What you'll do

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 stress them or disturb them.
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 or swim directly underneath the kayak!
Then it's into the water for an optional swim break and snorkel to look for turtles and bull rays. Usually, within a few minutes, curious turtles arrive and get very close, swimming around and in between us. Also, the bull rays regularly glide elegantly along the sea bed underneath us.
Other things to note
The minimum age is 14 years old. If you are prone to sea sickness it is a good idea to take a sea sickness pill 30 minutes before the trip. We also have them available upon request.

Where you'll be

We will climb board the kayaks on the beach in Los Cristianos after a small briefing and then its out to sea in search of dolphins. After spending some time with the dolphins, we head towards a bay that is only accessible by sea where we will stop for an optional swim and snorkel break to look for turtles and bull rays. Within a few minutes curious turtles arrive and get very close. Also the bull rays regularly glide elegantly along the sea bed.

this was the highlight of our holiday so far! we've managed to see dolphins even though from quite far away but Ana managed to get pictures which she shared. It was an amazing experience. Ana was lovely and she explained everything before leaving! She was very patient and the pace of the kayaking was good. Sadly we did not see turtles but we loved it! the pictures were also a bonus as we have something to remember the experience with! I'd recommend to everyone to do this when they are in Tenerife! Thanks Ana :)

Exactly as the description says. We were a group of 12 people on 8 kayaks. We saw some dolphins about 20m away from us. Then when we went into the water, we saw multiple turtles as wellnas a stingray! The guide made sure the animals are treated with respect (no touching, screaming etc.). Keep in mind that kayaking is a sport and you will be tired after 2 hours! ;)

Klare Empfehlung! Wir haben den Ausflug sehr genossen, die Schildkröten zu sehen ist eine magische Erfahrung. Wir haben uns während des Ausflugs immer sicher gefühlt und der Umgang mit den Tieren ist sehr respektvoll.

An ocean adventure for those who are up for a challenge. Swimming with turtles was magical and the hosts were really caring and fun, great 2.5 hours at sea! 👌🏼
