Description:

After picking you up from your hotel, we drive in our comfortable private van towards Puerto Colón in Playa de las Americas where your boat will be waiting.

If there's sufficient time before the departure, we will enjoy a coffee in a nearby cafe before hopping on the boat. For guests who are concerned about being nauseated, our guide will be providing seasickness pills before we get onboard. Let your guide know if you think you might need it.

Upon boarding the boat, you will be greeted by our captain and his friendly crew. They will take you around the vessel to get familiar with the facilities onboard.

We depart Puerto Colón towards the open sea in search of whales. Your knowledgeable captain knows the areas populated by the resident pilot whales. Whales are generally sociable mammals and tend to hang out in pods. Our captain is very capable of navigating around them without causing any disturbance. These curious creatures often swim around or dive under the boat, giving you a chance to observe them closely. With a bit of luck, we might spot other species such as humpbacks and the Bryde’s whales as they pass through the Canary Islands during their annual migration.

For an authentic sailing experience, no music will be played onboard. This is so that we can focus on the mammals, listen to the sounds of the sea, and converse with your travel companions, your guides or the crew.

Your captain will then sail us to the best area to spot dolphins before dropping anchor at a serene cove. There will be time for sunbathing, swimming and snorkelling. Snorkelling gear will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own. Enjoy some wine, beer or soft drinks. You will also be served a light lunch with freshly prepared baguettes. All these are included in the price.

We then make our way back to the port where your van will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

This tour is held in small groups, typically 1 guide to 8 participants.
