The close encounter with Dolphins and whales in Tenerife There are 28 species of Whales and Dolphins that either reside in or pass through Canarian waters. Pilot Whales and Bottlenose Dolphins are resident to the waters off the South West coast of Tenerife and enable the whale watching industry to all but guarantee sightings. Rough Toothed dolphins used to be resident nearer La Gomera before the fast ferries arrived and were frequently seen; they have now moved further around the island. Sperm whales reside between Tenerife and Gran Canaria.

Ours was a windy day, we didn't realise the boat would swing so much. we had a child and 2 small babies, they should have alerted us to go another day.. they didn't. we had horrible time with sea sickness due to heavy wind. food was horrible. we could not watch any dolphins except 2 again due to heavy tides...

Enjoyable trip (4.5 hours) on the Royal Delfin. Crew very professional and well informed. Royal Delfin very clean, basic meal, but everyone enjoyed the trip with some taking a dip in the sea from the back of the boat. Lots of dolphins and whales to see which is a very special sight. Would recommend.

56 euros each sold to us by our travel rep in hotel meeting so expected great things for this price! No real comments made by him so thought this would be good. How wrong we were! 2.5 hour coach journey. Each way! Leaving at 1130... Far too late! Pointless 20min pit stop at random gas station when nearly at location...... More

“Day light robbery!!! AVOID!” Puerto de la Cruz is 110 kms from Puerto Colon. We have various pick up point to attend, traffic conditions vary. We only do the “Pit Stop” when we have time, but for your convenience as there is not really anything to do where the boat is located. Yes we take pictures like so many other,... More
