You don't need to be a scuba diver to get in touch with the magical underwater world of Tenerife! During this amazing snorkeling excursion near Los Cristianos you'll come across sea turtles and manta rays.
Dive Center Ocean Friends' expertise in Tenerife's underwater world and the secrets it hides will allow you to experience the amazing wildlife of the island on a snorkeling trip. The diving spot is only reachable by boat, which is one of the reasons why sea turtles, manta rays, and other species have been able to thrive in these waters.
Located 15 minutes away from Los Cristianos, Costa Adeje and Playa de las Américas, Dive Center Ocean Friends offers a unique experience suitable for everybody.
There is a high probability of seeing the turtles, but there is no 100% guarantee since they are animals living in their natural state.
After meeting the crew at the Port of Las Galletas (Marina del Sur), you will begin a journey of approximately 20 minutes by boat through the Malpais de Rasca, a Protected Natural Area, whose spectacular landscape you will enjoy from the sea.
You will arrive at the cliffs of El Palmar, where the boat will anchor. In this area, you will be able to swim with green turtles for an hour. In addition to turtles, you will be able to discover many other species of the typical marine fauna of the Canary Islands: pejeverdes, sargos, fulas, trumpet fish, etc. It is also highly possible that you get the chance to see rays, very common in the area.
At all times you will be accompanied by an experienced instructor, who will give you all the instructions on the use of the equipment and, in addition, will transmit a lot of information about the marine life that you will find.
Without a doubt, it will be a unique experience that will fascinate you. In addition, you will leave with souvenir photos, so that this experience remains truly unforgettable!
All participants must be able to swim. Minors must have authorization by their parents.
This activity can also be done as a scuba dive. A Scuba Diver or Open Water certification is required. In this case, the price is the same but the duration will be around 50 min. Please get in touch before booking.
