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.

Amazing trip! We booked via get your guide where is was about £50 per person and it was worth every penny.
The boat had just 10pm on it which meant plenty of space for everyone.
Guy (our captain) was super knowledgeable and first took us out to see wildlife, we saw dolphins a turtle and a number of whales. We then headed back towards the coast with a drink and ham and cheese baguette to enjoy along the way. The bay was very quiet with not many other boats so swimming was lovely with as many drinks as you wanted to enjoy in the sunshine.

Wasn't sure,what to expect as,been to Tenerife many times but never before done a boat trip.What an amazing time,we had..Captain Guy was superb ..his knowledge and enthusiasm was endless but never boring .Saw lots of dolphins and a whale together,with a turtle ..amazing ...dolphins right at the side of our boat for ages .Then knowledge and tour of the local area ...couldn't have been a better experience from when we were met by the owner,at the Dock. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this experience ...well worth the cost and there were only 2 families on the trip .5 of us in total ..much better,than the larger crowded boats.

An incredible experience with the family, young and old, many thanks TSC team! Very professional and very attentive - my father is somewhat disababled these days and was a bit apprehensive about the trip, but the owners and crew made him feel at ease straight away and looked after him, and all of us, throughout the journey. We saw dolphins and whales in adundabce and the whole experience from start to finish was magical, unforgettable. Great snacks and plenty of refreshments, served by the crew, whenever required. We cannot recommend the experience highly enough. Thank you TSC, once again.

Due to weather our booking was rescheduled from a afternoon to a sunset cruise. This didn’t allow us to go to los Gigantos which is supposed to be really beautiful. We did see some pilot whales but no dolphins. Snacks and drinks were available but we didn’t indulge much due to the waves of the sea. If you get sea sick easily beware, even the smaller waves can pack a punch if you are not used to being on a boat. The views of the sunset were pretty amazing at sea. Also the Italian captain was a cool dude. Overal a nice but slightly overpriced experience for what we got.

Hello Happy to hear you enjoyed the amazing sunset which you get from the boat, we are also happy we where able to take you to see the whales and sorry you did not see dolphins, it’s nature after all. Just to let you know, out 3 hour charters do not include los Giganties, that is only possible on our 6 hour private charters. Uri the captain always does his best

We chose this company based on smaller group numbers and the fact that their website advertises transport is included. We paid the deposit and enquired about the transport and was asked instead to get and taxi and the cost would be deducted from the final amount. Getting a taxi there was easy as we had a taxi rank outside out hotel, and we were given money back. However, getting a taxi home was another matter - massive queues at the taxi rank nearest the port and people jumping the queues and arguing. We walked to another rank and waited for 10 mins but no taxis stopped. In the end we walked for a while and managed to flag a taxi down. This really spoilt the trip for us as we would have preferred a trip with transport included. The boat trip itself was really nice - was a bit choppy but nothing too bad and we saw whales and dolphins. I think the stop off in the bay to swim is not great as it is very choppy and made us all feel a bit sick and snorkelling there is quite hard when you are bobbing around so much.

Amazing day out! Watched a family of pilot whales swim around us for a while! Note that dolphins won’t necessarily be seen. They told us ‘you don’t find the dolphins, the dolphins find you’ so we didn’t get to see any. I did also request a vegetarian option for the boat which they said was no problem and then didn’t actually cater to it. Which was slightly disappointing. But a fabulous morning none the less

Hi, Many thanks for the review! We are very sorry for the mistake with the vegetarian option. As for the dolphins we can never guarantee that the animals will be seen as they do live in the wild. This being said we can't wait to have you onboard again so we can amend the mistake and hopefully see the dolphins. Kind Regards

Fantastic trip. We (2 adults, 2 kids of 5 and 8) had a great experience. Just a small party of 8 guests plus captain Dani (very nice guy!) who headed out for maybe 25 min before spotting a very non-shy sea turtle. Another 10 min and we spotted numerous pilot whales. Very happy party, then we sailed to a bay for about 20 min of swimming and chilling with sandwiches and beer. Only minus: No sonar was used and the sparkling wine on arrival was not champagne, but still 5/5. Best excurtion we’ve experienced regarding value for money.

The trip itself was wonderful watching the baby whales playing and being out on such a beautiful ocean. The pick up confusion still lets it down as Trip Advisor states it’s included and then the ticket states it isn’t included. I was offered a taxi reimbursement but after the trip a woman ordered me a taxi and said I would take the second one that arrived. When I went to get in Paul barged passed and put 2 guys in. When I tried to explain there was a queue he dismissed me and just answered his phone. When I went back to the woman she just said it’s busy it’s 4pm I’ll get you another. That’s not how you treat customers so I left them to it and organised my own. They owe me 15 euro.

Hi, Thank you for your review and feedback! We apologise for the confusion with the 2 guys taking your taxi. However the woman did offer to call another within 2 minutes. As for the pickup in general it is clearly stated that to be eligible for a hotel pick up you have to call a minimum of 24 hours in advance. You did not do this meaning a pickup was not included for you. This means that we do not owe you 15€. This being said we sincerely apologise for the confusion with the taxi and 2 guys. Thank you for coming onboard with us and we are very happy to hear that you enjoyed the charter. Kinda regards

Absolutely brilliant day, was everything we hoped for and more! Captain Dani was a star, a wonderful host and captain. We saw lots of dolphins and whales, had a
Lovely swim and Dani also put the sails up for a while when the wind rose a little which was sublime. Drinks were free and cold. We were six and there were 2 others on the boat and we really felt like we had a private trip. Can highly recommend to anybody considering a boat trip!

Absolutely brilliant trip. Capitan of the boat was very knowledgeable about marine life and boating, as well as being exceptionally passionate about the island of Tenerife and the natural beauty contained within it. We saw copious amounts of dolphins and swam in gorgeous clear waters. I would note however, you are required to be at the boat 15 minutes before departure and you need to let them know if you’re vegetarian - neither of which we were notified of prior to the trip. This doesn’t detract from a wonderful excursion though which I would recommend to all of my friends and would have no hesitation on going on again. ¡Muchas gracias!
