      The best Tenerife has to offer
      Truly excellent. The Biosean crew was safe and totally trustworthy. We had never gone scuba diving before. The instructor was attentive to our questions, guided us perfectly (in fluent English and French, no less). His main occupation is that of marine biologist. He knows enormous amounts on the ecosystem. Ultimately, the experience was fantastically rewarding. I can't recommend Biosean highly enough.

      Whale watching afternoon
      Super experience we had a chance to see whales turle and dolphins. Really on a great way. We learned lots of things. But on a way the animals are not hunted at all we let them came to us not hunting them down like my experience in Indonesië. That is way I booked with them. I really don’t want to harm there habitat. So grateful thank you for the marvelous day

    A tour with Biosean is an amazing opportunity to complete your vacation in Tenerife with whale watching! During the tour you can spot whales, dolphins and also turtles and you can learn about them from a professional marine biologist.
    Biosean’s goal is to give the guests the best experience by showing them the marine animals, but also to do it with the smallest disturbance possible during the encounters. The approach to the animals is very slow and careful, first we keep a distance with the boat, where we can see them and the interactions between them, and then if the animals get curious they can come closer to us. This method is very delicate and really nice because we don’t cause stress to the animals this way. During the tour we can not only watch them but also hear them with the help of a hydrophone! It’s truly an amazing experience to listen to all the whistles and echolocation noises that the animals make!
    The crew is really nice, they are very welcoming! Mika has a huge knowledge about the animals and he tells a lot of interesting facts during the tour so you can have a better understanding on what you see.
    Overall, if you want to experience whale watching in a conscious way like this, I highly recommend this tour, believe me, it’s really rewarding!

    The tour was absolutely amazing. We saw several groups of pilot wales and spotted dolphins. Misa and his crew gave us a lot of interesting information about the life of these sea mammels. With only 10 people max. the tour feels very personal. With quite a lot of wind during our way back Misa navigated us safely across the waves.
    I highly recommend the tour for everyone interested in scientific work of sea life.

    Me and my girlfriend came away from the experience constantly talking about it over lunch, we loved such a close encounter with the pilot whales and didn’t expect the whales to actually approach near us! Misael and his two interns were so welcoming and informative- you can really see the passion Misael demonstrates and he really went the extra mile and was happy to answer any question and I just love what the whole task of this organisation is trying to achieve- even stopping the boat to collect harmful waste was a real moment and we felt like we were really part of something here.

    Thanks again guys, will be back again!

    It was the most amazing Whale Watching Tour I have ever done (did one in New Zealand too). You gain a lot of Marine Science knowledge on the tour. The Tour operator absolutely respects the Whales and Dolphins and makes sure, they are not bothered by our presence. In my opinion, this is the way how tours like this should be done.
    The tour is around 2,5h and you go in a small boat in groups of around ten people to watch out for Dolphins and Whales. Once animals are sighted, the engines are stopped and the boat just floats on the ocean, while you watch the Whales and Dolphins. The Tourguides, which are also Marine Scientists, explain what is going on in the sea and what the animals (whales and dolphins) are doing. They make sure to not go to near to the animals in order not to stress them. Furthermore, they let us listen to what kind of sounds are in the sea. And it is really noisy down there.
    It was a real pleasure to join this tour and I would do so again. Thank you for the good work and continue to do so! It was the highlight of my trip!

    We booked a whale watching trip and it was one of the greatest experience of my life . Our guide , Misa ,was really good at explaining the behaviour of whales and dolphins . The small group to have a more direct experience is a very good thing... We were lucky to have seen so many whales

    We had a lovely time whale watching. My husband and I very much enjoyed it. My children had fun,with my 10 year old coping well, but perhaps a bit much sitting on a boat for the younger one (age 8). I'd definitely 100% recommend for adults and older kids (>12). With younger ones it's perhaps a wee bit too long (2 hours sitting on a boat).

    The highlight was seeing some turtles close up. Both my children loved that bit!!

    It's lovely that the staff really really care about the marine life and the ocean.

    Perhaps a bit serious for younger kids unless they are completely mad about marine life and seas.

    Highly recommended whale watching tour. The boat is small and the experience is much better than in bigger boats. Respecting the nature is emphasized by the organizers.
    It may be difficult to find parking place in the town, make sure you have enough time for it.

    Biosean provided a great tour. The knowledge was fantastic and it was an interesting trip. Their love and passion for the animals and sea conservation was clear. We saw loads of pilot whales and some other interesting sea life including a Portuguese man of war. Thank you for looking after us for the morning - I am pregnant and they made the tour as comfortable as possible, offering the safest seat, toilets before we set off and refreshments. Definitely recommend for those conscious about animal safety and preservation.
