Visit Whale and Dolphin Watching

Dolphin and whale watching is a highlight of a trip to Tenerife.

Tenerife is the second most popular spot in the world to go whale watching and there are 25 different species of whale and dolphin to try and see including blue whales, pilot whales and bottlenose dolphins.

There are many companies offering excursions, mostly based around the south coast of the island. Trips usually last 4-5 hours (though shorter trips are possible) and take place in large glass-bottomed catamarans offering the chance to see whales underwater as well as on the surface.

Often the boats will stop at one or two places to admire the scenery and swim in the sea.

A buffet lunch is often included in the longer excursions.

Here are a few addresses for whale watching tours.
