Booking option: Snorkelling and kayaking tour off Tenerife with dolphin watching

You can see dolphins and turtles on the guided kayak tour off Tenerife, which is even suitable for beginners. This allows you to get to know the sea and its fascinating inhabitants up close. The excursion starts on the beach at Los Cristianos with familiarisation and basic training before you head along the southwest coast towards Palm-Mar. No previous knowledge is required for this tour, just a bit of stamina and a reasonable level of fitness for this sporting activity. You will go out to sea in normal kayaks, which are better than the more sensitive, transparent double kayaks in a number of respects, and paddle along the coast to the best places to watch the dolphins.

With a bit of luck, these intelligent marine mammals will show up right in front of you and you can experience the animals closer than you have ever seen before without disturbing them. Just enjoy the effect of this special moment. Afterwards you will continue by kayak into the seclusion of Turtle Bay, which is only accessible by water, where you can go snorkelling and swimming. Normally the animals come to see their visitors within a short space of time. You can even get an amazing view of stingrays here. Enjoy the fantastic spectacle of the open blue sea and the island of Tenerife during the tour. The guide will take photos during the kayak tour, which will be made available to you afterwards.

Detailed description

Tenerife Kayak Tour with dolphin watching and snorkelling with the turtles

Come aboard for a 3-hour kayak adventure off Tenerife and experience dolphins and turtles at close quarters in their natural environment. You can watch these amazing sea creatures from your kayak without frightening the animals or disturbing their habitat. You'll be amazed when 30 or more dolphins gather around the boat and jump into the air in front of you or dive under the kayak! The coastal waters are a home to dolphins and the perfect place to see these amazing, lovely animals. Tenerife is also known as a dolphin island - 5 different species, including bottlenose dolphins, live in the warm waters all year round. Even whales can occasionally be seen here as they pass through.

As these are wild animals, it is not always possible to guarantee a dolphin sighting, but there is a 95 per cent chance that you will come face-to-face with dolphins on this kayak tour off Tenerife. The tour along the southwest coast starts on the beach at Los Cristianos and will take you close to the shore, first to where the dolphins are often seen, then to a secluded bathing bay, where you can go snorkelling with turtles, as stingrays glide along the seabed. Even the turtles are naturally curious and appear within a few minutes to see who has come to pay them a visit. They are also not afraid to swim close to the boats. This experience of nature is probably one of the most beautiful and impressive things on Tenerife.

No previous knowledge is require for the Tenerife kayak tour. A reasonable level of fitness won’t do any harm and will help you cope with the route across the waters in the Atlantic Ocean easily so that you enjoy the whole excursion. The experienced guide will explain everything you need to know about canoeing at sea, turning and reversing or how to paddle properly at the start. You can also ask him if you have any questions during the trip. As well as animal watching, you will enjoy a kayak tour past the breath-taking scenery of Tenerife and glide along the coast at your own pace. A great experience!
