibly nice and passionate, answering all our questions thanks to his true knowledge of marine life.
The best time was when a baby pilot whale came to say hi, allowing us to watch him from real close. Love how respectful of the animals and the sea the crew was.
Thanks again for giving us these beautiful moments and memories, and for being so attentive to my sister’s well-being as she was afraid to get sick. Keep up doing this amazing work, I hope we’ll come again someday !

Wonderful whale watching trip, expertly hosted by John and Maria. We saw several families of pilot whales, as well as a bottlenose dolphin. John was always sure to stop the boat at a respectful distance and, with the engine switched off, we were lucky to have the whales swim close by. A really magical family experience, made all the better by both John’s and Maria’s infectious enthusiasm and love of marine life. Whole heartedly recommend this trip.
