Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Climb aboard for a 2.5 hour kayaking adventure in Tenerife, and get up close and personal with dolphins in their natural environment. Observe the amazing creatures from a vessel that does not frighten them or disturb their natural habitat.

    Experience the extraordinary sensation of being surrounded by pods of up to 30 dolphins that sometimes put on a show by jumping high into the air! Home to up to 5 different species of dolphins, including bottlenose dolphins, the waters just off the coast of the island are the perfect spot to marvel at these lovable creatures. As wild animals, views cannot be guaranteed, but there is a 95% chance that you will encounter the animals on your trip.

     Get an optional swimming break and snorkel with turtles and bull rays in a bay only accessible by kayak as a bonus. Usually within a few minutes curious turtles arrive and get very close, swimming around and in between you. Also the bull rays regularly glide elegantly along the sea bed underneath you.

    Only joking. Folks, it's a 2.5k kayak out. Fall out and snorkel, search for turtles (man, have we been unlucky this trip... 0 - 3), 2.5k kayak back. Great fun, very well organised and monitored. Second visit.

    Went in January on a cloudy day. Snorkled with a turtles, kayaked and saw dolphins close to some fisheries. Like advertized. We were lucky since it is not a 100% guarantee to see both types of animals on every tour. The guide Anna was a cheery and skillful.
