Detailed description

Kayaking in Tenerife + snorkeling with turtles from Los Cristianos

A unique nature experience on the Atlantic: kayaking on Tenerife and snorkeling with turtles. Enjoy a tour with a professional guide in a fantastic setting and possibility of a very special encounter. The kayak tour on Tenerife takes you from the beach in Los Cristianos to the rocks of Palm-Mar, also known as the Bay of Turtles. When the sea dwellers are "at home", you can observe the animals snorkeling (about half an hour). Since they are free-living animals, a certain distance and respect are always necessary. Sometimes, however, the turtles themselves are so curious that they swim directly towards the kayaks or snorkelers.

Kayaking in Tenerife starts with an introduction to paddling technique - especially for the novice kayakers. The guide will show you on the beach how to board, paddle, turn, stop and balance. The introduction is so compact and kayaking so easy to learn that you don't need any previous knowledge for this trip. You paddle in a group from Los Cristianos to the south, passing black beaches and imposing rocks until you reach the first anchorage. The equipment needed for the snorkeling tour on Tenerife is included in this excursion and will now be used. Directly from the boat it goes into the water. Apart from the turtles that we would like to visit here, you will also observe many fish and marine animals.

The kayak tour on Tenerife is the ideal excursion for families with children, couples, friends who are looking for a meaningful activity and want to get to know a beautiful part of Tenerife. After the snorkeling stop in the bay of the turtles, the guide will take you further out to sea with the kayaks. Now the time has come to search for Tenerife's dolphins that live in the coastal waters. It is not for nothing that Tenerife is also called the dolphin island. We can't guarantee this highlight, but we would also like to see it at the finale before we return to the beach of Los Cristianos with the kayaks.


Valid on the reserved day or for 12 months after date of purchase if no date has been selected. You will receive the tour operator's details with the purchased ticket. Attention: reservation is required! The reservation can be made through sunbonoo as part of the booking process or later by contacting the tour operator directly via phone or email.

Gladly again

Very nice tour, well organized. We saw dolphins and turtles. It was a bit exhausting but that was worth it.

Gerne wieder

Sehr schöne Tour, gut organisiert.
Wir haben Delphine und Schildkröten gesehen.

It was a great experience but also very exhausting and eventually went on my arms. But I would like to do it again.

Excellent from start to finish

I could have stayed all day there, the turtles were awesome! also all the other animals we saw. The water was very clear, we have enjoyed it tremendously. Thanks to the customer service that recommended this kayak trip because the catamaran was full.

Excelente de principio a fin

Me podría haber quedado todo el día por allí, las tortugas fueron impresionantes! también todo los demás animales que vimos. El agua era muy clarita, lo hemos disfutado tremendamente. Gracias a los de servicio al cliene que nos han recomendado esta excursión en kayak porque el catamarán estaba lleno.

We came very close to the dolphins and could take pictures. We also went to caves and were able to snorkel with turtles. My daughter has gotten a little sick but the guide even had tablets with him. Gladly again!


Wir sind den Delfinen sehr nah gekommen und konnten Fotos machen. Außerdem sind wir zu Höhlen gefahren und konnten mit Schildkröten schnorcheln. Meiner Tochter ist etwas schlecht geworden aber der Guide hatte sogar Tabletten dabei. Gerne wieder!

Transparent kayaks were fantastic

The trip was impressive and the fact that the kayaks were see-through gave the idea of feeling like you’re right in the water.

It was a great and complete tour in a beautiful area. We could see the animals, paddle in the transparent kayak, swim in the clear sea, snorkel and enjoy the sun;) Good price, but a little more time would have been even more ideal


Es war einte tolle und komplette Tour in eine herrlichen Gegend. Wir konnten die Tiere sehen, im transparenten Kayak rumpaddeln, im klaren Meer schwimmen, schnorcheln und die Sonne genießen ;) Guter Preis, jedoch wäre etwas mehr Zeit noch idealer gewesen
