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.

Seeing the dolphins and whales was fantastic what a great experience. The staff were ok but not as helpful or informative as we thought they could have been. The glass bottom was good although one of them was overpowering with the smell of diesel. Overall a good experience

My wife does not like boats - to the extent that when we used to go on the Dover - Calais ferry she would find somewhere to curl up while I looked after our daughters. So we decided that we would go on a larger boat that we hoped would be more stable and booked the RD online the previous... More

Even though my daughter got sea sick, she saw dolphins and pilot whales and was delighted, worth every penny just to see the look on her face.

Within no time Dolphins were in front, then whales. The lady commentated informing us of breeds eat and notified us when they spotted more. Saw so many,... More

We went on the 4.5 hour cruise. The boat is very spacious and comfortable for the amount of people that were on it the day we went. We stood on the front of the boat to watch the passing Dolphins and pilot whales. They were absolutely fascinating to watch. The boat would change course and sail towards the varying pods... More

The Royal Delfin tour was amazing! You can choose between 3 trips (2 hours, 3 hours or 4.5 hours). We chose the 4.5 hours trip so I can only comment on this one. The staff, 'guide' and cameraman were all very nice. The trip starts with a ride (about 1h20) along the coast to reach Los Gigantes (during which a... More

Absolutely fantastic. We booked the longest trip. Lovely staff, helpful and kind. Boat was three quarters full. Food was lovely and plenty to drink. Seeing the dolphins and Whales was amazing. I throughly recommend this trip and this company.
