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.

the Tour was a nice and I would say the kajaking experience was a great morning activity. We didnt see that much animals, but it was okay for us since you can't plan it :)

L'activité s'est bien déroulée, avec un premier arrêt pour nager avec les tortues et un second pour observer les dauphins (que nous avons eu le chance d'apercevoir de loin) Un moment très agréable pour le modeste prix de 30€/personne

Belle sortie en kayak malheureusement on n’a pas vu de dauphins de près (quelques ailerons au loin) ni nagé parmi les tortues...on ne peut pas garantir leur présence !

Overall it was a nice experience... Unfortunately didn‘t get to snorkel with the turtels though. Wouldn‘t reccommend it to people who are scared of the ocean or don‘t have any kayak experience as it was stressful to me even though I had.

Ana was amazing at handling the group in the water and always checked on us throughout the journey. We got to see the animals and she took some lovely photos of us as well. She untied a dolphin that was in distress and we got a show as well. Highly reccomend it was an amazing experience!
