Overview

Whale Watch Tenerife is dedicated to respectful whale watching tours and cetacean (whale and dolphin) research. Our Marine Biologists host small group tours and private tours from the Puerto Colón Marina in the south of Tenerife, in the Canary Islands. We created the first land based Cetacean Research Sightings Station on Tenerife for the year round study of whales and dolphins. This information is passed to the boats ensuring our guests the best opportunity to see the most species of whales and dolphins. Whale Watch Tenerife offers the most complete whale and dolphin watching experience with support from our Cetacean Research Sightings Station including; our Sightings Guarantee, Marine Biologist Guides, free tour photos, and listening to the whales and dolphins on our hydrophone. Tour fees support our whale and dolphin research and conservation projects. Join us to support sustainable eco-tourism on Tenerife.

In just an hour tour we saw pilot whales, bottlenose dolphins and a flying fish. The waves were big out at sea but the boat was sturdy and the captain skilful. Really enjoyed the trip and the explanations. Fun hour on the sea.
