We went on the tour during COVID-19 times, so were the only ones there. We got to ask lots of questions. The whole crew, including the captain and photographer, are Biologists and were very knowledgable and helpful. We saw loads of pilot whales some of which came very close to us! It was truly amazing to get to know the animals in their natural setting and the crew was very respectful towards them. They also picked up plastic along the way. Overall, you could see this was a group of people passionate about what they do and the animals we observe, that wanted to ensure their wellbeing, not just use them for people's entertainment and at the same time, the whole process really was greatly entertaining! <3

Whale Watch Tenerife is an excellent, responsible and professional small whale-watch company. The team - John the skipper and Ely the guide are enthusiastic and passionate about marine wildlife. Ely is a highly experienced marine biologist so if you want to learn more about the wonderful ocean inhabitants you encounter on the trip you'll have an expert teacher. As a responsible company they respect the animals' space so they keep the boat at the legal distance for whale and dolphin-watching. So, if the whales are feeling relaxed and are curious about the humans they might come towards the boat. On my trip we saw two loggerhead turtles - the first was a bit shy and soon dived but the second one stuck around a while. Then of course the highlight was seeing around 100 pilot whales - males, females and juveniles. It was a thrilling experience and the guide and skipper seemed pretty delighted too. An absolute privilege to see these beautiful ocean dwellers. On board there is also a hydrophone so you can hear the whales (or dolphins communicating underwater. Following the trip Ely will send the photos to you of all the sightings. Great to get these as my own pics are never great. The trip takes a maximum of 10 passengers and the boat (a rigid inflatable) is pristine and comfortable.

We LOVED this trip! The circumstances were great (beautiful weather, calm ocean, respectful approach of the animals), the guides knowledgeable and enthusiastic and we got to see pilot whales, and two types of the bottlenose dolphin (residents and the oceanic ones). Due to covid there was only me and my friend so we basically had a private tour! And as a bonus we got the beautiful professional photos at the end. Thanks John and Ely!
