What to expect
  • Once gathered at the meeting point we will embark at the agreed time in our boat "Papacho 2" with a maximum capacity of ten passengers. Our on-board biologist will explain the details of the fauna that we can find and the keys to their conservation. During our tour we will approach different groups of cetaceans, sea turtles and seabirds always respecting the space of the animals and without interfering with their natural behavior. That way our visitors and our crew will interpret together the secrets of animal behavior. Upon sighting we will completely turn off the boat's engines so as not to disturb the animals and launch a hydrophone to listen to the sounds that the animals use to communicate or hunt. In the 3-hour tour there is also a time to anchor in a beautiful cove where our biologist will explain issues related to the conservation of sea turtles and coastal natural spaces. You will have time to have some snacks (sandwiches and drinks) that we will have prepared for you and to take a dip in crystalline waters with snorkeling that we will provide.

Amazing experience
Oct 2021 • Friends
David is truly caring about the environment and really passionate and enthusiastic about marine wildlife. Very remarkable and impressive. We learned a lot through his explanations and he took a lot of time answering every question. The guys stopped for every bit of trash in the ocean and picked it up. It was a truly amazing experience and definitely one of the best parts of our vacation. We saw lots of whales and some dolphins and enjoyed sandwiches and drinks on the boat. Please book this tour and support the guys - you won't regret it.

Fantastic experience!
We had an amazing experience out with these guys today.
We saw dolphins and also some pilot whales with their young. From start to finish we were immersed in the whole experience and they were full of knowledge and enthusiasm for the whales and dolphins that inhabit these oceans.
We also took our 4 year old son and they were so great with him and made it very enjoyable and interactive.
We would highly recommend this tour over any other whale watching tours in the area. These guys deserve it and it’s well worth every single penny.
We will definitely be back 😊

Amazing whale watching experience!
Sep 2021 • Friends
We had an amazing afternoon with Atlantic Eco Experience. There was only four of us on the boat, it was like a private tour! The guides are extremely passionate about what they do and explained a lot about the different species. They care about the animals and let them come to us and do not get too close. We were lucky enough to see many pilot whales, one even came very close to the boat. They pick up trash from the ocean along the way and we loved the sustainable approach they have. We would highly recommend doing a whale watching tour with them, thank you again!

Today we had the 2 h tour and it was really amazing. We saw more animals then we have ever expected, dolphins, whales. Forget Hawaii, this is the real adventure.
The crew was awesome and took all the time needed. In the end the trip was 2,5 h.
Thank you so much.

Great experience, expert guides
It was a fantastic experience, I can only recommend their 2h whale watching tour. Expert guides, who know a lot about whales and the wider ecosystem in Tenerife. They respect the whales by stopping the engine as you approach them. We also stopped a few times to pick up some plastic floating in the water.
