Whale watching in Tenerife

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.

Great tour with very knowledgeable guide. Done with utmost respect for the animals and environment. We got very lucky and pilot whales swam up to the boat on their own. If you want to go whale watching in Tenerife, this is the place you should go.

Have just returned from the 3 hour whale watching experience & couldn't recommend it enough. The biologist on board was so informative from the minute we boarded. We were lucky enough to see 2 pods of pilot whales & had the added bonus of releasing a couple of sheerwater chicks
