The seas near Tenerife are well known for their whale-and-dolphin sightings, and this small-group cruise from Playa de las Americas lets you see them from an uncrowded yacht, without fighting off the crowds for views. Plus, scuba equipment is provided for you in case you’d like to snorkel in the waters and search for turtles. Hotel pickup and drop-off, snacks, Champagne, and unlimited other drinks are included for your convenience.

What to Expect
Start with hotel pickup in south Tenerife, or choose to travel independently to Puerto Colon marina in Playa de las Americas. Meet your skipper, board the deluxe yacht, and relax as you sail or motor to an area where pilot whales are usually seen. Absorb the breezes and coastal views, and as you cruise, savor a glass of Champagne, fresh sandwiches, and unlimited beer, wine, and sodas. Keep watch for dolphins and watch for groups of whales, sometimes including mothers, fathers, and their young. The boat also has state-of-the-art sonar equipment for listening to the whales' calls. Learn about local marine life from the skipper, and after your whale viewing, cruise to a secluded bay frequented by turtles. Drop anchor here and opt to swim from the yacht, perhaps snorkeling using the supplied equipment to see turtles. Lastly, enjoy more sandwiches and drinks before cruising back to dock, where your trip ends on disembarkation or with a hotel drop-off.

We’ve seen a lot of dolphins, whales and we even saw a turtle. The tourguide has a lot of knowledge and made sure that we could see all these animals. We could enjoy food and drinks too and had a wonderful experience.

We’ve seen a lot of dolphins and pilot whales, the boat, snacks and drinks were good. Unfortunately we didn’t actually sail, we just went on the motor. Stil it’s nicer to be on a medium size sailboat, then on one of the enormous catamarans or a motorboat.
