Activity description

Get up close to dolphins and turtles in their natural environment in a non-intrusive way on a 2.5-hour kayaking adventure in Tenerife that respects their freedom and habitat.

Climb aboard for a 2.5-hour kayaking adventure in Tenerife and get up close and personal with dolphins and turtles in their natural environment. Observe the amazing creatures from a vessel that does not frighten them or disturb their natural habitat.

Experience the extraordinary sensation of being surrounded by pods of up to 30 dolphins that sometimes put on a show by jumping high into the air! Home to up to 5 different species of dolphins, including bottlenose dolphins, the waters just off the coast of the island are the perfect spot to marvel at these lovable creatures.

While the bottlenose dolphins are the easiest to spot, other species inhabit the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, including rough-toothed dolphins, striped dolphins and common dolphins. As wild animals, views cannot be guaranteed, but there is a 95% chance that you will encounter the animals on your trip.

Get an optional swimming break and snorkel with turtles and bull rays in a bay only accessible by kayak as a bonus. Usually, within a few minutes, curious turtles arrive and get very close, swimming around and in between you. Also the bull rays regularly glide elegantly along the sea bed underneath you.

Offer Description

The activity is subject to weather conditions and may be cancelled for safety reasons.

Itinerary

First of all you will be instructed on how to navigate with a kayak in the calm waters of Los Cristianos bay. Then it’s out to sea to look for the dolphins. Usually the dolphins swim alongside the kayak and often put on a show, jumping in and out of the water. The whole trip takes around 3 hours of which at least 2 are in the kayak.

Activity requirements

No experience in kayaking is necessary and all instructions on how to use them will be given before we leave the shore.

Included
  • Photos of the activity
  • Kayaks, paddles and life vests
  • Insurance
  • Expert guide
  • Wetsuits (in winter)
