Description

Dolphin & Whale Watching in Los Gigantes

The dolphin and whale watching tour starts in the port of Los Gigantes in Tenerife, with a maximum of only 8 passengers on board. The almost silent hybrid boat is specially designed for these tours and protects animals and environment in equal measure. The probability of an encounter is extremely high. After all, the Islands belong to the best sighting areas in Europe. In fact, of the about 79 known species in the world, 29 can be found in the Canaries. Especially the waters around Los Gigantes are known for their enormous biodiversity. Pilot whales and bottle-nose dolphins are native there and the common dolphin (flipper) as well as sperm whales and even Orcas cross the area. So, if you have always dreamed of seeing wild cetaceans, whale watching in Los Gigantes in Tenerife is the best opportunity to do so.

Please understand that the dolphins and whales are not to be disturbed during this tour. The boat will therefore have to keep distance from them. Approach and interaction does always exclusively come from the animals.

    Simon

    The group was really pleasantly small and we were lovingly looked after and cared for. Nobody got seasick and we all listened to the expert explanations of the guide. We have seen several whales and also quite a few dolphins and it was especially nice to experience how much care was taken not to disturb the. Also, the view of los Gigantes in the evening light was unbeatable. Thanks again for the great experience. can only recommend it and would book it again any time.

    We were not disappointed. We had some great sightings including Pilot Whales, Bottlenose Dolphins, and the highlight, a mother Brydes Whale with calf. The scenery was spectacular, especially the Los Gigantes cliffs. The boat was very comfortable, with some nice snacks/drinks served. Finally, the hosts were excellent, very knowledgeable and clearly holding the welfare of the wildlife as the top priority. Overall, a tour is highly recommended!!!

    Wow, what an amazing tour. We saw dolphins, pilot whales and turtles. And additional we got a great view of the Los Gigantes cliffs. The guide did an excellent job, giving a lot of interesting information about the animals.
    The boat is smaller and more private than others, which gives a much better experience.

    Great tour with friendly and very knowledgeable guide. You could tell everyone loved the animals and the sea. One stop even served to fish trash out of the sea.
    Thanks to the careful approach to the animals, one of the whales even came curiously up to the boat.
    Food was also very good.
    I can only thank you very much for this wonderful experience and would repeat it anytime.

    absolutely amazing experience all around! Our guides were phenomenal and so incredibly knowledgeable about the animals and their habitat. On our tour we saw both dolphins and whales as well as lots of birds and stunning views of the Tenerife coast line. They offered snacks, drinks and binoculars free of charge and took photos throughout the experience. The boat we went out on was also energy efficient and very fuel efficient which minimized our carbon footprint during the excursion. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who values animal wellbeing, habitat preservation and being emerged in our natural world!

    It was an amazing tour. We were a small group and got a lot of interesting information about the whales, dolphins and the local animals in the sea in general.
    The guides are very kind and friendly guys. They took care of us and answered all our questions.
    During our tour, we saw lots of dolphins jumping around and swimming with our boat, and two turtles.
    When they saw a mask swimming in the sea, the guide took time and got it out. We fully recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in seeing the wildlife around Los Gigantes.

    Great. We not only saw cetaceans, but also other very interesting species. Very professional people, they explain everything in detail, they are aware of you and above all very environmentally conscious. Totally recommendable.
