You wouldn't think about Tenerife as a destination for getting up close and personal with whales, yet it's warm waters near Los Gigantes are the perfect spot for it!
Parting from the port of Los Gigantes you'll begin your sailing excursions. You'll navigate out to open water in search for dolphins and whales, if the wind conditions are good you'll get a full sailing experience with the boat being carried by the wind on the sails. During the three-hour charter, the crew will offer drinks and you can also take a dip in the water and go snorkeling in a beautiful small bay. There, you'll have something to eat to regain your strength enjoying the great views of the cliffs.
This amazing sailing excursion gives you the chance of encountering many different species of sea life! On the daily charters, the crew normally finds groups of bottlenose dolphins and short fin pilot whales both residents around the waters of Tenerife. Also, you might find sea turtles, the most common species are the loggerhead turtle and the green turtle.
Since whales are wild animals with a characteristic behavior, sightings depend entirely on nature, the crew can never guarantee sightings. Occasionally sperm whales, mantas, tunas, humpback whales and the shy beaked whale can be spotted. The south of Tenerife is considered one of the best places in the world to see dolphins and pilot whales so it’s very strange to finish the day without any sightings.
