“Great day at Halcon Blanco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We made a private charter for the boat for 4 hours, so we had the whole boat to our self - we were 6 adults and 2 children. We sailed from Puerto Colon at 10.00 a clock and the captain spotted after short time the first whales - He sailed up close to them, it was so amazing to see these fantastic animals only 1-2 meter from the boat. We could hear them bread, it was so nice. We counted 10 big whales and a baby whale.
We sailed around and spotted more whales, and we also spotted dolphins.
Then we sailed to El Puertito - a little nice bay, where there are turtles. There we had time to snorkel and swim while the crew made a nice barberque for us, with chicken, burgers, sausages, rice, salad, bread ect.

We all enjoyed the trip very much, and will for sure book the boat again - so a big thanks to Halcon Blanco and crew - and also thanks to Angie from Halcon Blanco who arranged everything for us.

“Fabulous day trip including fishing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

What a lovely day we had on Halcon Blanco, with captain Ancor. Very authentic canarian boat, just the right size for a very personal and informative experience. Captain Ancor's enthusiastic love of the sea life rubbed off on us all. We saw dolphins so close we felt we could almost touch. We even got to eat the fish we caught!! Yum!!! the Halcon Blanco does daily trips and charters from Puerto Colon. A lovely area to round off the day with a refreshing drink at one of the many bars bordering the pontoons. There are many different boats, and over the years I have used a few. Halcon Blanco gets my best review. I highly recommend you give it a try;

“friday 21st june whale and dolphin trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

my wife my daughter and myself went on a trip on the above day and had a brilliant time, the captain and his dog were excellent hosts/guides. we encountered upon loads of dolphins and also two fin whales migrating, this was a once in a lifetime experience to be so close to the water and these spectacular animals. a fantastic boat miles better than the larger vessels offering crowded trips. (ten people and the lovely dog on our trip) we will book this boat the next time we visit tenerife.

“An Amazing Experience With Amazing People”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

All i can say to people who are visiting Tenerife and looking to see the whales and dolphins on one of the many boat trips there are, don't bother with the big commercial boats and get on board the Halcon Blanco. I took my family and it really was the highlight of the holiday. We went for 4 hours and it flew past. The captain and his girlfriend where there to greet us and host the trip and they were just wonderful. There knowledge of the island and marine life was incredible and they really made a fuss of the kids and made sure everything was good. Only 9 onboard and lots of space. The boat was low to the ocean surface and when with the whales you could almost touch them. We also went for a swim and some lunch. Branded cold drinks and lovely spanish tapas. Was very impressed. At the end of the trip we seen the dolphins, which really topped the trip of. Thanks to Angie and Ancor for an unforgettable time and will see you again this summer with the family. Thank You

“Brilliant relaxed dolphin watching, with a top captain!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

We loved every minute of our trip, we were asked what we would like to do, (see whales,dolphins, or even turtles) then off we set. Iv sailed with them twice and both times got to see dolphins and whales! On our last trip we stopped off and swam with turtles in a small cove (sorry i cant remember the name of the beach!) but just fantastic, and a trip i will remember for a long long time! Thank you very much Halcon Blanco, i can't wait for my next visit!
