Whale and dolphin watching excursion

A permanent population of short-finned pilot whales and common bottlenose dolphins live next to the south-west coast of Tenerife. This colony affords us a 95% chance of sighting cetaceans at any time of year. Furthermore, in these waters, we can find up to 21 other different species of these mammals – including the giant blue whale. And their presence is so close to the coasts that the Canary Islands have become the European location that attracts most people for whale and dolphin watching.
The beauty of wild animals in nature
From the ports of Los Cristianos, Puerto Colón and Los Gigantes in the south of the island, boats set sail on short marine excursions organised by specialist companies to see the beautiful spectacle of these wild animals attracted by the richness of the sea bed and excellent water temperature. The boats that go close to them bear the "Barco Azul” logo, which guarantees compliance with regulations to ensure a full and happy life for the cetaceans.

Sostenibilidad
- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Use the waste- paper baskets and, insofar as possible, separate and place your recycling waste in the appropriate containers.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- In natural spaces and at viewpoints, do not leave the trail or the spaces designated for people to be in.
- Respect and look after the area's historic and cultural heritage, along with the public furniture and items for visitors, such as information panels or telescopes and binoculars.
